My husband and I just bought a pontoon from the marina. The owner, John, and the entire staff were wonderful to work with. They went way beyond our expectations! We would highly recommend them! Thanks for a great experience!! Terry and Nancy Harris
Do you have In & Out Service?
Hey Torch River! Can't wait to come up and spend time with you. Especially pumped about the new boat slips. They are going to make getting in and out so much easier! I came across this and think it is an AWESOME idea. Is it something that either the marina, the hardware, the Torch Lake merchants, Rapid City merchants (or some other group) would consider investing in-- it would be especially great at the sand bar after the fourth of July!

Torch River Marine is located at the very South end of Torch Lake. Just minutes away from the Sand Bar, Local Resorts, Cottages, Campgrounds and Local Restaurants.

What a great place to vacation.
