A boater's guide to Pebble Isle Marina
Located in the tranquil Trace Creek off Kentucky Lake, Pebble Isle Marina is a boater’s oasis. Take a break from cruising the Tennessee River and spend your time relaxing dockside with a drink at the Grey-Heron Grill, stocking up on supplies in town, or taking in some history and sights hiking through the neighboring Johnsonville State Historic Park.
Approach and dockage
Pebble Isle Marina is tucked away in a large secluded cove off of the Tennessee River at mile marker 96. The marina channel will be on your port side if you are coming upstream (headed south) and marked with secondary channel markers. The channel winds a bit and takes you close to the northern shore (on your port side), so just be sure to follow the channel markers closely.
The fuel dock and marina office will be towards your port side once you are facing the marina. The transient dock is the long uncovered dock directly to the east (on the other side) of the fuel dock. Transient boats tie up along either side of the dock.
You can reach the dockmaster on VHF Channel 16 or by phone at 931-535-3827. Marina hours are 7 days a week 8-4 pm and often longer in the summer.
Pebble Isle Marina amenities
One men’s and one women’s bathrooms open 24/7 on the side of the restaurant, close to the transient docks. Showers and additional bathrooms are located a bit of a hike through the parking lot and shared with the campground. They require a keycode to enter.
Coin operated machines (one washer and one dryer) are available in the bathhouse where the showers and restrooms are located. A keycode is needed to enter.
Once you come in or before you take off, head over to the fuel dock to fuel up (gas and diesel) and pump out. Be sure to ask for the Boat US discount on fuel. (If Billy’s helping you out, also ask which of the houseboats used to belong to Dolly Parton’s sister.)
Available when you need it in the marina parking lot. Use it to drive the short distance to Johnsonville State Historic Park or the 15 minutes to the Walmart Supercenter in Waverly to stock up.
The marina has access to spacious grounds to walk your pet on shore.
Morning Cinnamon Buns
If they're available when you’re there, they’re known to have fresh cinnamon buns available in the fall for boaters passing through.
Located on the fuel dock, the ship store has basic items for your cruising needs, from snacks to apparel to basic marine parts/accessories. If they don’t have it, they are happy to order it for you.
They offer mechanical, electrical, and boatyard services on site. If needed, give them a call at 931-535-3827 to discuss your boat needs and what they can offer. TowBoat US also operates out of the marina in case you need help on the water.
Pebble Isle’s water-front restaurant, known for their catfish, offers a range of food and drinks in a laid-back, casual atmosphere. They’re only open seasonally (April-September), so if you aren’t able to catch them when you’re there, you’ll need the courtesy car to get to another dining option.
Proximity to attractions by land
Johnsonville State Historic Park (0.6 miles away)
Johnsonville State Historic Park is a 1,000 acre park about a half mile from the marina, full of hiking, river views, and history. It was once the site of the Johnsonville Depot, which moved supplies that came by boat to aid Union soldiers in Tennessee and Georgia. Confederate soldiers attacked the depot in the Battle of Johnsonville in 1864 during the Civil War. The area then became the town of Johnsonville, before the Tennessee Valley Authority dammed the river to create Kentucky Lake in the 1940s. Historic markers dot the grounds helping share the story of what took place years ago. The entrance is about a half mile from Pebble Isle Marina and easily walkable. However, if you want to see the whole park, recommend biking and then picking up one of the several hiking trails by foot. Heads up as there are some steep hills to climb once in the park.
