Reviews for Ocean Falls Municipal Dock
Ocean Falls Dock, 2016-08-27
Captain: , Kirkland, WA (4478)

The municipal dock is a very nice facility and the town is a good stop. Located in a fiord type inlet the remaining buildings from this once active town are great for exploration. The harbour master is very helpful. Evening events bring the dock guests together for potluck, movies, and other fun gatherings.



Great Restful Stop, 2016-08-18
Captain: , Everett, Washington (824)

We stayed here one night in early August. The dock has two long piers for side-tying and there was amble room for our 40 foot trawler. The Wifi is slow but kinda of there. The harbor master is great and the town is worth a stop. There is power and water but no garbage service.



Docks are great, town is sad, 2015-05-23
Captain: , Coconut Grove, FL (589)

Population is up or down to 28 depending on reference point. No stores, bar was closed when we visited.



Best deal going, 2014-05-16
Captain: , Austin (421)

I don't know where you can find a better deal on moorage. There is 30A power available, internet, but no cell phone coverage. Be sure to take the hike to the lake. Crabs are plentiful. We had strong outflow winds from Dean Channel.

Had a nice stay Aug 2012, water is good, good exploring the abadoned town and dam. Fishing and crabing is very good. We will visit again.

When you are in Ocean Falls and it is not raining it is a "PERFECT DAY" Friendly people, clean docks, clean facilities, great water and the remains of Pulp Mill Town. Abandoned in 1980. "The Story of Ocean Falls - Rain People" by Bruce Ramsey is a must read.
