Sampson State Park Marina, located in Romulus, NY, on the east shore of Seneca Lake, had been diminishing overtime and had not had an update in well over 20 years—boaters on Seneca Lake needed a spot to dock, fuel up their watercrafts, and use as a seasonal home.  Sessler Wrecking took on the project of redeveloping the marina, as well as constructing a new campground, establishing the grounds as Seneca Lake Resorts — the Finger Lakes’ premier family, boating, and camping resort destination.

Our Sessler crew dewatered the entire 100-slip marina and dredged the basin while removing over 12,000 yards of sediment to be able to reconfigure the marina and launch ramp.  Once the marina was dewatered and dredged, our team removed all the deteriorating docks and dock pilings, re-graded the entire marina basin to ensure consistent boating depth, and performed all the necessary excavation and site work surrounding the marina.  Our team also re-drove new sturdy steel dock pilings with our specialized excavator attachments.

We worked with respected marine construction contractors to build and install new larger docks and add a state-of-the-art tieback system to reinforce the failing perimeter walls.

Our Sessler crew then installed a brand-new perimeter wall to increase strength and visual appeal to the existing wall and added multiple wave attenuation devices including an entrance way consisting of steel sheeting and over 1,000 ton of boulders.  As for the surrounding portion of the marina slips itself, we designed and added two new concrete launch ramps to allow for larger boats and offers the patrons an easily accessible area to load and unload their watercrafts.

All water and electric utilities were replaced and new roads and sidewalks were designed to create an influx of green grassy areas for patrons.  A fuel dock and pump out station was added, as well as a brand-new convenient store with boating and camping necessities.

In addition to the marina development, Sessler created brand new roadways and sites for new, modernized cabins and 60’ full-hookup seasonal RV sites while re-grading the existing land to improve the drainage and offer a safer, more comfortable environment for guests.

We have the experience to solve your marine services challenges.
