NICE FUN PLACE, 2016-08-08
Captain: , CLIFTON,TENN (20)

Just passing through wound up staying 3 nights, was leaving and found out I had a bad raw water impeller. Mechanic did a great job at a very fair price,he was really busy on the week end but worked us in and got it done in a reasonable amount of time. Thanks Terry and all of Buzzard Rock Crew, will go back some day, fun place....B.B. & Judy......

Good fall stop when river is low, 2014-11-10
Captain: , Athens, AL (641)

Early November, we arrived late and left early, so all we needed was dockage for the night. They had plenty of water (never saw less than 7 feet) and only charged $28 for the night. Not much going on but appeared to be a nice location. Some of the other marinas in the area are a couple of miles off of the main channel with "iffy" water at low pool. Another boat we communicated with on the TN had just spent 3 weeks in the shop after hitting a stump getting in to The Lake Barkley State Park marina.

Great Marina!!, 2014-10-09
Captain: , Winter Garden, Fl (2391)

You can't beat the rates, the place is totally protected, the have all the necessities - courtesy car, laundry, bar, restaurant, etc. This is a very clean, well run marina. The staff is attentive, the docks are very wide floating concrete and all the power/water hookups are funtional and in good repair. This is a great place to stop...even if you have to go a little out of your way!

Very nice marina, 2012-11-07

I left my boat here for about a month, all was fine when I got back. Good depth getting in. Helpful staff. D.W. who works here does great detailing, and he delivered my truck to Pickwick for me at a reasonablre charge.

We stayed here foe a year after moving our boat from Missouri , this is a good marina with a great staff from the owner to the dock boy. Sometimes the Friday & Saturday bands leave alot of room for improvment is's fun to watch all the boast migrate into the marina. Also a really great Mechanic, Thanks Dale.

Excellent all around, 2012-07-04
Captain: , MinneapolisSt. Paul, MN (11)

Took a trailer boat trip and launched there in Sept 2011. The owner was very nice, very accomodating. He let me store the vehicle and trailer in a secure area out of the main marina traffic. I stayed in an open slip and a covered slip for several nights as I used Buzzard Rock for a "home base" and traveled up the entire Cumberland River, came back, and then did 300 miles of the Tennessee River as well as some of teh Ohio. All employees very helpful and pleasant. Excellent shower and bathroom facilities and laundry. The restaurant had a great breakfast and the bar had live music on two of the weekend nights I was there. My trip was 23 nights on the boat, 4 or 5 at Buzzard Rock as I came and went on my trip. I will absolutely go back. I highly recommend it.

One of the best!, 2010-10-19
Captain: , baltimore md (644)

We stayed a week in early 10/10. Great people on the staff, very nice restaurant/bar with a band on the weekends. The showers/laundry very clean. They have a nice courtesy car and the dockage rates are very resonable. The whole staff seemed glad to be working there. It is located only about 8 miles up the Cumberland river. Very protected marina with no wakes. You can't go wrong here.

Captain: , Eddyville, KY (282)

Good Food and nice restaurant, dining inside and out. Crowded on Wkends so service can be slow. Clean in and out, docks and facilities. Easy acces to restaurant as it is located right next to docks. Dock hands always helpful.

Excellent Service and Clean Restrooms, 2009-05-26
