Reviews for Bay Springs Marina
Good Marina, 2017-09-13
Captain: , Johns Creek Georgia (180)

This would be a five star marina if it were close to anything. We stayed on the face dock for one night the first week in September and had a good experience. The property itself is in excellent condition and the people are very friendly. But it is a 20+ minute ride in the courtesy car to have dinner or shop.

Nice clean marina, 2017-05-15
Captain: , Grand Rivers, Ky (2206)

Friendly staff and courtesy car makes this a place to provision if needed. They have a motor oil recycle tank. No towns are close to the marina, about a 30 min drive to Walmart.

Great place to stage for an early lock thru, 2016-12-05
Captain: , Bedford, NH (775)

Decided to stay here after getting stuck behind a tow that would keep us from reaching our original destination. Very nice and helpful staff. Fueled up and then went to a covered slip. Met up with 5 other boats going through the lock the next morning. A live aboard couple next to us was also helpful. They called the lock for us that evening and arranged for us to lock through at 7am. Unfortunately a tow showed up and we had to wait anyway. Very nice marina. Nothing near by but they do have a courtesy car. No Verizon cell service for miles around. Careful walking the dog. Ours got painful burrs in his feet along the path to the docks. Didn't use the facilities so can't comment on those.

Consistently Consistent , 2016-11-25
Captain: , Somerville, TN (201)

Your can always count on a clean and comfortable stop at Bay Springs.

We got there on Thanksgiving Day and we tied up alongside the newest dock.

In the past we would have used a covered slip but the weather was nice so we opted to enjoy the sunshine!?

Friendly marina, easy access with plenty of water. Great dog walking area.

A good stop, 2015-11-19
Captain: , Naples Florida (246)

Easy access - plenty water in channel - friendly helpful staff - courtesy car - will put you in a covered slip if you assure them of your height - this was helpful in this week's storm and 70mph winds

Great spot to catch an early lock through, 2015-11-16
Captain: , Essex, CT (1675)

Nice marina -- easy in and out. Good docks and very friendly owners. Were met at the dock right away. Bathrooms and laundry were just ok -- but the overall marina was pleasant.

A bit pricy, 2015-11-09
Captain: , Green Cove Springs, FL (728)

At $1.25 a foot plus tax it's a bit more than the going rate for the area. No complaints on the marina in general, a good stop for one night. Power, water and electric were all good as well as the docks.

Small, but nice, 2014-11-30
Captain: , Aurora, KY (146)

Bay Springs Marina is a nice little marina with friendly staff in a very quiet setting. Lots of migrating birds to watch this time of year, no ugly houses ruining the view of the surrounding shoreline. very close to the Dam and a good stopover point when coming down from Pickwick.

Good place to come before or after the locks, 2014-10-29
Captain: , Nowhere,OK (1314)

Stayed one night 10/29. Warm reception, got to use the marina car to go to the Lock Visitor Center. Free washer, $1 to dry is a deal.

Good Wifi, very happy with a chance to plug into Highspeed internet.

Bonus is that since they are not near a town, there is very little light polution, we are looking at a sky full of stars.

Nice quiet marin, 2014-10-08
Captain: , Venice, Fl. (949)

Stopped in the night of 10-6. Met by the owners daughter who was one of the most polite people we have met. Covered slips with cable tv and internet. Clean restrooms.

Great marina, 2014-08-30
Captain: , Winter Garden, Fl (2391)

We stopped in for a night to meet up with some friends on an RV and also to replace a leaky water pump on one of the engines. The staff was great - even helped me get the pulley off of the pump. Everyone we met was friendly - staff and local boat owners. We used the courtesy van to go in to town for groceries - the Piggly Wiggly and the ACE hardware are in the SAME building! We will definitely come back's the only marina on the lake, but very reasonable.

battery service, 2014-05-03
Captain: , Iuka ms (131)

Had a large 8d battery blow up. They didn't have in stock but drove 40 miles one way and back to get us back on the water

A Wonderful Marina, 2014-04-04
Captain: , Jamaica Beach, TX (180)

We had a wonderful experience at Bay Springs. The staff was friendly and very helpful. They had a courtesy car they allowed us to take into down for supper. The shower, and laundry facilities were excellent.

