Step 2 – Learn about our locations & check availability

Please be aware that rack availability changes quickly and what appears to be an open booking online may have requests pending.

Instructions for using the availablility tool

  • Search for a Single day – EG: Start Date August 1 and End Date August 1 - we book the racks for the whole season so if the rack is available for a single day it is available for the season.
  • There is only 1 hour available to search so Start time should be 12:00 p.m. and End Time should be 1:00 p.m. – again if it is available for the hour it is available for the season.
  • As you are searching a Single day you can SKIP the Day of the week.
  • In the Venue Box choose a Single Location if two are available.  This narrows it to ONE location and will provide more accurate results.  If no results appear, try the other location.
  • In the “Search Tags” Box Choose a Single Rack Type and a Single Rack Height – you can hold the control button to choose these 2 options.  If you choose 2 types OR 2 heights, you will get NO results as no rack is Upper & Lower etc.
  • Once you have some suitable available options go to the top of the page to the “Request Space” section and click the link to submit an application.

Step 3 - Review rules and regulations

  • Boat stalls/racks are for boat storage only.
  • Permit stickers must be visibly displayed on bow of boat or front of trailer. Stickers will be mailed to customers once payment is received.
  • Short term daily bookings are not accepted. Boat Stalls are booked by the season only.
  • Winter Regulations for Glenmore Reservoir states: Any contact with the ice is prohibited.
  • No person shall place or remove a Boat in or from the waters of Glenmore Reservoir from any place along its shore which is not specifically designated and marked for such a use.
