Excellent, friendly and responsive dock handling and support staff. Facility is in excellent shape, with multiple restaurants in walking distance. Good bathrooms and showers. Quiet marina with no wake. Very pleasant evening. We look forward to returning soon!

I can only amplify what many others have already stated: Marina owner and dock master Henry is the BEST! Excellent and clear arrival and docking instructions along with expert line handling were much appreciated on our windy day. He provided us a personal overview of the facilities and town, along with dinner recommendations (Spoon River!). Courtesy golf carts were a big hit with our group of four, and a fun and easy way to see the town. Free laundry and nice showers. Henry called and located some specialized power steering fluid that I needed and had it delivered right to the dock. He also located a diver to inspect our props. He is a passionate mariner who enjoys helping customers in all possible ways—we will make a special effort to return here whenever possible!

Best arrival communications and docking instructions we have yet experienced. Excellent dock hand, who also provided great overview of the area and recommendations for dinner. Excellent bathrooms and shower (about a 5 min walk). New docks and good infrastructure. This is a top notch marina.

Marina Response:
Thank you so much for docking at Waterside Marina and for the great review!

We arrived just after 5pm. Marina did not answer the VHF or the phone and there was no dockhand to assist. Docks are quite old and narrow. We received no orientation to the facility or area, and did not see or find any of the advertised amenities (no restaurant, no laundry, no ice, no wifi password). Marina is not near anything of interest that we could see. A grocery store is 1.5 miles away via Uber. I would stay here only if you have no other options.