Very good people, 2013-10-14
Captain: , Trenton ON (668)

We needed to do laundry so they allowed us to tie to their transient dock for the day for free!!! We picked up a few parts here too so it was a lucky stop for us. The only negative is the wifi. For $9 something I had iffy wifi.but the folks are friendly , helpful and kind. Highly recommended.

Houseboat Haven, minimal liveaboards, 2013-09-19
Captain: , Pinnacle, NC, USA (1422)

Not atransient haven but fine, clean facilities. MOONSHINE allocated the outermost empty slip, 22' wide 50-60 long that would have accomodated 4 of her. Handy lay over just before or after the first three locks on the Tenn-Tom's upper end. No restaurant, poor veizon connection, hence the offer of Wi-Fi for a fee if you have a Pay-Pall account.

OK spot for a night, 2012-11-12
Captain: , Sarnia, ON (330)

Limited transiet space. Pay as you go internet. No cable. Limited Verizon signal. Washroom facility a long walk up. Friendly staff. No discounts. $1.25/night

Bay Springs Marina, 2012-10-30
Captain: , Wickford, RI (1637)

Good spot to stage for your trip down the TennTom (or to recover from your trip up). NIce docks, can have covered if yo wish. Free washing machine, pay dryer, courtesy car, repairs, etc.
Marina is a long way from shopping, but it is a very plesant drive down the Natchez Trace to Tupelo and all kinds of shopping.

good solid docks, 2012-10-08
Captain: , Mesa AZ (1609)

If satellite needed, docking will be difficult. Most docks are undercover. But cable repair is to be completed soon. Accommodating staff. Clean facilities. Good location.

Nice Quiet Marina, 2012-10-08
Captain: , Savannah GA (82)

Nice full service marina with good facilities, well stocked ship's store, captain's lounge and laundry. Freindly and knowledgeable staff. Negative comments are internet is $9.50 for two days and cell service is non-existent. Free TV if you have a direct tv converter.

Great stay, 2012-07-16
Captain: , charleston (831)

Great stay at this marina. Courteous staff, courtesy car, and good facilites.

Courteous stop-over, 2012-02-06
Captain: , Marietta, GA (260)

Very courteous and allowed us to get in a covered slip to ride out a bad storm. Laundry available. Power and water.

Close to Whitten Lock, 2011-11-08
Captain: , Mystic, CT (382)

Quiet, clean marina. Staff very helpful. Courtesy ar is an 8 passenger mini van. Restrooms are clean, laundry available on site.

Convenient Stop to stage run thru Locks, 2011-11-03
Captain: , Gulf Breeze, Fl (6909)

Easy into with deep water (low pool saw >25' true water depth to dock. Lock is within sight of the Lock. Many adjacent good anchorages but if you want to do laundry before running south or waiting out weather at a dock this is the only game in town. And is a nice spot...however if only it had better cell service.

Very Nice Marina, 2011-10-29
Captain: , Fort Myers, FL (141)

You will feel safe and secure here. Easy access and well protected and nice facilify.

A lucky find, 2011-09-22
Captain: , Niceville FL (10)

Full service marina with very helpful and knowledgeable staff. Provided towing service late on a holiday weekend Saturday and completed the necessary repairs. Provided a loaner car and helpful directions for supply runs. Facility is very nice with good showers and laundry. Isolated with no wi-fi or cable and limited cell coverage. Well worth a stopover.

Good marina, 2008-07-10
Captain: , Jacksonville, FL (822)

People very helpful, also the folks are very friendly. If you have time try a night anchored in the Five-Fingers area. You will be richly rewarded.

nice marina, 2007-09-25
Captain: , Key Largo (5457)

isolated, not near anything, but they do offer a loaner car. THey no longer pull boats here, floating docks , reasonalble rates.
