Reviews for Hennepin Visitors Dock
Hennepin Visitors Dock, 2016-09-19
Captain: , Canaveral (40)

Good place for an overnight. Had 10' of water at the barge wall. Restaurant/bar has hot food and good beer. Nice people.



Docks for smaller boats and incorporated barge tie-up for larger boats, 2014-07-24
Captain: , Moyock, NC (984)

No services, but free over night tie up. The guard rails are an obsticale to get over and through if you have a larger boat tied to the incorporated barge. However, the town and grocery store is at the top of the hill and it's a great place to get your pets a shore without using the dinghy.



Great for Free, 2013-12-16
Captain: , Green Cove Springs, FL (165)

Groceries, hardware, and Propane 100 yards away. The only downside were the tugs who rocked us in the night.



Quaint town but not worth the risk..., 2013-04-26
Captain: , Louisville KY (387)

Of a broken leg or arm while navigating fromthe minucipal dock to the town itself. Take a pic fromthe river and keep moving!



Hennepin Dock, 2011-11-11

The Hennepin Dock is an old barge you can tie to. There is a double guard rail that you have to climb over to get to shore. When it is raining, the shore turns into a muddy mess. There is a grocery store, a Restaurant--Ray's on the River, and a laundramat, next to the river. There are two more bars out toward the highway.



No es Bueno!, 2010-08-13
Captain: , Grove, OK (337)

Contrary to some guide books opinions, we found the Hennepin "town docks" to not be worth the effort. If you are a small boat, maybe, but for a cruising boat over 30' --no es bueno. The supposed wall is easy enough with 10-12' alongside, but access to shore is difficult and unsafe. They have a two rail guard rail along the wall and only about 15" of walking room on the water side of the rail. No gate or anything to allow one to get to land and visit the town. You can tip toe around and eventually get to the small docks, but it is definitely not safe. Go somewhere else to spend your money. The town may be great but we didn't feel like breaking our neck to get to shore.
