LAS VEGAS -- The last remaining marina on the Overton Arm of Lake Mead is set to close at the end of the month.
According to officials with the National Park Service, many popular services are expected to be cut after they did not receive any bids to take over Echo Bay Marina.
People who fish, boat, and vacation at Echo Bay Marina started noticing a decline in visitors when the restaurant and hotel closed down in 2010. They say the quiet and solitude is what they like about this side of Lake Mead.
"I have been coming here since 1983," Ed Peisker said.
He works on his trailer during the winter and makes memories with his grandchildren in the summer.
"We got pictures of her, little tiny thing, feeding fish off the swim step of the boat and the next two are coming along they are younger but they are coming," Peisker said.
The National Park Service says the RV and trailer park are some of the services set to end by February 1, along with the marina and the fueling station.
"Well it is sad. I was just telling my wife. We have had a lot of fun out here. We have raised our kids on this part of the lake," James Christiansen said.
Forever Resorts had been in charge of the services for the last three years but its contract is up. Officials with the company say it does not make good business sense to continue under current terms.
Receding waters forced Forever Resorts to move the marina three times costing hundreds of thousands of dollars.
"We had a contract in place. It was a temporary three year contract. We solicited for another contract that was pretty much identical terms for ten year period. Unfortunately, we didn't have any companies come in and submit a proposal for that," Lake Mead Recreation Area public affairs officer Christie Vanover said.
Some visitors say moving will be a costly inconvenience.
"When you figure what it's going to take to dismantle and to move, on top of what we paid to be here in the first place, it is quite a bit of money. I bet we will be into it another $10,000 to $20,000 just to come out of it," vacationer Laura Yourex said.
Others say they are more worried about losing a treasured getaway.
"We do not go to Hawaii. We don't go to Europe. We do not go anywhere, but here. This is it. This is our Hawaii, Europe all rolled together," Peisker said.
Forever Resorts says fewer people are paying to leave their boats at the marina since the beginning of the recession. The National Park Service says it is close to a deal to keep the trailer and RV park going.
