Great location,great people, wonderful dock.

Needs bathrooms and showers.

Until they build their own they should consider partnering with the Holiday Inn to provide access to their facilities for a small charge.

Hotels in Oswego, NY provide this service and is well received by the boaters.

Lovely dock and staff


by tyreless on Sep 30, 2017

This is a transient dock, not a marina, so my ranking reflects that. Also it has only been open a week or so. The new dock is lovely and has both 50 and 30 amp power and water. They sell diesel and gas and have a pump out facility. The two guys who were running things were extremely helpful and great ambassadors for Paducah. When we were here the BBQ on the River festival was on, lots of food and live music! Also the National Quilt Museum is a block away. We loved our short stay in Paducah! There were some interested locals visiting the dock (it is open to the public) but there was a security person on the dock in the evening. What is lacking: the staff need portable VHF radios! A nearby place to buy ice and some basic groceries.

The facility is spot on, but there is no one on site to assist with docking. There are no assigned slips. They overbooked the marina the two nights we had reservations so many boats had to raft out and getting power to all the boats was a hassle. Maybe after a while they will figure out how to operate this facility, but for now expect problems.

Great facility in which we could tie up to either side of the dock. Beautiful downtown area within a couple of blocks from the dock with many great restaurants (some with live music), and cute shops. The town has cab and Lift services to stock up supplies from Wal-Mart or a local grocery store. We also enjoyed the 4 mile bike path just a couple blocks from the city dock. Could have stayed another day to take in the many museums. What a GREAT stop!!!

the city is great but the docks have new construction issues , the city parks employees are the best.

About City of Paducah Transient Boat Dock

The City of Paducah's new Transient Docks are a brand new installation on Paducah's riverfront.

The next generation is really why we're here today... The riverfront is the one common neighborhood for everyone in this area. The one neighborhood that everyone shares is the river, because afterall, that is how Paducah got here.

The great old river is replete with history of the United States of America. I want to help the community enhance the river experience so that this common neighborhood that everyone has will be a place to go and enjoy yourself for years and years to come.

-- U.S. Senator Mitch McConnell (August 28, 2006 on Paducah's Riverfront)
