The municipal docks in Portsmouth and very convenient to the park and downtown. The attendant was very helpful and communicated well. Beautiful view of the river and bridge.

While the staff was very accommodating regarding scheduling and dock usage, the holiday weekend boat traffic on the Piscataqua and wakes being left by them rendered our boat unusable while on the dock during the day. We were on the wooden docks at the park and these may be a bit less "wake friendly" than the neighboring cement docks with power and water. We may try to use the docks again at on a less popular weekend, as the access to downtown Portsmouth is exceptional!

Reservation was ready when we arrived. Great slip!

The dock was in very poor condition, no available power or water. With the current being extreme our boat rocked terribly even with the smallest boats passing. I would not stay here again.

Very accommodating staff, perfect location if you want to visit Portsmouth, which is an excellent walking town. You literally cannot get closer to downtown. The marina is right next to the Memorial Bridge, which raises on demand at the 1/2 hour. And you are right across the river from the historic Portsmouth Naval Shipyard. Plenty of boats coming and going!

Reserving through Dockwa was very easy. I received several emails from Dockwa and from Prescott Park Dock prior to confirm my reservation. This was helpful and comforting. Once at the dock the Prescott Park Dock staff was extremely helpful. I am sorry I forget his name but he ran down to our slip each time we docked and helped us secure lines, etc. He also helped us with electrical hookups and solved some minor problems through troubleshooting. At the end of the day he walked around to tell the boat owners when he was going off duty and asked if we needed anything. I noticed that he stayed well beyond his shift to assist more boats that were coming in. This shows he is dedicated to his job. Thanks well done! We had a great two nights at the Prescott Park Docks. We hope to do it again and we hope the same staff member is there!

Personally, I thought the person who was on call that day, Ben, went above and beyond and should be recognized for it.
