Reviews for Blue Springs Marina
Wet Blue Day, 2015-12-01
Captain: , Atlanta (63)

Came into Blue Springs on the way back to Chattanooga in the rain for fuel and an overnight. No one came out to meet us or help with lines. When I went in to the marina office to follow up on my reservation, the owner actually came out to pump my fuel. Gave us a covered slip for the night for the normal transient fee.

Great stop on way to Knoxville, 2015-10-14
Captain: , Portsmouth, VA (430)

One night stop, had all we needed, assistance in docking, good rate, power, water, wi-fi and a quiet night. Very convenient on the way to Knoxville.

Nothing working, except for hot showers, 2015-03-20
Captain: , Knoxville, TN (30)

Diesel pumps were down, pump out was down, and no hose on the water faucet, so I didn't spend any money for the nice shower.

Friendly people, 2014-10-02

We launched our 23ft cabin cruiser from here and stayed overnight to ready for the cruise. Larry, one of the owners is very knowledgeable of the river and knows the good spots to anchor. We left our car and stored our trailer there for a very resonable fee. Womens showers have to have a key and were clean. Resturant on premises and marine store. Gas was $3.99pg

It was pump your own gas when I visited, but I like to pump my own anyway. A sign indicating pump-then-pay would save customers a walk. Persons staffing counter in marina store cited school being in session for lack of help. Marina store has a better than average stock of parts and supplies.

Great Marina, 2013-06-01
Captain: , Gold Point Marina, Chattanooga, TN (111)

Watts Bar is a beautiful lake and this is the best marina you will find. Great service department with knowledgable staff. Marina owner and family are very helpful and the restaurant (seasonal hours; open most weekends) makes a mean burger.

Beautiful, Protected, Excellent Management, 2012-02-15
Captain: , Kemah, TX (30)

Wonderful marina, boatyard, & ship store... Bargain pricing and the Owner dotes on boaters including loaner vehicle to reprovision.

Nice place but staff uninterested, 2011-12-11
Captain: , Earth (561)

I agree with the other reviews about the staff, the boat yard guys are great, but the office staff is lacking. I also saw facebook on the office computer behind the cash register.

Resturaunt has reasonable food.

well stocked ships store, nice transient dock.

Ok, but staff not very interested, 2011-07-09
Captain: , North Palm Beach, FL (539)

Good transient dock close to fuel dock and rustic restaurant. $1 per foot with power. Surprisingly well stocked marine store. Staff seemed more interested in viewing Facebook on business computer than helping customers. WIFI available but all four usernames they provided did not work. It is in a beautiful area abut a mile off the main river.

Good Recovery, 2011-03-01
Captain: , Soddy Daisy, Tn. (80)

Reservation botched, owner's daughter ill prepared and uninterested. The rest of the marina was terrific. Very good marks to the restaurant (dinner & breakfast), Ship's store very accomodating and the rest of the support staff could not do enough to make things right. Would recommend.

Best Food on this side of Watts Bar, 2010-10-11
Captain: , Tellico Marina, Tellico Lake TN (62)

Best resteraunt on this part of the River/Lake. Had a great time!
Gas with a great attendant as well. The owner had his boat docked here this trip. Great looking vessel.

Blue Springs Septebmer 2009, 2010-03-16
Captain: , Wallhamn, Sweden (88)

Good stopover. We were put in a covered slip rather than the transient slips by the fuel dock and were pretty well sheltered on a windy night. Well equipped ships stores, I found an impeller for the genset. The marina is close to the road so some road noise, but it's not a major highway. Friendly folks around the marina, we enjoyed some wine and dinner aboard the neighbors Sea Ray.

Blue Springs excellent Marina in Watts Bar Lake, 2009-10-19
Captain: , Gulf Breeze, Fl (6909)

Entry is into the Cane Creek LDB opposite Green Dayboard 547.5 there is 30+ at normal pool stay in the middle of the entry.
You won't see the marina until you are in thru the entry. There is a faded pink restaurant sign at theleft side of the entrance to Cane Creek. The Marina Sign mentioned in Fred Myer's guide is missing from the entrance. courtsey car, $2.00 load (was and dry both) laundry bathrooms showers water, internet is weak but doable with Verizon. Restuarant, ship store and a good maintence yard. .75 cents a foot transient dockage. Diesel and gas available and pumpout. Diesel was $2.39.9 on 10-19-09. Nice place.
