Reviews for Wildcat Marina
Pretty rough but useable, 2015-10-19
Captain: , Ohio, IL (255)

I meet the new owner Jimmy. Said we could use one of the covered slips but there was no eletric or water yet. It has a ways to go but he's working on it.



was closed, 2015-07-30
Captain: , Table Rock Lake, Missouri (62)

This marina was closed because of flood damage. Check to make sure they are back open before planning on their offerings.



Nice overnight spot, 2013-11-25
Captain: , Heber Springs, AR (146)

Within walking distance of food. Sisters in town is very nice. Mexican near marina is also good. Sonic near marina for ice cream. Marina has a shower and toilet.



Get place to hangout for a day or so, 2012-01-17
Captain: , Applegate Cove Marina (40)

Not many marinas on the river system so take advantage of this one. Take care when entering this marina. Read the navigational aids and if your still not sure give them a call so they can help get you in.



Great place to spend the night, 2011-01-06
Captain: , Russellville, AR (133)

Marina people VERY friendly and eager to make your stay comfortable. Very clean and neat. About 1/2 mile walk to historic downtown Van Buren where you'll find restaurants, suprisingly good antique shops and historic sites.



Pleasant surprise!, 2010-11-04
Captain: , Shreveport, La (81)

We found Wildcat to be first class. People extremely helpful and knowledgeable. Reasonable prices, gas with NO ETHANOL! Restrooms and showers are sparkling clean.
Needed a ride to get supplies and was promptly accommodated. Highly recommend the marina if you are in the area.












Emerald Cove Marina, 2008-02-03
Captain: , Hite, Utah (15667)

Our boat was too large (57') to use any of their slips so we were allowed to tie to the fuel dock for several days while we dealt with a refrigeration problem. Very friendly service.
