    Great facility for a free dock overnight; docks are floating and in good condition. Can get full and we’ve heard they sometimes raft up boats when full, but when we visited early on a day in April there was only two other boats there and didn’t fill up that evening. One trick is to be aware there will be fairly significant current in or out of this channel, which is perpendicular to the ICW.

    Thank-You Jacksonville. You can't beat a free dock like this one. The dock is off the ICW so the current is not as bad. Cement dock with plenty of cleats to tie to. There is room to turn around for boats under 50', should you want to change your side to tie up. Bathrooms are a walk across the boat ramp parking lot in a blue building on the east end. A water faucet on the pier. Everyone here seems to be passing through on the ICW.

    Great free Dock. Well built and in excellent shape. There are 6 boats tied up along the long dock. Current runs hard. There is sufficient room to turn around if you go just past the dock in front of the wood walkway. Lots of birds to watch. Nice areas to walk the dog.

    Long free dock. Dock is aluminum and in very good shape. Current can be strong so be aware when docking. Room for about 6 forty foot boats. Usually other boaters will help you dock. At least one water faucet on the dock. There is a webcam if you wish to look ahead of time, but there has always been room when we were there. Park and boat ramp a short distance away but otherwise pretty remote and nothing in walking distance.

    Great spot. Plenty of water at low tide. Stumbled on this place after the fog stopped us and it turned out to be ideal.

    Nice dock in a park like setting. Stopped by twice and we had no problems with current, we do not have bow thrusters but the whole dock was open so maneuvering wasn't difficult.

    The dock is first rate, the current can be strong and make it challenging to dock. On the good side, the current is parallel to the docks so it’s doable. On occasion I’ve even backed in when I wanted to be pointed out the next day. There’s not much room to turn around.

    The bathrooms are sometimes open and sometimes not, depending on the season. I’ve never found them open during migration time. It’s an excellent area for pets, lots of room to walk in the adjacent park. One time I even rafted since the docks were full, no problem. The inside of the dock can also be used for docking but only the end 40 ft or so.
