During the course of a week-long family reunion, we took out a couple of pontoon boats from Shook's for a half-day excursion. We all had a great time, and have decided that we will do this again next year. The 4-hour time allotment was ample for us to meander towards the dam, find a place to tie up and have lunch and a swim, then leisurely make our way back to the marina. The boats we rented were clean and well-maintained. Our commitment to come again next year should speak highly of our experience with Shook's Marina. I recommend them to everyone.

The pontoon boat we rented was in poor condition. All of the seats where covered in mold/mildew and none of the electronics where working such as gauges or radio. The ignition switch did not work properly and took as long as 15 minutes fiddling with the key to restart after turning engine off. The engine would not run at low idle and stalled which only activated the situation. I do not recommend this place for boat rentals!

Shooks marina is a very friendly marina that rents pontoons boats to explore Lake Hiaswassee. This is lake that the majority of the land surrounding it is National forest so it is never really crowded due to lack of homes on the shores. You can jump off rocks into the lake, visit waterfalls, etc. Great outing for several family members because all can fit on boat and split cost of the rental.

We were in Murphy for a relaxing weekend and decided to check out the Lake. We booked a pontoon boat for Sunday and when arrived were greeted by a very nice lady who was helpful and a gentleman we believe is the owner. We were given he run down on the boat, where we could go and not go. Where must stop sites were, what not to do and we set out on the lake. Defiantly worth the time, the area is beautiful and for a time we were alone on the lake. So very relaxing. Boat was not new and could use a little sprucing up and minor upgrades. This did not deter from the good time not the lake.
