Reviews for Applegate Cove Marina
Facilities Lacking, 2016-12-09
Captain: , Wilmington, NC (415)

The livaboards are a wealth of information, friendly and helpful. The staff try to do right but the owners are disinterested in putting in time or money so facilities are lacking. At one point we needed to pump waste out but were unable for to do so for 3 weeks because the pump didn't work. We ended up purchasing a small pump to get it done and the office manager deducted it from our fees. This is a beautiful location: quiet, forested area, lots of wildlife. Its unfortunate the owners of this marina have chosen to let it rot.

Nice family owned marina, 2013-11-25
Captain: , Heber Springs, AR (146)

Very friendly staff. Covered docks available. Gas and diesel. Only marina I have ever stayed in that does not have a sink in the mens bathroom. That's right. There is a urinal, toilet and shower but no sink. Never has been one.

No food within walking distance.

Stopped again in Nov 2013 and purchased diesel fuel. People still very friendly and helpful, Well equipped ship store on site.

Our Longest Stay, 2011-09-04
Captain: , amarillo (20)

I have had a slip for my boat here on two different occasions.I have always been treated very nice and would like to return sometime.The owners have changed since I was there last,but there was alot of nice people willing to give a hand or help out anyway they could,I don't think that would change.The marina slips were in good shape,most of them were covered.The restroom was old, and in need of alot of cleaning and up dating.The two fellows that worked in the repair ficility were very professional and did very nice work.I live in Amarillo Texas and this is the closest navigable port to Amarillo.You can put in here and go all the way to the gulf of Mexico.The Arkansas river has very limited facilities for boaters,this was the nicest we were in.

Home for a while, 2007-12-15
Captain: , Hite, Utah (15668)

The boat was here for about two years while it was converted from a bar to a liveaboard. We lived aboard for nearly a year and a half while working on it. All of the people here were extremely friendly and helpful.
