We came in late in the day and received the last slip at this small but nice marina. We were able to easily tie up on the wall space assigned. There was adequate power and water. The docks were gated for extra security. We left early the next day without any delays. I would have enjoyed walking to one of the town’s couple of restaurants but this was just a stopover and fit the bill nicely. We did not find the shore facilities but I trust they were adequate as well.

nice dock with well maintained infrastructure, i.e. water electric, wifi, clean remote bathroom with shower, security gate. Very pleasant town with nice riverwalk.

Conveniently located for a stop in the middle of the trip across Okeechobee Waterway. While no staff on site the docking is very easy along a pier with power and water access. Quiet night with no traffic since the lock does not operate at night. Very fast internet. The Dockmaster is remote but very nice and responds quickly providing all the information needed.

Interesting stay. We did not know that we would be staying at an unmanned marina due to the “off season”. We had no reply on the radio and finally had to call to get an understanding of where we should dock. We were greeted by the most wonderful man who was obviously remote but was highly effective getting all squared away with everything we needed.

Easy to dock your boat. Nice covered picnic tables and great pool to cool off.
Bathroom and shower were clean. It’s a great stop off place between the locks.

This is my second year that I stayed a month at this Marina never a problem the owner is very nice and accommodating rare to have a swimming pool

They were just what we needed, a place to overnight with shore power on our way west. Turns out they were off season, so it was self-service. Pool was officially closed, but they let us in. Tie-up is alongside dock along the waterway, in a no-wake zone that most bypassing traffic adhered to. No real facilities (ice, fuel, showers, etc.) that I could determine. Would use again.

The gate to exit the dock was broken. We had to reach through to the other side to open it with the combination. The pool was great. The bathroom wasn’t great. It served our needs for an overnight stop.

A good overnight stop if you are crossing the Okeechobee Waterway, from West to East, just before you get to the Moore Haven Lock. Docks are in OK condition. Area surrounding the Marina is very nice

Currently doing the loop. Left my boat at Riverhouse for a month while I went home for the holidays. Boat rode well and was well looked after at about 1/3 the monthly rate of any marina on either coasts.

This is a great stop after crossing Lake Okeechobee. The price is right at $1/ft +$7.50 50 amp single. The older dock is narrow, but electric, water & wifi were good. Gated for added security. One older bath/shower for everyone. Bob, the owner, is there to help with lines if needed. Great stop for a night or two. Also wonderful bike ride along the Caloosahatchee.

We actually didn't stop this time, but I wanted to share the 5 star treatment we received from this marina!\n\nDue to Hurricane Nicole, we had to change our reservations a few times. Instead of canceling us, they allowed us to keep our place on the dock. They said if we canceled and rebooked, we might not have been able to get a reservation. \n\nAs we were approaching the final lock before the marina, the dockmaster called to check on our arrival. We discussed the fact that we might be able to make the next lock due to the time of day. The dockmaster talked us through the plan and we successfully made it shortening our next day's travels by almost 30 miles. \n\nThis is the type of compassion that we truly appreciate with a marina. We did ask they keep our paid fees as a thank you for all their help. It truly alleviated the worry associated with travel in today's crazy boat world. \n\nWe will stay with River House for years to come!

Bob the owner greeted us and helped us tie up. He is very nice. Docks are great and are gated so other people can get in. Bathroom needs a little work. Pool looked inviting even though we didn't take advantage of it. Would highly recommend staying there.

This place is a wonderful. Docks are in excellent condition. Power and water available. Very reasonably priced. There are stores within walking distance. There is an Eagles also within walking distance. Great steaks on Friday & Saturday night & Breakfast on Sunday morning. You won’t be disappointed at River House Marina!

A great alternative to Clewiston, docks are in great shape, good power and fair wifi. Nothing much to do, but the docks are set along a pleasant park just past the lock. Easy in and out, no tide, no current, little traffic.
by Tanya D. - Verified user on May 25, 2022
Convenient side tie (next to city docks). Not much around. Good overnight.
HAVEN FRESH (Mexican deli/some provisions) is just a mile or so from docks and food was delicious.
by Douglas S. - Verified user on Apr 28, 2022
Nice spot. Small, but everything works. Not much going on in the area, but that wasn’t a problem for us. No one around when you arrive to check you in or help with lines, but again no problem for us. Once we tied up, we got a call from the owner (?) and he texted us all the relevant info (gate code, etc.). He must have a camera or something because he called within minutes of our arrival. We couldn’t get the WiFi to work, but that could be operator error on our part. Would stay there again for sure.
by Joe C. - Verified user on Apr 03, 2022
Super convenient and easy to access face dock right outside of the Moore Haven Lock. The owner, Bob was very communicative before our arrival and he made sure we were tied up really well with big winds threatening. Use your phone when trying to hail him. Basic amenities and facilities (nice, clean pool, but we didn't use it). Nothing really to do there, but there is a great Riverwalk. It's residential, so don't think Tampa Riverwalk, but you and your dogs can really stretch your legs at this marina.
The best part of the visit was the trip to Haven Fresh. If you are a fan of Mexican Food, GO THERE! It is carry out and a grocery store only - no seating. It was the best burrito I have ever had. We both got el pastor and they were amazing. We also bought some chiles, produce, salsa and hot sauce. There's fresh meat that is seasoned, so you can take it back and make your own. I could go on and on. It's a 7 minute walk from the marina.
Definitely a great stop on your eastbound journey through the Okeechobee waterway.

