One of the most unique marinas in NY. A must visit if passing through. This Harbor is a man made cut lagoon off the Mohawk River. The Marina itself doesn’t offer many amenities itself but that’s not what this place is a about. The surrounding grounds are amazing. Walking distance to Rivers casino with its shops and restaurants, short shuttle bus available (or walk) to downtown Schenectady and the countless restaurants, theatre and nightlife. Druthers brewery overlooks the Marina with outdoor seating. Enjoy the summer Concerts in the park right from your slip. Brand new docks and facilities, clean grounds with walking paths along the River. Hotels at the casino and a short few minute walk away. A place to see and be seen.

We had a great time on the canal, it was our first time. Your harbor was very easy to access and maneuver, as well as clean & safe and a very short walk to our hotel (court yard Marriott). Great layout. We look forward to it again in the spring.

Marina Response:
Thank you for the effort to let us know how your experience was. I’m glad you had as much fun as you did, it is exactly what we are striving to provide. We can’t wait to welcome you back next year as a regular. The place is even more electric during the heart of the season. See you next year!!!

Loved it here! Arrived for harbor fest concert in early afternoon. Dock attendant was right there and very helpful. Lots to do with the restaurants and casino. Clean bathrooms, no showers yet - hope that comes soon. Very well lit and felt safe. (make sure you have canvass covers or blinds for windows as it will light up entire boat cabin) Walked to Skyport diner for an awesome breakfast next morning, just over Freeman's bridge. Will come back!

This is going to be a great facility once everything is completed. The only thing lacking is bath, shower and laundry. Druthers restaurant is fantastic.

This place is going to be very good. They just need to finish it. Biggest missing item is shower room. Next is pump out, then fuel. Casino with a half dozen restaurants is across the street, about 500 or 600 yards. A restaurant called Druthers is right next door. We didn’t partake but saw that it was very crowded on a Monday night. Very tight entrance but not an issue unless there is a lot of wind. Easy docking once inside.

Dock hands were GREAT! Really need showers and pool, especially when staying more than a day. There is a pool but boaters can’t use it. Casino was great (even though we didn’t win) concerts were great and we enjoyed local brewery on site along with wine/tapas Nice visit but definitely not a five star YET, has potential - needs a boaters touch

Great location for the fireworks for July 4. The team here always happy to help you dock, tie and hook up. There needs to be an arrangement made with the facility for bathroom/shower access. There is a portable bathroom unit on site, o showers, and very few marinas I know of don’t offer these facilities.

This marina has the potential to be an excellent facility. The staff was friendly efficient and professional. Follow the private channel bouys ( plenty of water, but tight turn) . The docks are brand new and first class. Lots of amenities close by . The WiFi was iffy ( new hardware is supposed to be installed ????) This location did not have a pump out capability ( at least , I couldn’t find one) . I would definitely stop here again.

Could use a few more amenities. No showers, no grills. On the plus side, staff are extremely helpful, and the casino is right there with numerous restaurants.
