About Us

The Lake Ogemaw Marina has been providing boats, and boating products and services for over 40 years to the residents on Lake Ogemaw and to the many customers that live on the 30+ lakes within a short 30 minute drive.

Philosophy

The marina takes pride in providing competent advice and service in a friendly, relaxed atmosphere.  Many of our customers come from other areas in our state, or from out-of-state.  With limited time at “the lake” it is crucial that products provide genuine value and follow-up service is timely and complete.  This is emphasized in all aspects of the operations.

We pride ourselves for featuring “Michigan Made” products and companies. Avalon, Great Lakes Lifts & Docks and Aqua Cycle are all based in Michigan.

Owners

The owners, Dave & Anita Kepley purchased the marina in the spring of 2004.  Like so many of their neighbors they had been part-time residents on Lake Ogemaw since the late 1990’s commuting from Rochester Hills where they lived and raised their family. Dave retired after 25 years from health care management in the Detroit area and now works full time at managing the marina.  Anita is retired after 30 years as a Secondary English teacher and is often seen helping out at the marina during peak summer weekends.  She continued her career in education for 10 years with an active consulting practice, specializing in literacy. She has now retired, Spring 2014.
