Great marina and location, Wouldn’t change a thing. I’m be there next season.

Great place to keep a boat. The entire property is maintained to the highest standards. Excellent restaurants are steps away.

Unattended. You are on your own.

Late in the season. Entrance channel a concern, very shallow, very narrow. Tied up to center dock, 43 ft American tug. Called and left messages with the Marina, no response. Tried VHF and no response. Thankfully electric was functioning on the pedestal but otherwise no personnel around. Porta John's available no pump out. Very nice location very nice facility but room for improvement.

Nice accommodations, really enjoyed the restaurants

The stay was nice. The marina has new modern docks. The cassino and food is close, grocery not so. My only complaint is the bathrooms which is a trailer.

Beautiful marina with many open slips but we could not get anyone by radio or phone as we sat out in a huge t storm not even sure if we could get a slip because Dockwa gave us the impression that it was full,

This was our first time staying at Mohawk Harbor, and I would say the overall experience was disappointing. I was contacted by MH a couple of times during the day to check on our arrival time. Since we were not going to arrive until early evening, they ley us know they wouldn't have staff available to assist us with docking. We had no issues with this, as we are experienced boaters and quite capable of safely getting into a slip. We were also texted the wi-fi instructions and restroom code. The condition of the restrooms on Friday evening was deplorable, with no toilet paper in many stalls. Getting hooked up to the wi-fi is beyond frustrating to say the least, and I was never able to accomplish this over a 2 evening stay, despite asking MH on Saturday TWICE for assistance. They seemed much more preoccupied with making sure all boats were duly checked-in and paid for, and never got around to offering any hands on assistance. I blame the entity that set up the wi-fi more than the staff, as it shouldn't require an IT specialist to connect to the damn internet. The good: *Excellent docks - these are absolutely first rate *Nearby bars/restaurants. Casino is also within reasonable walking distance The bad: *Fairly expensive considering amenities normally expected a marina facility are not available (there are no showers, no laundry facilities and no pump-out) *Overly complicated internet *Restrooms not adequately maintained Overall: I would not recommend recommend MH to transient boaters, as the amenities provided are extremely limited, especially for the price. There are a number of area boat clubs that offer a much better value along with the expected facilities. If you are attending Harbor Jam (as we were) or another event, then it would probably be worth the price. I believe MH is operated by the Donovan's, who are normally a first-rate operation. We've previously stayed with them at Shady Harbor and had an excellent experience there. I suspect the issues at MH are mostly related to constraints placed upon them by the property owners.

Great place dockmaster James does an excellent job!! Docks are fantastic

by Tim L. - Verified user on Jul 31, 2023
Nice facility and dock hands were attentive. They need showers for extended stays and a place to put garbage.

by Diane D. - Verified user on Jul 31, 2023
Nice harbor with a fantastic dock master. Nice bars, restaurants and casino near by. My only complaint would be the wi-fi that we were unable to connect to. Heard that complaint from another boater too.

by Andrew M. - Verified user on Jul 31, 2023
They have a beautiful marina, several restaurants, and very helpful staff.

Beautiful setting, great concert, amazing fireworks. James is also great.

by Otto M. - Verified user on Jul 31, 2023
Brian and James and the entire crew at Mohawk Harbor were, as always, spot on! It is always such a pleasure visiting. Their professionalism and expert management is incredible
Marina Response:
Thank you, but please, don’t make their heads any bigger. Seriously, James has grown into quite the property manager over the past couple of seasons. We are all proud of him. Glad you had a great time and we shall see you again.

by Christopher M. - Verified user on Jul 31, 2023
Beautiful facility. Only lacking showers and pump out but overall worth the stay. Great summer entertainment and restaurants with the casino well within walking distance.
Marina Response:
Thank you for the kind words. The word continues to spread of the greatness that Mohawk Harbor represents. That was evident this weekend. We continue to discuss your concerns about the lack of services and hope to have big news in the future.

by John L. - Verified user on Jul 31, 2023
Marina was very nice, restaurants and bars were excellent. The dock structures were perfect. The down side is the odd angle that the fingers are at, leaving only a portion of the stern to be utilized. Could also use a bath house. Would absolutely visit again

by Robert S. - Verified user on Jul 28, 2023
Once they finish it, it will really be an out standing place to stop. No pool, showers or laundry , no ships store.......the dock system is one of the best and secure systems in that part of the state. If they work that problem out I would stay again but not again at that price.

by Paul C. - Verified user on Jul 13, 2023
Nice facility but that’s where it ends. Portable toilets, no showers or pool. None of the other amenities advertised are available to boaters.

by Mark D. - Verified user on Jul 13, 2023
Terrible! State of the art docks, but no showers. Bathrooms were mobile porta- johns. No access to pool as indicated on web site. We felt duped by the advertisement propaganda. Casino was .5 miles away. Several folks in our flotilla got a room at hotel! Will not be back!
