HENRY CO., Va. -

There's a new, convenient way to fuel up a boat a Philpott Lake without leaving the water. Construction is finished on a new marina in Henry County.

It has 40 boat slips for rent, a floating store with food and fishing supplies, an outdoor eating area, and a fueling station.

Less than 10 boat slips remain available for rent.
The project cost the county $1.3 million. County leaders hope this will boost the lake as a tourist destination.

An open house is this Sunday afternoon from 2 until 4 p.m.
