Reviews for Village Public Dock A
Great Time, 2015-08-24
Captain: , Mitchells Bay (60)

We stayed here week of Aug 17 and literally had the dock to ourselves. Maybe only 4 other boats total on the three fingers.
Staff was fantastic with the only issue being the washrooms were a little walk and had to pay for shower use.
Sitting on the stern facing Boradwalk was an impressive view.
Also quite a little show every evening when it was time to lower the flag at Boradwalk, very impressive.
Rented Golf carts and toured the island for the two days and had lots of fun.
Will definitely go back again next year.

Loud at times, think spring break with 50somethings running around!!Fun if thats your thing. Inside the walls, there is some shallow spots, never listen to other boaters- trust the dockmasters!!

You won't get much sleep here on the weekends, but it is a fun place to party! It gets very crowded on the weekends and somtimes boats will dock on the outside of B dock. Don't do this if a NE or N wind is forecasted. The resulting waves can tear your boat up, even with the best of fenders. There are not enough power outlets for all dock spaces, so tell the dockhands ahead of time if that is mandatory.

If your looking for a party these are the docks you are looking for.

Don't expect a quite night.

Great dockmaster and dockhands on B dock. A and C seem to be run by kids or very young adults. Still do an okay job but not nearly the quality of service as B dock

Well you will either love it or hate it. Depends upon what you are looking for. If you want drunk dabauchery, loud music and women dropping their tops for beeds, this is where you want to tie up. There is a rule for mandatory rafting up to four boats out from the dock. No exceptions. So be prepared to bring lots of fenders, lines, and be ready for your boat to rock over in the middle of the night when the guys tied up next to you get back to the boat from the bars. B docks seems to be party central, while the A Dock and C Dock are a little quieter. But you can't call any of these docks relaxed. Bath house gets cleaned often, but they are often an utter disaster from all the drunks. The staff can not possibly keep up on a Saturday night. Bring your quarters for the showers. The dock masters really know their stuff how to tie up the boats. (no sarcasm here, they really do know their stuff well!) But they will tie the boats to maximise how many boats they can fit on the dock. While they will try to get you rafted up with your friend, they have to raft similar sized boats up with each other.

If you like to party hardy, you will be hard pressed to find a more hopping place then the Put In Bay City Docks. Even if you don't tie up here, walk down them to people watch. Just don't bring your kids... unless you want them exposed to beer, boobs and cursing.
