Neil and Brandon are fantastic. The friendliness and enthusiasm are what you notice immediately about this marina. I also enjoyed the snack shack. I would absolutely stay here again if needed. Thank you.

A wonderful short stop. The Restaurant was fantastic and I only wish I was hungrier! Note they do not sell alcohol but they kindly offered to help drive us to purchase some once they were done shift! Quiet place to spend the night with great pump out and gas services.
A quick Uber to town for supplies or a dinghy ride to explore downtown!
Perfect for those that want to experience town but not be right in it!

We reserved a campsite and a boat slip. Nick was very helpful during the reservation process with excellent communications. Neil was very helpful throughout our stay and a great source of historical information. The marina looks to be one of the best we saw in this basin and had a great pool and very clean facilities. We would recommend this place to anyone wanting to combine camping with boating.

Well protected docks as there is no wake zone. Dockmaster is nice and helpful. Short dinghy ride or bike to town and many restaurants. GOod power at docks. Restrooms and surroundings a bit rough and docks are showing their age but serviceable. Would stay again if Museum docks are full. Seems a bit overpriced for what you get.

We had stayed here 3 years ago. Friendly staff, willing to help out with docking, fueling and pump out. Quiet area with little current. One staff member lent us his Jeep so we could get provisions, really appreciated that. Dinghy to Kingston, rather than walk.

Nice docks. Great help from staff docking and hooking up power. Restaurant on site, with town just a short Uber ride away. Fair walk to use facilities which are not locked and looks like a RV park uses the facilities as well

Quiet, calm. No dinghy dock at Rondout/ Kingston waterfront.

Stayed in inner docks. Docks wood and narrow.
I would not use the showers. Rest of bathroom clean but we'll used.

Wonderfully peaceful and calm dockage on a creek. The place has a relaxed almost homey feel. Quiet at night. My first 8 hour sleep in a long time! Tony whips up a huge tasty breakfast burrito for breakfast. Neil was great on the docks and giving us recommendations for dinner. Showers and bathrooms were fine. Nothing fancy but adequate.

Had a great Labor Day weekend. Brandon was great! Helpful and always available. The cafe serves good food at reasonable prices. Pool was nice. Bathrooms could use some updating.\n\nIt's been about 10 years since we were there, but will definitely be back next year!
by Kevin C. - Verified user on Oct 07, 2022
Couldnt hail anyone prior to, or at arrival, by either phone or radio (started trying an hour + before arriving). But to be fair, they were pulling boats for the season. Bathrooms were adequate at best. Fuel went from $6.08 the day we arrived, to $6.38 overnight. Of course, noone told us when we arrived it would be hiked that high the next day, even tho we told them we'd be fueling up. The dock hand that helped us the next day was nice, helpful and professional.
by Maryann T. - Verified user on Oct 04, 2022
Older working boatyard and marina. Friendly staff, excellent on site cafe. Bathrooms were dismal and needed a cleaning. Finger piers were very short (half of our 50’ boat hung out past the end).
by Stephen C. - Verified user on Sep 12, 2022
We love Rondout Yacht Basin. Staff is great. Pool is refreshing. Toni will make you a delicious meal at the cafe. Most of all the people at the basin are the best. Looking forward to visiting again soon.

Excellent service with a personal touch. Rented a slip overnight and stayed in nearby Kingston. Uber's are hard to depend on lately. Marina owner gave us a ride into town and honestly couldn't have been nicer. The marina is on the Round Out Creek about 3/4 of a mile off the Hudson. Good choice to stop for loopers on the way north.

This is our 5th year coming up on our boat for a stay. These guys are great and you have access to the areas sights and scenes- My boys love it. It is a wonderful time to unplug with the family - priceless.

Very nice folks. Facility has everything you'd expect. Even the wifi works! The only minor issue is the overall decay of the place. Not bad though !
by Kelly S. - Verified user on Jul 10, 2022
Nice marina and great staff. Wish they had a car available as the town is across the channel away, but to far to walk by land. The Uber ride was 20 dollars one way and about a 10 minute ride.
by Don W. - Verified user on Jul 06, 2022
We made reservations 2 weeks prior. Received confirmation and given slip assignment. Instructions said to hail on 9 (dock hand said they don’t monitor 9 as it says in Dockwa) when arriving couldn’t get them on the phone or the radio. Left message, no call back. Finally after getting in touch, he told us that he didn’t have a slip, for us (at 3:00). Does not live up to their description. Lot of deferred maintenance.

Very accommodating with a great slip, explaining the layout and amenities, plus local knowledge of the surrounding area! I can't say enough good things about the whole atmosphere of that place, which he helps create. Rondout is a charming place to stop, with lots of character. Plenty of things to do too, if you have time to stay awhile? Pleasant!

Donovans is a great place to stop. The staff if very nice and helpful. The regulars are welcoming and the place is clean and nice. We like it as starting point for upstate trips since we trailer our little Albin trawler and they have a great ramp and good parking. And best of all, they have a very nice restaurant on site, Boathouse Grill, with a great patio overlooking the Hudson and nicely prepared food. Don’t miss out on the sweet and hot calamari with the fancy sweet drop fruits.

Just a great place with great people. They are probably the most service oriented marina I’ve ever been to. Nick and Andrew, the owners are truly dedicated.

The owners and staff are great. Everyone is both friendly and helpful. In fact we were booked at another marina for the return trip and canceled that reservation to come back to this Marina. This stop is highly recommended.
by Lynn P. on Oct 01, 2018
These people were WONDERFUL. We arrived after a long day of travel on the rough Hudson in incredibly strong, gusty winds in a 36' boat. They helped us wrestle her safely to the dock and managed other arriving boats similarly well. Nash, on the dock, pointed out to us that our dinghy, mounted on the on the stern of the boat, was not supported properly (a support had broken enroute in the rough waters) and immediately helped us get it fixed. The owner, Nick, took my husband to the local Home Depot to get a part needed for the repair and wouldn't accept payment for the ride. Others who keep their boats regularly at the marina stopped by to offer needed muscle or guidance or encouragement. What a wonderful experience! I highly recommend this marina to transients or to anyone else!

The location of this marina is great for visiting in the Kingston area. We rented a car and spent two delightful days visiting the FDR Home and Museum as well as Eleanor Roosevelt’s home at Valkill. The highlight of our trip was having lunch on both days at the Culinary Institute of America at Hyde Park.
Rondout Yacht Basin itself is beginning to show its age. The heads and showers were clean but out of date. The piers are in decent shape. Perhaps all the rain we had while here took some shine off the facility. The marina’s web site boasts a dockside cafe but it’s only a small snack stand with an awning covered eating area. To be fair, it was closed the whole time we were there so I can’t comment on the quality or extent of the menu.
The most frustrating part of this stay was contacting the marina upon arrival. The DockWa listing and my reservation confirmation both said to contact them on VHF Channel 9. I tried several times but got no response. When I called by phone all I got was an answering machine - but no response to the message I left. When I asked the person who finally met the boat after my second phone call, I was told that they don’t monitor Channel 9, but only Channel 16. I had tried that twice with no response as well. It’s very frustrating to bring a boat into a new port and new marina and not be able to contact anyone ashore until you’re already in sight of the fuel dock.

Owner met us on the dock. Docks are floating and look to be fairly new. Diesel fuel is a lot lower than advertised on Marinas.com. It was $2.30 with Boat US discount. A nice swimming pool, an area for horse shoes, volleyball, etc. a small bar & grill right on the dock. Dock hands were very helpful and friendly. Only thing is no store within walking distance and I didn't see any laundry facilities.
