Austin Cameron- Managing Owner

Hi, my name is Austin Cameron and I am the owner of Bluff Creek Marina. Having loved lakes and boating as a kid, it’s always been my dream to own a marina. My first marina purchase was VIP Marina on Lake Travis in November of 2009. As a new owner, learning the marina business was a job that I took very seriously. My belief is the best way to learn a business is to work side by side with my employees and understand every aspect. So for two years at VIP, I jumped in with both feet and did everything from pumping gas to handling the financials. I fell in love with the marina business and decided to pursue more opportunities in the marina industry. So, in August of 2012 I purchased my second marina here at beautiful PK Lake, which is our lovely Bluff Creek Marina.

With my experience running successful businesses in the state Texas, I honestly felt that this marina had the potential to become a world-class marina. That’s why I’ve spent so much of my own hard-earned money renovating the place and turning it into a truly amazing marina for truly amazing guests. I’ve always found in my other business dealings that if you treat people right, they’ll come back and bring their friends. Our goal at Bluff Creek is to be the “Best Marina on PK Lake” and I believe we are attaining this goal one project at a time. We have completed many renovations at the marina and will have a new ship store on the water in the summer of 2015. These projects not only give our customers the best facilities on the lake, but also show everyone that BCM will live up to the expectation of being the “Best Marina on PK Lake”.

Here at Bluff Creek, we promote a great sense of community on the docks and everyone knows everyone else here by name. We are all neighbors at BCM Marina, and that sense of community more than anything else brings a smile to my face because that was the way I was raised. To me, this marina is more than just the parts and people. It’s about the connections and relationships between the people, and even between the people and our wonderful lake.

I hope when you visit Bluff Creek Marina, you will not only feel welcomed but you will leave knowing that you have a family here. We want you to know our marina is “where the city ends and the fun begins”, so when you come be ready for an experience of a lifetime. We hope to see you soon!
