Reviews for The Landings At Henry Harbor
Not on the "Lock Wall", 2016-08-06
Captain: , Portland, Oregon (496)

In my humble opinion no self respecting boat owner who values the condition of his/her boat would take a chance of damaging it by trying to dock on this so called wall. It is a pile of crumbling rocks with steel loops cemented into the stones some distance back from the edge so that is is impossible to get a hold of one and tie up before the current sweeps you down the channel and into the "fuel dock" at the end. I would not recommend docking a boat over 30 feet here to my worst enemy.

A place to stop. Very little in way of facilities or service, 2015-08-27
Captain: , Iuka, MS (1120)

Too shallow to enter basin with our 4.4' draft, so stayed in decrepit old lock. Tricky to place fenders and loops to attach lines are small and hard to spot. Electric worked which was a surprise since it looked like it had been submerged by this year's flooding. Grocery and a couple restaurants are easy walk away.

not impressed, 2015-07-30
Captain: , Owensboro (40)

Stayed one night. cheap enough but showers were filthy (cigarette butts on shower floor). would not help with lines. girl behind bar more interested in visiting with her friend than checking us in.

OK- nothing fancy, 2014-10-05
Captain: , Holland (270)

This was an OK stop, the dockage was $1/ft., there was diesel fuel at the gas dock ($4.59/gal). The water depth on inside docks may be skinny for some, I saw 3 1/2 ft briefly. The restrooms are shared with the ajacent bar/restaurant and the seperate showers were spartan. There were not even hooks on the wall. It is an easy walk into town for groceries and a meal at a few local eateries.

Good stop, Enjoyed it., 2014-09-16
Captain: , Rocky River, Ohio (20)

With the high water, we were able to stay at the docks, they were modern floaters, about the same quality as the IVY Club. They had a friendly staff, and Jeff advised us on docking when we called for reservations. Would stop again.

Nice Enough for What it is, 2014-09-07
Captain: , Wickford, RI (550)

We tied-up in the lock with four other Looper boats; no problems. Yes there is a current but it's manageable. Showers are fine; the restaurant is basic but good. The fuel and pump-out were welcome.

Great stop, 2014-09-06
Captain: , Massapequa,NY (986)

We really like this stop, but you want to be in the marina at the floating docks, not on the lock wall. The lock wall is really rough, tough to tie up, and has electric but no water. We draw 4 ft. and had no problem inside the marina. The bottom is very muddy so we stirred up, but didn't hit. Great restaurant on site. Real small town, but has a grocery & Dairy Queen.

Should be a ZERO star rating, 2014-09-03
Captain: , Louisville, KY (347)

Pulled into the tiny gas dock after trying all day to call on the phone, and several attempts on the radio. Bartender said the phone was out of service all day and they don't have a radio. After determining that I could fit into a slip in the marina as opposed to the old lock wall, I tried to move my boat. I am singlehanding, the current is QUITE strong, and my lines were bowstring tight. I freed 2, but had to cut the last one, and the current swung me into the dock, damaging my swim platform rub rail. The only person actually working the marina during the week is the boss, and he wasn't on site. This is a very small marina, and most looper-sizes boats would have difficulty using it, other than the lock wall. I don't recommend it.

A Stop We'll Remember, 2013-09-14
Captain: , Chattanooga, TN (483)

Like Bobby's Fish Camp on the Tenn-Tom, Henry Harbor Marina is a stop we'll remember because we "docked" within a late-1800s lock. Our 34' sailboat draws 4-1/2', so we turned to starboard toward the fuel dock and tied up on the old lock wall about 30 feet away. We put lots of fenders out. Even though it's shallow everywhere on the river, we had no problems with depth.

A bar with bar food is nearby. In fact, that's the main business of the marina owner, sort of like Bobby's Fish Camp is for fishermen. Other restaurants are a short walk uphill in town. A small grocery, hardware store, and laundromat are also in town.

Showers are separate from the restrooms that also serve bar guests. They are bare minimum and could benefit from a hook or chair to hold towels and clothes. We've been in worse. We've been in many better for the cost.

Henry is a handy stop, 2013-08-31
Captain: , Panama City, FL (574)

Enjoyed great service and two 30 amp power plugs for a reasonable 1$/ft. This town has lots of useful essentials like groceries, laundry and places to eat. Sat market in the square. A great stop on the lock wall if well fendered for 5 ft draft. Even in lower water we had 5 under the boat. Note good courtesy dock next to marina for those anchoring behind Henry Island.

Overnight berth while in transit from Chicago to Louisville KY, 2013-04-25
Captain: , Louisville KY (387)

pulled in about 8 with reservations for overnight mooring. Spent 42.00 for dirty showers and no power at the dock. Had to run my genset. Had a great lounge with good service although the bartender was new and we mixed our own drinks! Approach depths of about 5' and only one slip big enough to accomodate my 420AC.

Safe and Quite, 2012-07-27
Captain: , Guntersville, AL (451)

Stayed on the old, old lock wall. First lock ever constructed on the Illinois River is now used by the marina for larger boats. Depth alongside is good. Wall is very rough so fender well. Good protection from passing tows, little if any wake. Two phase 30 Amp power with use of Smart Y. Owner very helpful. $1/ft on this date.

Stopped for fuel and stayed the night, 2011-10-24
Captain: , Channel Islands, California (1149)

Their fuel prices were fair. The help was excellent. The owner called me on the phone and told me he'd have someone stay late to help us fuel as we were going to arrive after 5:00 pm. Nice restaurant and bar on premises. Very woodsy environment. Very quiet and protected. The town is also quaint. Had a terrific breakfast in town.

Be careful on lock wall, 2011-09-15
Captain: , Cape Canaveral (1081)

The rock wall is safe, but watch your footing. There are multiple, small steel loops along the top of the rock wall that are hard to see, especially at dusk or dark. These are hazardousl to your health if you stumble over one and into the lock. Also, watch our for 10" diameter hold in the concrete base around one light pole. It could break your ankle, though I may try to fill it in before we leave tomorrow morning.

Friendly people, worthwhile stop, 2011-09-05
Captain: , Dunedin, FL (6425)

Tied to lock wall along with one other boat. Arrived late, but someone there to help out. Settle up inside Landings Bar & Restaurant. 30 amp power on the wall, extra long power cord needed. Watch your footing along old lock wall, slippery with sharp edges. Previously stayed inside harbor, prefer lock wall. Quiet on the wall, even when band playing at the bar.

Henry Marina, 2011-05-23
Captain: , Whitehall, Mi (1754)

Nice stop. Helpful staff. If you are deeper draft ask about using the old lock. Easy walk into town.

Not the best marina, 2010-09-25
Captain: , Jekyll Island, Georgia (50)

No water. We were put inside and got stuck in the mud. We damaged our prop. The dock boards were too far apart and my dog couldn't walk on it. We were moved to the old wall and it was very difficult to get on and off the boat.

A great port in a storm, 2010-09-04
Captain: , Memphis TN (977)

My five foot draft would not let me into the harbor. (< 4 ft) Stayed on the old lock wall, very crumbly but very safe. Restaurant has good hamburgers. Jeff is a good personality and is helpful.

Nice place to stop over, great food at the bar, 2009-10-25
Captain: , Melbourne Florida (4616)

I took my 41' trawler in to the marina and stayed on the first dock, water avg 5.5 feet. Jeff, the owner, was a great guy and made our stay very enjoyable. Will go back. Great breakfast at Nan's downtown too.....Grocery story is close by also.
