Reviews for Kentucky Dam Marina
Use if needing a month, 2016-10-27
Captain: , Beaufort, NC (250)

Use if needing a monthly place to park the boat. Since you are one of the few transient boaters here....never a problem getting the curiosity van. Their monthly rate rocks for our 45' it was $365. A great place to leave the boat and make a trip back home. The laundry is 2 stackable units $1.50 per load, no one is ever using it, the drawback is no folding table. The marina is mostly slip owners and very long docks to walk, they all have golf carts. So we have mixed feelings about the marina, ask for dock #2 nice bunch of people there.



Great stop, 2016-08-09
Captain: , New Port Richey (310)

We did the first thing in the morning stop and they where on spot. Thanks Team



Easy to deal with. Easy in and out, 2016-04-12
Captain: , Henderson Ky (12)

Getting into this marina with a very large boat is easy as compaired to others. Highly reccomended. Golf Cart Friendly all the way to your boat.

What a great experience!, 2015-06-07
Captain: , Nashville TN (11)

Marty Tabor is willing to go the extra mile! They have shower and laundry facilities, fuel is fairly priced, the local slippers are very nice. This marina is in great shape and provides a nice quiet relaxing atmosphere! Wireless internet and courtesy car available!




beautiful marina, 2015-04-02

great marina, great staff,professional and knowledgeable



Showers Redun, 2014-09-22
Captain: , Westbrook CT (277)

Showers were competely retiled a couple of weeks ago.



We enjoyed being here, 2014-05-06
Captain: , Cincinnati (1810)

We stayed here for three months in 2010. The price was good and since we had a car here, we did the touristy thing. If you stay here, a must stop is Patti's Restaurant and they will come and pick you up. Unfortunately, the transient dock is also the main dock open to the public so there is a lot of foot traffic on dock during the day. The showers and restrooms, that you need to use after hours, are not convienent or close.



Take a cruise., 2013-10-08
Captain: , Illinois (2444)

We used the boat ramp and left our truck and trailer for a week to cruise Kentucky Lake.
Everything was secure upon our return and we patronized several establishments in Kentucky and Tennessee. Thank you Kentucky State Parks.



Excellent facility, great staff., 2011-10-10
Captain: , Mesa AZ (1609)

Very accommodating to my wife, who was treated professionally and with courtesy. Impressed with the clean facility. Good value and low fuel prices.



3 day stay was nice, 2011-09-29
Captain: , Westport,Ma (700)

they have a courtesy car (van) nice marina very calm, can be a bit confusing as to wherre to go once in, especially finding the fuel dock. nice ship store. I would stay again.



POOR BOAT RENTAL AND CUSTOMER SERVICE REPS, 2011-08-11
Captain: , INDIANA (10)

I HAD THE WORST EXPERIENCE AT THIS MARINA RECENTLY AND WANT ANYONE INTERESTED IN VISITING THIS AREA TO BE CONCERNED ESPECIALLY IF YOU ARE FEMALE. MANAGEMENT WAS VERY QUICK TO JUDGE REGARDING GENDER AND VERY UNPROFESSIONAL WHEN APPROACHED REGARDING A RENTAL BOAT CONCERN. THEY HAVE VERY POOR OPERATING RENTAL BOATS AND EVEN MORE DISAPPOINTING CUSTOMER SERVICE FROM MANAGEMENT. I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND RENTING A BOAT FROM THIS MARINA IF YOU PLAN ON GOING ANY FARTHER THAN THE DOCK.



Very disappointing, 2011-03-30
Captain: , Waverly, WV (116)

Stayed here Aug. 2010, after a bigger disappointment at Green Turtle bay. Don't get me wrong, nice facility, neet and clean. Staff,???,, well, friendly, sort of, but just disinterested. Our A/C stoped working, heat index 115, asked about getting to a room at the resort. Answer from 3 staff members behind the counter was,"It's probably over a mile, I'd say, do you really feel like walking that far in this heat". So I asked about a place to rent a car so I would have a way to get around. The answer was, "Paduca is the closest car rental, they may bring the car to you for an additional charge". No, I was not offered a courtesy car, a ride, a # to call for a car, or even a phone. We started to walk to the resort, but in the heat and my wife had twisted her knee a few days earlier, we went back. This time asking the staff if they rented any of the golf carts sitting in the parking lot. Again giving someone an opportunity, to offer a courtesy vehicle. The only answer I got was, "I dun know". We said the hell with it, stayed on the boat, and decided to leave the next day. As far as we could tell we were the only transients there. Should have had a van available. Also put us on the dock with there rental boats, which they were pressure cleaning all day long. We would have liked to gotten out and seen some of the area, and had a chance to spend some money. Instead, headed home the next day and spent it somewhere else. I'll never stop here again.



One of the best, 2010-09-23
Captain: , Cadiz, KY (40)

We were going to spend a week here and after a week we decided to move here. What more can you say.



Nice resting place, 2010-09-22
Captain: , Tellico Marina (290)

Clean, nice facility, dog friendly, loaner car, Wi Fii



Kentucky Dam Marina, 2010-09-13
Captain: , Grand Haven, Mi (2283)

With less commercial traffic on the Tennessee River more and more pleasure craft are using the Kentucky Lock rather than the Cumberland Lock. Kentucky Dam Marina is just upstream of the lock with a well marked channel leading to the marina. The marina is well kept, clean, organized and well run. The help is very helpful and friendly. Shopping is easy with the courtesy van as are restaurants, hardware stores and what ever else you may need. Paducah is just a twenty minute ride from the marina. We are spending a month here and couldn%u2019t have chosen a better marina in the area to stay at.



Nice Marina, 2010-09-07

Marina Review, 2009-07-14
Captain: , Eddyville, KY (282)

Biggest and one of the Best Marinas on Ky Lake. Courtious and helpful staff, ultra clean docks and facilities. Very resonable priced slips, both transient and yearly.



Great choice for transients and seasonal bearth, 2009-06-12
Captain: , Burnt Store, FL (489)

Dock master Marty Tabor and his staff were all very helpful, friendly, and courteous in finding us a covered seasonal berth on short notice. Upon arrival, our dock neighbors helped us tie up, fed and watered us with great hospitality. Highly recommended.
