Fuel available; a bit dated docks

Wonderful place, 2015-09-23
Captain: , lexington, Ky (60)

WE stayed here 9/21/15; Owner gone for the day, staff very helpful. We cooked out on their deck overlooking the marina on their grill. Big nice fire pit up there also. Wonderful clean showers. All the boats at this marina are in good order. Free pump-out for us--but didn't need it, we have a compost toilet. Had free shuttle from Balterra Casino to go play for a few hours that evening after dinner.

I stayed here overnight in fall 2013. New shower house. Slip and fuel are reasonable. I'd stay here again. No question,

Fall 2013 Ohio River Cruise, 2013-10-19
Captain: , Montezuma Bay, Ohio (154)

We stayed here for two nights, 10/8 and 10/9/2013. Very relaxing. protected from the river traffic, floating docks, handicap accessible, and simply great people. We made this a destination for an end of season cruise just to get away from it all. Pump out station, gas and diesel, and a more than reasonable dock price. Any time we decide to stay at Marklan Dam this will be our choice.

Stopped for fuel at the marina. It's small, but you get excellent service.

We were stuck here for about 4 hours because of heavy barge traffic through the lock. The owner had one of his employees run us over to the casino for a couple of hours and came back to pick us up. Great place for a overnight or fuel stop.

Friendliest Place on the River, 2013-08-19
Captain: , Cincinnati (1810)

If you want to be treated like family, stop here. Spent many times here over the past 5 years. The owners are the friendliest folks I have ever met. Not the fanciest place but it is clean, maintained, and more than reasonably priced. Belterra Gambling Boat will send a limo to pick you up. There are a few marinas in the area but this is the best all around marina. Normally the best price on fuel in the Markland Pool.

Nice, quiet, friendly place to stay., 2012-10-02
Captain: , Louisville (97)

Bob, Mike and Ed are very kind and extremely accommodating. Competive fuel prices. We stop here every time through and are never disappointed. I only wish I could say the same about our visits to Belterra Casino.

Friendly Staff, 2012-07-06
Captain: , Aquia Harbour, VA (1177)

Nice stop. Reasonable prices on dockage and fuel. Marina is in a basin so no wakes from passing tows or other boats. Very clean restroom and laundry facilities. A courtesy car would be a nice addition since there is nothing within walking distance.

Great Place, 2012-05-27
Captain: , Pgh,Pa (224)

This is my third time staying here and would stay again. Not fancy but protected. Can see main river channel from protected slip. Good prices on fuel. Only $25 overnight for 70' includine Elec. Very friendly.

Friendly place to stay, 2010-04-08
Captain: , Jeffersonville, IN (582)

This is may not be the fanciest marina on the river but the owners treat you like you have been life long friends. The slips are priced right and you are in a protected cove away from the river's wakes. Great for a relaxing place to stay.

Great bargin, 2009-08-19
Captain: , Lewisburg (38)

charged me only $10.00 for an overnight slip, I did not use any utilities, other than a 110v 15A outlet to charge a cell phone,call bell terra for a free ride from the marina office to the casino. Eat at the Buffet for 17.95, best buffet I ever ate at.
