    Very nice on the phone when I called to inquire about services. We needed diesel, water, and pump out. The man who answered was very polite and helpful but Lamb's marina does not have pump out so we had to keep going, hoping to find that service else where. There was no pump out available in Elizabeth City in November 2020.

    Lambs Marina has several things going for it that make it a good stop.

    First, it's the closest marina to The Dismal Swamp. If you are hoping to make the first lock opening, there really isn't a better place to stay. It also has a great rate for a marina (you can obviously stay for free at many of the Elizabeth City docks; however you wouldn't have access to water and electricity.)

    Lambs Marina was quiet and safe. There is a great Mexican restaurant there with a little convenience store too. The local Enterprise will come pick you up at Lambs Marina if you choose to rent a car.

    While Lambs Marina certainly isn't the nicest or newest, it's a quality place to spend a few nights.

    Stayed the night before transiting Dismal Swamp. Quiet place, we definitely filled the transient slip. PVC pipes mark the entrance channel, longish fairway with turning basin all the way at the end next to the fuel docks. While narrow entrance and fairway looked daunting for our size, we had no trouble. The owner, Larry, volunteered to be at the pier to handle lines before dawn so that we could get an early start. Nice place.

    Protected spot to stay after enduring the Alligator River & Albermale Sound; real laid back marina with fixed docks & fuel. Rested up before heading into the dismal swamp. Bill is the dockmaster and will take you anywhere you want to go. Dollar General & two restaurants with-in a 1/4 mile.

    Well protected spot to start or end the Dismal Swamp route. Charming staff and low key marina. Diesel and non-ethanol gas.

    Fixed pier, but no real tide, current or wind here, so it's an easy tie up. Good Wifi

    Restaurant is closed, but one is across the street (more of less).

    Price was right.

    Stayed twice, fall 2014 and spring 2015. A few hundred yards up a narrow but well marked creek. Very friendly, inexpensive, very local marina with some liveaboards. Nice laundry facilities and showers in an air conditioned lounge trailer. Both gas and diesel. There's a convenience store and cafe-type restaurant on site, but nothing else for some distance. No other services but if you needed a mechanic I'm sure Mr. Lamb would be able to find you one.
