Reviews for Town of Occoquan Docks
For an overnight stay this is a good place along the towns limited waterfront., 2015-07-07
Captain: , Moyock, NC (984)

We wouldn't have had a problem getting into or staying at the town's dock, but our 40' boat would have taken more space on the dock than we believe the town expects. It appears to be sized for (3) three 20' length boats with (3) 30 amp pedistals. The down stream end does sometimes have commercial use and should be typically left available. The mostly under water rock dike has an island silted up at the end. Follow the marked channel under the far east side of the Route 123 bridge and go directly into and out of the bridge channel to and from the town dock.

Average for a town dock, 2014-08-29
Captain: , North Myrtle Beach, SC (3210)

Pier in good shape, but very high off water. There is debris around the dock, and we had to move a log to get to tie up. There is another log that also kept us from tieing up to the end so that other boats could tie up. The big thing is that the electrical is all 30 amp, which is not big deal in of itself, but they are all on one leg, so if you need 220 volt, you wont get it. Nice resturant on site. It is still $1/ft on the honor system. Be careful on the downstream part of the dock, as there is a small jetty that is submerged.

Clean and not busy, 2014-06-17
Captain: , Neabsco Creek, VA (251)

These docks are clean and typically not very busy. Getting in here from the Potomac can take a long time because of the many marinas along the Occoquan and the lengthy no wake zone. The channel can get pretty busy in nice weather. Old Town Occoquan is quaint with some shops and overpriced restaurants. Check out the Bottle Stop wine shop for a treat.

Nice old river town, 2014-03-04
Captain: , Annandale Va. (265)

Nice to relax and unwind. Long ride to get to by boat but not choppy water to go throw. For a nice and slow day go.

Great way to access the Town of Occoquan, 2013-10-02
Captain: , Herndon, VA (42)

This is a fixed dock that is high off the water, so prepare for a climb if you're not next to one of the ladders. Keep in mind that there is only room for around 3 boat lengths on the outside of the dock so you may need to raft up. The inside of this dock is not usable. The area on the very left side of the dock (on approach) is used for several commercial vessels to pickup and drop off passengers, so don't block their access. Overnighting is possible for a nomimal fee, but we haven't tried that yet.

Danger!!!!!, 2013-09-06
Captain: , Fairfax, VA (80)

There is a line of rocks that run southeast from the town docks tot the surface and are poorly marked. They are in from to the Carefree docks that are in front of Madigan's Restauraunt. Almost hit them so watch out!

New Occoquan Village Dock, 2007-08-07
Captain: , Occoquan, Virginia (68)

It's really great that the town has finally made it easy to come to visit by boat. We cruised up the river at low tide in a twin screw inboard sportfisher in July (07), and didn't have any problems. We went around the barge under the bridge, and the depth was quite sufficient. So when the bridge construction is finished it should be even easier. The dock is fixed, so you have to climb up a vertical ladder. But it's conveniently located within walking distance to all the restauraunts and boutiques of this historic and quaint little village.

In the heart of the quaint old town of Occoquan. Limited dockage, not sure you can overnight. Due to bridge construction access may be blocked by bridge work barges. Check ahead and be careful at night.
