Reviews for Buchanan Resort
Great place for fishermen and day trippers, 2012-10-17
Captain: , Eagle Creek, Kentucky Lake (88)

Buchanan Resort Marina is set up to handle fishermen and all types of smaller recreatonal boats/pontoons. The marina is not set up to handle larger cruisers (it does not sell diesel fuel.) The chief mechanic is very competent in repairs of (gasoline) OBs, I/Os and jert skis, regardless of the brand. The marina restaurant (The Oak Tree Grill) is a good place for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Note: Marina dock open year around, services and restaurant closed late fall to early spring.
