Nice marina, we stayed two nights. Jim the DockMaster was great, very friendly and helpful. Good water pressure and electric. Nice bathrooms. Easy approach with floating docks. The town was nice, great restaurants and the museum was very interesting!

Side tie to fixed dock was no problem. Good, clean bathroom and showers. Close to several nice restaurants and shops on the waterfront. And far enough away from the overhead bridge that it wasn't too noisy. Jim is the dockmaster and provided great service!

Jim, the Dockmaster was EXCELLENT! He went out of his way to advise us about the currents, tides, and how best to tie up. He even telephoned us when we were about an hour away to give us a heads up about some logs floating in the river. The facilities were in good shape. Bathrooms and showers clean and nice. BEST wi fi we have ever had at a marina! And the town of Kingston was very pretty and very walkable. We ended up staying 2 extra nights because we liked it so much. 10 stars for Jim, his staff, and the marina.

Dockmaster Jim was very helpful and accommodating at our arrival, bathroom and shower facilities are very modern and clean. Always lots of interesting activities going on on their waterfront, and in the museum, so is a great place for boaters to relax and enjoy, and is only a short walk to great restaurants.

This is the third time this year that we docked here. Each time Jim,dock master, has been absolutely wonderful. He picks up phone immediately and calls back if there is a problem on the creek. Would not want to dock at any other marina on the creek. Docks are clean and easy on-off from boat. Great marina! Ina& Don on Take It E-Sea

Beautiful area, close to restaurants. Very quaint, museum and boat building shop on site. The staff was helpful and make an extra effort to make you feel comfortable. Just wish docks were more secure at night. Could use more lighting and maybe cameras at night since the docs are very open to the public. The short walk to the bathrooms has stones and is not private or well lit. The men’s and women’s bathrooms (entry by keypad) both have a single shower each and overall the facilities are adequate.

Marina Response:
Thank you for your review, Douglas. Your suggestions are appreciated. We are in the process of setting up more cameras and adding lighting to the walkway to the bathrooms. We are always open to suggestions on how to make everyone's stay here enjoyable and safe. Sincerely, Liz Feser Finance and Operations Manager

To start, I don't give five stars to marinas with out pools. That being said: the booking process was easy. The dockmaster helpful; the town had charm and there were good restaurants close by. We are 55' trawler with single screw. We got in with help at floor, left at slack without help, and enjoyed our stay. The museum is definetly worth it.

Many many thanks to Jim for making our visit so enjoyable. He called us to let us know that a cancellation occurred leaving a place for us on Saturday night.

What a lovely town with so many restaurants and cafes to chose from within a 5 minute walk. There are several museums in the town also (and of course the maritime museum admission comes free with the docking). There are also some nice trails (especially to the NE of the town on the old rail lines). Only negative is that there isn't a good grocery store in easy walking distance (but you can get a cab to the supermarkets just out of town)

Another enjoyable visit, our second. The tie-along-side floating pier is solid, well-maintained. The new restroom in the boat shop is available 24/7; current shower is "rustic" but clean, roomy (and a new shower will be on-line soon). Museum is a treasure! Bus makes uptown "Stockade" area easily accessible; lots of history there. Also a good base from which to rent a car to visit other nearby attractions like Hyde Park mansions.

Museum is worth a visit during your stay - the models are amazing. Part of facility is under construction and will vastly improve shoreside restrooms and showers. This will upgrade our rating.

50A receptacle was too worn to hold the plug, so had to make do with a single 30A. Stubby posts instead of cleats on floating docks are difficult to use for tall boats - line angle risks pulling line up and off. Men's shower room could use an update. Otherwise, perfect location in town, and lots of interesting things to see in close proximity. Friendly staff.
