Yes.  The ramp opens at 7 am and closes at 5 pm.

Can I store my boat at the dock?

No.  We reserve the Dock space for our Guide boats and rental boats.   Please note that when bringing your own boat, there is parking space for registered guests for boats on trailers.  Boats are not permitted to be tied to the dock or any Stetson’s property such as trees or fences with no exceptions so as to not damage property.  The river generation levels are not controlled by Stetson’s or any other Resort on the White River.  We do not know when or if water generation will occur or how much. 

Can I rent a boat?

Yes.  Stetson’s provides rental boats for registered guests of Stetson’s only.  Rental hours are from 7 am to 5 pm daily.  The Dock closes at 5 pm and all rental boats are to be returned to the Dock prior to 5 pm.   We suggest reserving a boat for rent when making your reservation.  Unlike other resorts, we charge a flat fee for half day or full day rentals that include gas, personal flotation devices and seats in the fee.  We do charge a late fee for any rental boat returned after 5 pm.  A maximum of 4 persons only are allowed in the boat at one time. We do not provide anchors or drag chains.  

Prior to leaving the dock, you will have a Stetson's staff member lookover the boat with you.  Any damage which occurs while the boat or included property is in the renter's possesion, no matter how slight is the responsibility of the person renting the boat.  A sunk boat/motor will result in a non-refundabe fee of $1000.  The replacement cost of the Boat and/or any property lost will be charged to the renting person; in addition to the recovery fee of $1000.

What are the boat dock and launch ramp hours?

Our hours of operation for the dock and launch ramp are 7 am to 5 pm daily, year round.  Due to insurance and liability reasons we lock the dock and ramp at 5 pm.  If you plan to be on the river past 5 pm, the White Hole public access is about 1.5 miles from Stetson’s.  We know this may seem like an inconvenience, but we require rental boats to be returned to the Dock prior to 5 pm and we strive to be fair to those renting boats by closing the Dock and Ramp at 5 pm to all parties.
