Knotty Oar Marina is the only full service marina on the water of

Minnesota's favorite recreational lake: Prior Lake!


We are centrally located in a protected bay between Upper and Lower Prior Lake. We are a full-service, certified clean marina. Our friendly, highly trained marine store staff and mechanics are ready to serve you. When you visit you'll see that the Knotty Oar Marina was built by Thane Tande to deliver a premiere experience and serve as a landmark gathering spot for the community.


Everything we do is designed around you having a great day on the water!


Your safety is a priority. To ensure protection of your watercraft we provide a secure environment including security cameras, donation of slips to the Scott County Sheriff's Water Patrol Unit, and monitor your mooring lines and fenders (bumpers) to optimize the protection of your watercraft. Let our staff take care of the details. We will bilge pump your covers after rain, adjust the height of your lift cover and maintain a clean environment.

We are your authorized Crest Pontoon and Mercury Outboard dealership!
