    We have docked here twice. We didn't find significant current either time. Great free spot! We helped a sailboat in who was going to avoid it because they saw on this site a water depth range of 5 to 35 feet, and feared it was five. That must be at the kayak launch all of the way down. We have seen a good nineteen feet of depth at the floating concrete docks in Sister's Creek.

    This used to be a marina, but it is vacant now and owned by the city. Current can be a bit strong but dock is floating concrete. Treat this as you would an anchorage with no facilities. Nothing within walking distance, but a great place to tie up and walk the dog.

    There are three floating cement docks here, two on Sisters Creek and a third one just north on a side creek I stayed on the side creek. Had 17' under my keel at mid tide..Current is significant and recommend using this dock only at slack tide...

    Good dock. Bridge has a very good bike lane. Watch out for strong currents.

    This used to be a commercial marina, then the city bought it and its free now. Floating concrete dock, big enough for the 6 boats we had there. Sign says 72 hrs free. Read more about it on my blog elizabethkelch.com
    Bathrooms seemed uncleaned in some time.
    No restaurants or anything within walking distance. Great place to tie up for the night along the way and ya can't beat the price.
