Holly Park Marina is the trailhead of the TPW Patroon Bayou Paddle Trail, where you can experience the world class fishing and wildlife viewing of upper Toledo Bend Lake. The trail consists of a 2 mile loop and an 8 mile loop for more experienced paddlers.
Along the trail you can fish for bass, crappie, bream, and catfish. Barfish are plentiful during the summer. Holly Park Marina has great lodging and a full service tackle store with fishing equipment, lures and live bait. You can also pick up breakfast or lunch at Holly Park’s grill – they serve the best burgers on the Bend - and their convenience store is well stocked with cold drinks, ice, snacks and other goodies.
A diverse range of wildlife make their home on Patroon Bayou and you may spot resident Bald Eagles, Ospreys, Herons, Kingfishers, whitetail deer on the bank, and many other animals.
Make memories with friends and family! Paddling the Bayou is a great group activity for family gatherings, spring break, birthdays, holiday celebrations, or a girls day out while the guys are fishing a tournament.
We operate from Holly Park Marina, weather permitting, from the pavilion across the highway from the store. Rentals are by appointment only. Please use our Kayak Reservation Form or give us a call at 936-201-6495.
