    This is a logical stopping point above the dam, although there are other marinas nearby.

    I was very disappointed on my recent visit. The dockhands seemed inexperienced. There were no incidents, but they needed direction on how to handle the lines. Also, of major concern, two out of three of their fuel pumps were not working. They said that they had been having problems with them for some time, but "I guess they came out to look at them but left before they fixed them". This can be a real issue if you need fuel for the further journey north or south.

    The docks are good floating docks, good power, good wifi. Before I go back to this facility, I would certainly call them to check on the status of their fuel pumps.

    The Paducah city dock is 10 or so miles below the dam on the Ohio River and is another alternative for boaters passing through the area.
