No one answers phone or radio, no staff at dock, locked bathrooms, showers at a separate location and the code we were given didn’t work. To top it off, charter boat next to us working all weekend with sanders, compressor, grinder... unbelievable racket plus dust. Do. Not. Stay. Here.

When I called on vhf 9 I got no answer. I called the phone number asking for specifics on location and picking up the mooring. The woman chewed me out for not listening to the message and using Dockwa. I told her we did- and were now there for our mooring. I was told to pick up whichever we wanted, after I figured out where they were. No info given to us on barroom codes. No info as to where we could park our dinghy. (There is no launch). Follow up email with details on the area (restaurants and things to do) came the next morning -an hour before we were leaving Very poorly managed.

There isn't much to this marina, it's not even really a full marina. It is the City's Waterfront Park that also has dockage available. They have showers and laundry for those that need it. What makes this marina so attractive is the cost and direct access to downtown New London. You only have to walk a few hundred meters to get to the best dining selections New London has to offer, including Tony D's if you don't mind walking just a half of a mile. I do disagree with the 2 star review presented because 1) all the moorings have pendants, 2) it's not a full service marina, it's docks and mooring balls, Showers and Laundry. That's it, and it's really really inexpensive.

Lots of moorings, very few with Pendants. Ones with Pendants very close to shore, unclear if safe for 6ft draft. No dock master on Saturday, phone went to answering service. Supposedly there are showers/heads but without dock master/welcome package or pre-arrival email unclear where they were or if we were expected to share with public. If you like train whistles you will love this mooring field, if not you might want to avoid.
