Block Island is a great destination and Champlins is the only marina with a pool. The new owners have made some changes most noticeable are the grounds but I don’t think for the better. The grills were moved from the walkway leading to the docks which is good idea but should have been moved to the grassy area where there are now picnic tables and some lawn games. Placing the grills all the way at the top of the hill makes carrying food, charcoal etc. cumbersome. The pool is always cold and needs re surfacing. Bathrooms are not very clean with mold on those shower curtains that were present;Many were not. internet was still weak as always although electric seems improved. No more rafting which is good. Dock staff were not as experienced in tying boats properly but pleasant. With the new ownership very overpriced and increasing

Marina Response:
Thank you for staying with us in 2021. Last year the guest rooms received a much needed renovation and we did make some changes to the grounds. While we realize that moving the location of the grills was controversial, there were a number of guests who were happy to see them moved away from the Cafe and the Sugar Shack. We have additional plans for the lawn area next to the pool that will include a covered tent area for regular activities for guests as well special events. Upgrades to the pool area are in the plans, but unfortunately not for 2022. However, cleanliness is always important and as the new GM for 2022, I am committed to making sure that there is a clear improvement there. We hope to see you again this year!

Nice marina close to town. Can be rocky at night and music and noise from crowd can be extremely loud until the early morning hours. Bathrooms are fair.

Nice marina, close to town. Good biking along fairly rural roads. Bathrooms are clean. This marina is buggy and you need to keep your cockpit lights off unless you want to clean up dead bugs.
