Reviews for Clyde Village Dock at Lauraville Landing (Free Dock)
This Town is doing its best effort o welcome transient boaters, 2016-08-20
Captain: , Willsboro Bay Marina (2401)

I agree with all previous comments. This Town is doing its best to accommodate boaters and it is free. We had a good walk to look around the building architecture. We would have hope to use a restaurant or bar with a Wifi. The Library has very good accommodation for Wifi and the Dollar Store is beside the Library.

Great spot to spend the night, 2016-07-16
Captain: , Michigan (190)

This place has water, pump out, 30/20 Amp electric and park setting. We filled up water, so water is working. And no dock, pumpout or electric fees. The food at Brickoven is really, really good and the prices are very affordable. The ambience is first rate. Don't miss this resturant if you stop. We didn't make it to the Museum, but that would have been nice. We had two boats: our 40 with 60 foot mast and a 36 Aft cabin on the Concrete sidewall and there are two floating docks on each end. So I am thinking the concrete wall must be closer to 90 or 100 feet. So there is easily room for 4 good size boats here. You can get provisions at Save-a-lot. This store seems better than most other Save-A-Lots. Meat was quite good.

Nice place, 2015-07-06
Captain: , ellicottville n.y. (209)

We pulled in on 7-6-15 . Nice Quiet place with shelter and tables. Bathrooms only. We did have elec but no water on any of the dock. We did call the town and told them but they never came down to fix it.

One word of caution.., 2014-09-25
Captain: , Huron,OH - Little River, SC (630)

Nice overnight stop. Other reviews accurate. However, if using the water for more than boat washing, watch out for residue in the water. Without a filter, you probably do not want to put this water in your tank

OK stop, but not much here; Lots of trains & wakes, 2014-07-26
Captain: , Annapolis MD (258)

We pulled on to the town dock just after noon on a Saturday as we were making our way east. We tied to the bulkhead, which was a little bit high for our small sailboat, but it was next to the power pedestal. This turned out to be a nearly disastrous mistake, when we were smashed into it by the wake of a boat going by on full plane. We barely managed to save our Bimini bows as the bikes were tossed to the deck and everything below was in a heap on the floor. Luckily a call on the radio got the 2nd boat to slow down before we got hit again. We then moved to the floating dock which was a good thing as more boats went by with large wakes.

There are LOTS of trains going by as well. Very noisy. The town doesn't have much to offer. Lots of vacant buildings. Even the hardware store is closing. We did find some non-ethanol gas at the Fastrac.

New Restrooms at dock, 2014-07-23

This is a very nice place for an overnight stop. Call the number for the Village to get the access code to the new restrooms, phone number is on information board at the dock. The board also has a map of the village. Easy walk to laundry and hardware store. The dock has picnic tables, under cover, and BBQ grills. The pump out is also free.

Nice Stop!, 2014-07-17
Captain: , St. Clair, Michigan (456)

We were going to stop in Baldwinsville but the wall was full so we pressed on. We were hoping that Clyde would have room for us even though the reviews were so, so.
Nobody at the docks when we pulled in so we took the wall and had the 2 - 30 amp outlets we need. Water was good with handles on all the spigots.
Nice park setting to walk the dog and the place is really clean with trash receptacles around.
A men's and women's restroom that were open so we did not need to call for the code.
If we had needed it there is free pump out for the boaters.
Like the other reviews mentioned, there are trains but no whistles so we can sleep.

Quaint and quiet stop, 2014-07-14
Captain: , Sandusky, Ohio (392)

We pulled in for the night here. 4 30 amp outlets with water. Room for two boats on the wall, one more can tie up to floating docks at either end of the wall. Pump out available also. Town is a short walk across the bridge. Lots of character from another era. Several museums, hours vary. Eating and drinking places, VFW, laudromat within a few blocks. Don't miss the Clyde Hardware store about a block north of the bridge. Fantastic selection of items, friendly people. Some train noise from the tracks across the canal, but no whistles or horns. Just a gentle rumble as they go by. Great stop over.

Quiet dock, Great Harbor Host, 2013-09-03
Captain: , Toms River NJ (257)

Limped in to Clyde with a cracked injector line. Capt. Al Baris came to rescue. I had part shipped to his home and his wife dropped it off to the boat. They also left us a car to use for shopping. Great people.

Comfortable stay, 2012-09-11
Captain: , Brewerton NY (20)

Dock for 3 boats. We pluged into 30 amp with no problems. Water spickets have no handles. The town is on the other side of a long bridge. A few buisneses and a lot of vacant buildings. We were lucky to stumble across the farmers market which is every Monday behind the Firehouse. Also found a nice Deli/Meat market. The meats looked good but we had a great Sub sandwich. It turned out to be a nice quiet stay in a town that has seen it's better days

Good place to overnite after Baldwinswille., 2011-09-29
Captain: , Key Largo (5304)

Park setting with gazebo. Trash, 15 amp electric,and 30 on the west side, and water
Train noise was not so bad , they are accross the river.
I stayed here in 105 degree heat, so we did no leave the Aft cabin. Can't tell you anything about the town.

Clyde Village dock, 2011-08-21
Captain: , Lake in The Hills, Illinois (542)

The approach from west to the lower dock had only 6' of water. The upper dock had 8 1/2'. The town is pretty small. We ate at the little barrel bar. Food was good reasonably priced and the staff was excellent.

Clyde Village Dock, 2011-07-12
Captain: , Stratford, CT (658)

A free dock with power and water next to a quiet park.
Pizza restaurant in town but not much else.
Peaceful stop on the Erie.
Our draft is 3'10" and we have 1 1/2 feet under the keel so becareful.

Lauraville Landing Dock, 2011-03-31
Captain: , Sodus Bay, NY (505)

That is the actual name for this dock.
I am Captain Al Baris, I live here in Clyde and I am the person responsible for our town building this dock. We have free electric and water, and although we don't publicly offer this....if you need a car or a ride, you can call me and I would be gald to come to the dock to meet you if I am in town.
You will see a small kisok when you get off the boat and my phone number is listed there.

Clyde Town dock, 2011-01-03
Captain: , Utica, Ohio (245)

Watch the depths, at least at the east end of the dock. We bumped (soft, probably mud) and we only draw 5 foot. Once we reached the middle of the dock we had depth.
Clyde is a hike up a hill and across the bridge. We found a large, clean laundromat. We were there on a Sunday night, and the only restaurants open were essentially take-out pizza. Small but nice town, but like many on the Canal it appears that it's time has passed. The lack of a marina on the town side of the river makes it an inconvenient stop but it's free, quiet, and if you're willing to walk a little there is shopping/provisions.

Nice small dock, 2010-04-12
Captain: , Lake Livingston, TX (258)

A nice, under utalized tie-up place for an overnight - or more. Water and power FREE !

Clyde Town dock, 2009-08-20
Captain: , Phoenix,NY (286)

The railroad tracks accross the river are busy and noisy.

Captain: , St Louis (671)

Clyde provides a nice wall and docks next to small park. Center of town is across the bridge but has limited shopping and a few restaurants
