“Ohana” Means Family

Harris Family

Our childhood days were filled with naps, water sports, snow sports, and upkeep of our cabin.  We at Ohana Marina strive to be a place for families to start and continue their Big Lake lifestyles.

Big Lake Roots

Jerry grew up on Big Lake being towed by his spitfire mother, Mona Harris.  As one of the first skiing families in the area, sometimes you had to get creative. He was known to try out tables and to practice for barefoot skiing he fashioned his own skis from wood and tires.
Growing up on Flat Lake, learning to ski was a right of passage in our family.

If you can dream it, let’s make it happen

“The world needs dreamers, and the world needs doers. But above all, the world need dreamers WHO DO.”

-Sarah Ban Breathnach

Jerry and Kathy have been married for over 40 years. They have raised a family, worked together, had many ups and downs in this life, and now enjoy spending time with the grandkids when they are able.
