Welcome to LaPrade's Marina

LaPrade’s Marina is a full-service marina located on Lake Burton. Located just 2 hours northeast of Atlanta, we are nestled in the peaceful west end of Wildcat Creek Cove. LaPrade’s Marina offers boat storage and boat rentals on Lake Burton. Additionally, Watersports Central is located onsite and provides the most professional boat service on the lake. LaPrade’s Marina is a great place to relax and enjoy everything the lake has to offer.


For 102 years, LaPrade’s has been essential to the region. The location was first used as a home for the men who built the dam that created Lake Burton. It was then used as a fishing retreat with an open dining room. People would sit elbow to elbow while enjoying great meals together. Today, LaPrade’s Adirondack round log timber frame style is a key part of the Lake Burton experience.

Lake Burton is the largest lake in the area spanning 2,775 acres with 62 miles of shoreline. The lake is also included in the listing of the top ten most pristine lakes in the United States. It remains full of clear, clean, cool water throughout the Georgia boating season. Lake Burton hosts families who swim, boat, and fish throughout the season. The lake also provides opportunities for relaxing cocktail cruises in Sunset Cove off the western shore of Burton Island.
