This marina is in a very confined area. There is very little room to maneuver. The floating docks are only 20 ft long, so larger boats need to be creative in their use of docklines. The floating docks are also low and loud.

Reviews for Canal Landing Marina
Great for Us Little Boats! Not so Good for Big Boats..., 2017-08-06
Captain: , Fall City - Birch Bay, WA (217)

We arrived here today, 6/23/17, and will stay two more nights. The floating docks easily accommodate our 25 foot boat. The pedestals on the walkway above the docks have 30 amp power and water, and the power and water both work. Free moorage, free power, free water, free restrooms and showers - what's not to love, if your boat can fit in here?

NOTE: Contrary to prior reviews, the restroom/shower key is NOT "hidden under the trash can"! You now go to Lock O-3 and get it from (and return it to) the lock master.

A Tight Fit, 2016-05-23
Captain: , Britt, Ontario (711)

It is tight to get in with mast on deck (40') but doable. The first dock has broken cleats. There is no water on the docks but there is washrooms and shower - lockmaster can provide a key.

Free mooring! with almost all the utilities, 2015-07-21
Captain: , Vaudreuil-sur-le-lac (145)

This is a close spot to manoeuvre the boat in windy condition, 20 feet%u2019s slips, but this is ok; you got electricity, head & shower. You are within a walking distance of groceries, farmer's market, and restaurants.

Too tight for us, 2014-07-08
Captain: , Sandusky, Ohio (392)

Having read from others about making it in, we decided to give it a shot. When we got there, the first slip had been taken by a boat significantly longer than the dock. We didn't think our 36 feet would fit, so passed it by. My hat's off to those who can get in and out of here.

Big enough, 2014-07-06
Captain: , Massapequa,NY (1176)

We're 41 ft LOA & we're able to fit, but it was tight maneuvering. Free floating dock with 30 amp electric. Water not working. 2 nice restaurants close by. Nice grounds to walk the dog.

only for 34 and smaller boats, 2013-03-27
Captain: , Clayton, NY (655)

We took our MT 34 in here but it was pretty calm. TIght space. WE now have a 42 GB and there is one space at the entrance to the harbor that we may try for this year. There are restaurants and stores nearby and hte lock masters have been extrenmely friendly

Who can argue with "Free?"!, 2012-10-11
Captain: , Rochester, NY (493)

For a free dock, this is really a pretty nice place. It looks tight, but we nuzzled our 36-footer in without much fuss.

We had a fine dinner in the restaurant just overlooking the docks.

Next morniing we walked over the bridge to Dunkin' Donuts for a fine start to the day!

Sure, it could use "some love" but honestly, it was clean and convienent - and who can argue with "Free?"!!

Place needs some love., 2012-08-19
Captain: , Jacksonville Fl (1550)

We stayed here doing the loop in 2005 and looked forward to a return visit this year. What a disappointment, water was filthy and had several dead fish floating in the scum and muck. The "welcome" building was all locked up including bathrooms. We were happy to move on and found the "Bridge House" stop at Phoneix to be a much better place to stop.

Small boats only, 2012-07-06
Captain: , Mystic (909)

Max would be 34 ft imo. I entered and tried to dock my 40 albin. not enough room. Scummy water too, and no air. We stayed on the wall instead and it was quite pleasant.

The docks are short but..., 2012-06-13
Captain: , Illinois (2562)

doable. Free water and electricity. The showers and restrooms were clean. Groceries nearby as previously reported. A great place to dine at the many opportunities and reprovision. We enjoyed our stop over here and felt very welcomed.

Did Not Moor Here, 2012-06-08
Captain: , punta gorda, fl (1448)

Aluminum floating docks with power and water for free. But the finger piers are very short and the maneuvering room in the semi protected basin was limited. We tied up on the wall just south of these docks and it was fine. Wall is crumbly but you can find good enough places to tie up. Rings mounted on top of wall to attach your lines to. The city is nice. Walking distance to a laundromat, auto parts, and restaurants.

Nice Stop - Right Downtown, 2011-07-09
Captain: , Cleveland (2083)

This is a great small town - aiming to please with free docks, power and water. Shower and restrooms were clean (be sure to pick up a key before 3 pm). Walmart 1.5 miles, Price Chopper is a 15 min walk west across the north bridge. Large pharmacy/convenience store 1 block away. Esther's Breakfast Place 2 blocks - food was good. Bandstand above the docks with music. We also happened to be there for the first annual Art Festival with music, food and vendors.

The docks are quite short (20 ft) and there is not a lot of room to maneuver but with 36', 13' beam it wasn't really an issue backing into the dock. Some of the docks are reserved - they have a sign on the wall behind the docks to let you know which ones.

An under-used resource, 2010-07-26
Captain: , Phoenix,NY (317)

This marina is very under-used. Most times there are only one or two boats. There are many restaurants within walking distance, along with grocery and drug stores.
