Patona Bay Marine & Resort

Patona Bay Marina & Resort 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 & 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 & 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!
