About Us

Situated along the west shores of Lake Clarke in York County south central Pennsylvania, Long Level Marina, Inc. provides hassle free boating to nearly 500 storage customers. Long Level Marina works to ensure safe, recreational boating for more than sixty mooring customers, over 400 dry storage customers, and thousands of other boaters in this fresh water haven along the Susquehanna River.

Opened in the 1930’s as Welsh’s Boat Yard, the facility sold and stored Chris Craft wooden boats. In 1960, it became what is now known as Long Level Marina. When Dick Hickman purchased the marina in December of 1989, he became its 5th owner and incorporated it. Just as the boating industry made the transition from wood to fiberglass, Long Level Marina has made the necessary changes from the antiquated to the updated.

Lake Clarke

A great place to enjoy life is on Lake Clarke. The lake is in Lancaster County with York County on the west shore line. Lake Clarke was formed in 1931 when the Safe Harbor Dam was built on the Susquehanna River. The dam, in addition to storing water for hydroelectric-generating plant, created an 11.5 square-mile lake that over the years has developed into one of Pennsylvania’s prime recreation areas, especially for water-sports enthusiasts. Each year, thousands of visitors to Lake Clarke enjoy sailing, water skiing, fishing, waterfowl and large and small game hunting, hiking, and picnicking. And there are many who come to the area just to appreciate its beauty.

In addition to Long Level Marina, Inc and Safe Harbor’s boat-access areas, Susquehanna Yacht Club, Lake Clarke Rescue Inc., the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary, and two private marinas are located on the York County side of the lake. Daily information about conditions on Lake Clarke, such as lake elevations, river flow, water temperatures, fishing and ice conditions, emergency water-level drawdowns, and activities at nearby recreation areas is available by calling the following toll-free number : 1-800-692-6328.
