PATONA BAY Marina and Resort was chosen by the North Webster-Tippecanoe Township Board of Directors as the September 2019 Member of the Month. It is an authorized Evinrude dealership and a multi-generational family owned local business in the Leesburg area since the 1920s.
Brothers George and Robert Paton are the third generation to own and operate Patona Bay Marina and Resort. The Paton family has been active in the area since 1905, when their grandfather, also named George, came to Leesburg. In 1928,
Paton’s grandfather purchased a large farm near the lake with the dream of turning it into a family camping and picnic area. In its early days, Patona Bay Marina and Resort hosted mostly tent campers and picnickers, but over the years the Paton family has added many new features.
Today Patona Bay Marina & Resort sports a camping area for RVs, park models, and a few tents, plus cottage rentals. Guests have access to the beach, docks, snack bar, and more, and can enjoy a variety of activities, from water skiing to swimming, beach volleyball, basketball, and more.
