Reviews for Shady Grove Harbor
Easy Access, 2016-11-01
Captain: , Somerville, TN (201)

Easy access just off the main channel with good deep water along a well marked subchannel to the marina.

Randy met us at the transit/fuel dock and helped with the lines, power and pump out. He was professional, courteous and shared information about what to expect on our journey to Knoxville.

We were very impressed with how clean and "spider free" the entire marina is.

Definitely a good decision to stop here and will do so again.

Stopped here on the way to Knoxville, will stop again on the down stream trip. Owners are present and always helpful. Clean well kept marina which we enjoy.

Very pleasant marina, 2014-10-19

Stopped here overnight and fuled up before heading to Chattanooga. We were in luck that he had two spots opened. Do call if you can for transcient space.

Great stop, 2013-12-31
Captain: , Woodstock, Georgia (409)

Very easy in from the River. Diesel was $3.95 per gallon, with tax included. Owner came down to help us tie up al pump fuel.

Very nice place, 2013-10-05
Captain: , Cleveland, OH (344)

Very nice, but the lack of a loaner car means you are really isolated.

Way above average, 2011-12-01
Captain: , Soddy Daisy, Tn. (80)

Randy and Terry are all about taking care of their customers. Very friendly stop. Breakfast on weekends.

Nice stop - Lotsa Crocs, 2011-10-20

We stopped by in July for a pumpout and a few pair of Crocs. Great folks!

Shady Grove Harbor October 2011 Visit, 2011-10-14
Captain: , Roswell, GA (455)

Top notch, friendly helpful staff, cool dock store (Croc's on sale), loaner car a big plus, good BBQ a mile away.

Great stop, 2011-07-18
Captain: , Franklin Tn (441)

How can one get more into a store? From the ships store to the restaurant. What a collection of Croc's! Very helpful and service is first rate.

Shady Grove? Yes!, 2011-07-18
Captain: , Illinois (2469)

Great stop, friendly, helpful staff, lots of parts and spares, great selection of Crocs, do buy a sandwich! Yummy!
.50ft slip rent....yes!

Still one of the nicest on the tennessee river., 2011-02-17
Captain: , baltimore md (644)

We had heard from several cruisers that tihis was a nice stop and we found it just that. Plenty of depth even at winter pool.Nice docks and grounds. You couldn't do better at .50 per ft. We got 12 TV channels over the air. They have wifi but we did not get the pass word. Verizon air card had a very hard time. We felt very secure here.

Shady Grove visit September 2009, 2010-03-16
Captain: , Wallhamn, Sweden (88)

Great stopover. We arrived at 1815h after calling ahead and Randy was on the dock waiting to tie us up and help us get settled. Comfortable and well protected from passing bass boat wakes. Very well maintained marina and a very relaxing place to stop. Plenty of depth on approach and at the fuel dock. Nothing to worry about.

Updated phone numbers and fuel, 2009-11-27
Captain: , Melbourne Florida (4616)

Phone number was wrong and the other was disconnected, finally got through, winter price was .50 a foot, $2.85 for diesel.......

Excelent Marina, 2008-11-21
Captain: , Jacksonville, FL (822)

Small, very clean, well run and the folks are great.

Shady Drove Harbor, 2007-10-04
Captain: , St. Michaels, MD (61)

Randy and his wife run a very nice marina. Usually very competitive gas and diesel fuel prices. Close to Steve's Restraunt at Pine Harbor - check bridge heights.

Great Stop, 2007-09-22
Captain: , North GA Mountains (649)

This is one of the friendliest marina. Stoped for lunch one day. Great ship's store and BBQ.

Nice stop, 2007-07-22
Captain: , Jupiter, FL (1236)

Nice and quiet. Very friendly folks. Very protected. Restaurant close.

Shady Grove Harbor, 2007-02-02
Captain: , Chattanooga Tennessee (82)

This is the friendliest marina on the Tenn. river. Owners and renters will go out of their way for all courteous boaters. Great ship's store. Pump-out, Gas, diesel, BBQ, beer and all the little goodies you tend to run out of. Deep water year round right off the Tenn river in Soddy Creek at mile marker 487.6. If your cruising the Tenn. rive, you MUST stop here and say Hi. Or spend the night.
