Bent Hook Marina & Market is your gateway to one of the most scenic lakes in the country. 

In the early dawn, when nature is only beginning to stir from the night and the mist lays like a soft blanket across the water, you realize how mesmerizing Table Rock Lake can be. Its 43,000 acres of clear blue-green expanse easily draws you to its picture postcard scenery, and to some of the best fishing and water sports in the country. 

When you’re ready to fish, there’s no better place than Table Rock Lake, ranked nationally for its numbers and sizes of bass and crappie. It’s also good to know the marina’s friendly veteran guides, ready to take you to the best fishing spots!

Effective Immediately: If your birth year is 1984 or after and you wish to operate a boat you will need a boating license from the State Department of MO or from the state that you reside in. 

Bent Hook Marina now offers guests, whether they are residents from other states or from Missouri, the opportunity to purchase a seven-day, one time only, Temporary Boating Certificate. The applicant must have a valid driver’s license and meet all other mandatory requirements for boat rental.
