    Laid back with Southern hospitality. Don the dockmaster could not be more helpful. The crew is very nice Jerry and Billy handled the lines and met us late Sunday. We stayed the week, very quiet. There is a pool we did not try due to the weather. Restrooms showers, etc all here. Old docks but safe. Easy approach with 5-6 ft depths. Very little current or tide. The electrical was good and the wifi worked for us to watch movies. Rental car from enterprise. Gas on site. Diesel by truck. Town is a few miles to shopping center. $5.00 a ft is quoted price for a month. Pets welcome. Lots of liva boards. The 45 slips were full when we got there. They rent pontoon boats and the boat ramp is used by fishermen. We will be back! One restaurant at hotel was closed for renovation, A Grill Cafe is open, Hotel onsite with laundry. The grounds are kept up clean. We will be back!

    We had been by this marina a few years back and did not plan on stopping, but wanted some gas.

    The place was so nice and we stayed for a night, a great stop over between Lake Monroe and Jacksonville.

    The complex is clean, the staff is very helpful, and they have redone the hotel, with conference room, laundry, and large, well furnished and reasonably priced hotel rooms with microwaves and fridges. In some of their rooms they even accept pets. Soon the restaurant will open in addition to the store.

    We had an excellent view of the river in room 102!

    If you stop by, be sure to meet Kelly, the new owner, a great guy!…Neil and Sue Archer