A terrific stopover on an Okeechobee crossing. We stayed for years at the Moore Haven city docks for $1 a foot a night with electricity, but we now prefer Riverhouse at $1-$1.25. Power is extra. With the city dock you never know if there will be an open spot, but at Riverhouse you can reserve through Dockwa. Deepwater dock for larger boats, plus a second dock for smaller boats. Riverhouse has a pool and good WiFi. Bob, the owner, is attentive to his customers and flexible.

Pulled up and made about 6 calls between my wife and I and couldn’t get a hold of anyone. I pulled into an empty spot on the dock and asked my wife to check in. She tried to go but the gate to the dock (plus for security) was locked. She asked a person staying at the marina to let her out, but we met the biggest &$/)(?@& in boating who told my wife if you belonged here you’d have the code. We finally get a hold of someone on the phone and it’s all good we get the codes, we are in the correct spot, bathroom info and the layout of the town. The town is pretty small but we had a chance to hit a dive bar and at the suggestion of the marina we headed to the Eagle for dinner. The town was very friendly, the docks east to get to and a friendly community.

Bob, the marina manager could not be more helpful. Help coming in and help on departure. Even help driving us to pick up dinner.
Can’t say anything more tha if you are traversing the Okeechobee water this is a must stay!
Our apologize for the difficulty you had upon your departure. We do not have a full time dockmaster and rely upon phone communication to render assistance. Based on our conversation prior to your departure it was indicated we could be on site in twenty minutes to assist but, you indicated you could manage. We make every attempt to address our customers needs. We thank you for your stay and if you pass this way again we will be sure to address your needs. Safe travels, River House Marina.

We made our reservation in April for an arrival in mid-June. Unfortunately it got lost in translation that the pool and the bathrooms are closed in the summer so we arrived we had no one to greet us. However, Bob was awesome, he apologized for the mix-up, sent me the wifi code (which worked great) and the code to the locked gate. He even gave me a partial refund for the inconvenience. I was really impressed and would definitely stay there again when we transit the Okeechobee Waterway in the future.

Nice dock, good location. We were there off season so no amenities other than power and water but there was a security gate.

Exceptional communication from the dockmaster. Was happy to know we had a reservation instead of wondering if the City Dock would be full. No frills, but brand new docks with new power pedestals, wifi, place for dog to walk, and security gates - all for less than $50 - can't beat it.

Great place to stage your crossing Okeechobee. Nice, new sturdy docks. Bob, the proprietor, was extremely helpful in getting us tied up and secure for the storms coming through. Don’t miss the Eagles Club if you’re there on the weekend. Only suggestion is adding at least one more bathroom. Having only one available to boaters can be challenging.

What a pleasant experience. Bob, the owner, checked in with us to find out when we would be arriving and was on the dock to help out, even in the rain.
The dock is new, they take reservations through Dockwa and the price is reasonable.
Note that there was 14' at the dock where we were at. Please advise Bob if you need the depth.

Great stopover for a reasonable price on our transit through the okochobee waterway. Price per foot included electric 50 amp service, locked security gates and the owner \operator who assisted our tie up with a smile. No accessory services except restrooms, but i would not have expected them at this price and on this type of journey.

Second stay here, and we got to use the brand new dock! Excellent, 7-10 feet of depth dockside, just around the corner from the lock. Brand new power pedestals and wi-fi system. Highly recommended!

Nice dock, excellent location on canal right at the lake. Got there after closing and there was no answer after several rings calling posted phone number, was told by dock master later it rolls to another number so you have to let it ring I'm guessing at least ten times. The restroom/shower require a door lock code, was fortunate there was someone there that shared the number and where it was located. Would definitely stay there again, called the dock master later and squared up payment, he was very nice.

Update: The pool was much appreciated on this last visit due to the sudden heat. No other changes
The docks in one section have been repaired; we were secure and had good power. The shower/bath was refreshing with hot water. I usually use the pool, but it is not heated so only a summer thing. It went from blazing hot to a cold front so no pool needed this time.
