We love Rondout Yacht Basin. Staff is great. Pool is refreshing. Toni will make you a delicious meal at the cafe. Most of all the people at the basin are the best. Looking forward to visiting again soon.

Had a great Labor Day weekend. Brandon was great! Helpful and always available. The cafe serves good food at reasonable prices. Pool was nice. Bathrooms could use some updating. It's been about 10 years since we were there, but will definitely be back next year!

Excellent service with a personal touch. Rented a slip overnight and stayed in nearby Kingston. Uber's are hard to depend on lately. Marina owner gave us a ride into town and honestly couldn't have been nicer. The marina is on the Round Out Creek about 3/4 of a mile off the Hudson. Good choice to stop for loopers on the way north.

Nice marina and great staff. Wish they had a car available as the town is across the channel away, but to far to walk by land. The Uber ride was 20 dollars one way and about a 10 minute ride.

We made reservations 2 weeks prior. Received confirmation and given slip assignment. Instructions said to hail on 9 (dock hand said they don’t monitor 9 as it says in Dockwa) when arriving couldn’t get them on the phone or the radio. Left message, no call back. Finally after getting in touch, he told us that he didn’t have a slip, for us (at 3:00). Does not live up to their description. Lot of deferred maintenance.

Wonderful place! Tom is so nice and helpful! He obviously cares about his guests! Very accommodating with a great slip, explaining the layout and amenities, plus local knowledge of the surrounding area! I can't say enough good things about the whole atmosphere of that place, which he helps create. Rondout is a charming place to stop, with lots of character. Plenty of things to do too, if you have time to stay awhile? Pleasant!

Donovans is a great place to stop. The staff if very nice and helpful. The regulars are welcoming and the place is clean and nice. We like it as starting point for upstate trips since we trailer our little Albin trawler and they have a great ramp and good parking. And best of all, they have a very nice restaurant on site, Boathouse Grill, with a great patio overlooking the Hudson and nicely prepared food. Don’t miss out on the sweet and hot calamari with the fancy sweet drop fruits.

These people were WONDERFUL. We arrived after a long day of travel on the rough Hudson in incredibly strong, gusty winds in a 36' boat. They helped us wrestle her safely to the dock and managed other arriving boats similarly well. Nash, on the dock, pointed out to us that our dinghy, mounted on the on the stern of the boat, was not supported properly (a support had broken enroute in the rough waters) and immediately helped us get it fixed. The owner, Nick, took my husband to the local Home Depot to get a part needed for the repair and wouldn't accept payment for the ride. Others who keep their boats regularly at the marina stopped by to offer needed muscle or guidance or encouragement. What a wonderful experience! I highly recommend this marina to transients or to anyone else!

The location of this marina is great for visiting in the Kingston area. We rented a car and spent two delightful days visiting the FDR Home and Museum as well as Eleanor Roosevelt’s home at Valkill. The highlight of our trip was having lunch on both days at the Culinary Institute of America at Hyde Park. Rondout Yacht Basin itself is beginning to show its age. The heads and showers were clean but out of date. The piers are in decent shape. Perhaps all the rain we had while here took some shine off the facility. The marina’s web site boasts a dockside cafe but it’s only a small snack stand with an awning covered eating area. To be fair, it was closed the whole time we were there so I can’t comment on the quality or extent of the menu. The most frustrating part of this stay was contacting the marina upon arrival. The DockWa listing and my reservation confirmation both said to contact them on VHF Channel 9. I tried several times but got no response. When I called by phone all I got was an answering machine - but no response to the message I left. When I asked the person who finally met the boat after my second phone call, I was told that they don’t monitor Channel 9, but only Channel 16. I had tried that twice with no response as well. It’s very frustrating to bring a boat into a new port and new marina and not be able to contact anyone ashore until you’re already in sight of the fuel dock.

Owner met us on the dock. Docks are floating and look to be fairly new. Diesel fuel is a lot lower than advertised on Marinas.com. It was $2.30 with Boat US discount. A nice swimming pool, an area for horse shoes, volleyball, etc. a small bar & grill right on the dock. Dock hands were very helpful and friendly. Only thing is no store within walking distance and I didn't see any laundry facilities.
