About Choto Marina

Stephen Temple, General Manager of Choto Marina

Please join us in welcoming Stephen Temple back home to Choto Marina! We are proud to have Stephen as a part of the Anchor South family as the new general manager of Choto Marina. His commitment to excellence and customer service is unparalleled.

Stephen started out at Choto in the summer of 2004 as a dock hand and “worked his way up” to driving the forklift by the following summer. After a few years of driving the fork lift, he hired a new driver and acted as the assistant manager in 2009. In May of 2009, Stephen enlisted and went to basic training at Ft. Benning for Infantry and Airborne school in late July. He was stationed in Alaska from early 2010 until December 2013. Stephen went to serve in Afghanistan in Dec. 2011 and came back home in October 2012. He now lives in West Knoxville with his wife, Heidi and his 4 year old daughter, Kate.

Stephen’s favorite part about being back at Choto is being able to interact with all of the guests and tenants while they are doing what they love to do: just showing up relaxed and ready to have a great time on the lake. Stephen is passionate about creating the most enjoyable, memorable experience possible on Lake Loudon.

Make sure to give Stephen a warm Choto welcome on your next visit to Choto Marina. We look forward to seeing you on the lake!
