I didn’t like it, but that’s just my opinion.
The Bathrooms appear to be honest to God prison bathrooms, you know stainless steel
toilets with no seat etc.
Where you check in at will be your longest dinghy ride and it’s not an easy place to find either, and the people that work
there I think may never have seen the field. I was telling her I was in front of an aircraft hanger how do I get to where you are, her answer is there are no aircraft hangers, you must be somewhere else.
Anyway be prepared to show proof of Insurence and registration
of the boat
and dinghy, I’ve never had to show and fill out so much paperwork at any place before, not even Marina’s.
The people hanging around the showers and dinghy dock
were worrisome to me, and the shower
/ dinghy dock is a long walk to town.
We ended up buying
a dinghy dock pass and shower
tickets I guess you would call them right in town, much nicer showers and in town.
I’ve not been in a couple of years so maybe things have changed, but I think I may give the mooring field a pass if I go back
I’ve never anchored out in KY, but was determined if we ever go back that we would.
I draw 5’ and was nervous but never touched, we met someone who said they drew 7’ and I have no idea how they got in, I assume plowed their way in at high tide.
I’m attaching a picture, the small lake looking area to the upper left is where you check in, and where water
is available, but of course your big boat
isn’t getting in there.
To get into the area of town you probably want to go to, you go under the bridge to Garrison bight and buy a dinghy pass to tie up, it’s also a better place to shower.
If you have a small slow dinghy the current under that bridge can get swift and the water
out by Garrison bight rough so be careful, if you have a RIB
with a bigger motor
you will have no problem and wonder what I’m talking about.
When I was there the pump
out boat never showed and when I called the office they said they didn’t think he would, and I swear their answer was they thought the wind
would be blowing that day.
