The summer season may be technically over, but there is still plenty of good boating weather left! At this time of the year, Lake Gaston starts to have some beautiful fall foliage. It’s a great time to go for an afternoon cruise and take in the leaves changing, as well as the peace and tranquility of the place that we like to call home.

Eaton Ferry Marina is still renting boats until the end of October. We offer pontoons, ski boats, and deck boats for full- or partial-day rentals. These are perfect boats to cruise around on and grab some lunch at one of the restaurants on the lake. Renting a pontoon to enjoy the fall colors is the perfect family activity!

The Pointe Bar & Restaurant


The Pointe at Lake Gaston is open throughout the fall season and features some of the best steak, seafood, and lake views! They have outdoor seating that is the perfect place to enjoy the weather with some great food. And don’t worry about the weather cooling off, as there are outdoor heaters on the enclosed patio to keep you warm!

The Pointe is open Monday through Sunday from 11:30 AM until 10:00 PM and is one of the best spots to enjoy those fall afternoon sunsets. The Pointe offers lunch and dinner, as well as an extensive beer and wine list. Make sure to visit their website and like their Facebook page as The Pointe will be featuring a brand-new menu soon!
