Great overnight. Side tie-up in front of museum. Docks are in good shape. Museum is worth a tour, a lot of history happened here. Great dinner and vibe at the Ship to Shore restaurant.

Jim, the Dockmaster was EXCELLENT! He went out of his way to advise us about the currents, tides, and how best to tie up. He even telephoned us when we were about an hour away to give us a heads up about some logs floating in the river. The facilities were in good shape. Bathrooms and showers clean and nice. BEST wi fi we have ever had at a marina! And the town of Kingston was very pretty and very walkable. We ended up staying 2 extra nights because we liked it so much. 10 stars for Jim, his staff, and the marina.

Dockmaster Jim was very helpful and accommodating at our arrival, bathroom and shower facilities are very modern and clean. Always lots of interesting activities going on on their waterfront, and in the museum, so is a great place for boaters to relax and enjoy, and is only a short walk to great restaurants.

It’s a wonderful spot. We were met by a very gracious host who provided a map of the area, dining recommendations, a code to the very clean bathroom/shower facilities, and an offer to tour the interesting museum.

Wonderful stay, highly recommend! Jim was very helpful in helping us docking and orientating to the area. Close to several excellent restaurants and coffee / donut shop.

Small, quiet and accommodating. Floating dock, close proximity to restaurants, clean modern bathrooms, good power and water pressure. Everyone was friendly, helpful and very accommodating to our needs.

Very nice dockmaster and location was great.

by Donald S. on Aug 16, 2023
This is the third time this year that we docked here. Each time Jim,dock master, has been absolutely wonderful. He picks up phone immediately and calls back if there is a problem on the creek. Would not want to dock at any other marina on the creek. Docks are clean and easy on-off from boat. Great marina! Ina& Don on Take It E-Sea

Dockmaster Jim is so nice it is refreshing. Great marina and museum.

by Arthur A. - Verified user on Aug 13, 2023
Very nice facility and admission to museum is included with your dockage. Museum is small but well done! We didn't dine out but did walk into town (short walk). Several nice looking restaurants and a wine bar. Good stop.

Jim the Dockmaster was so helpful with helping us secure our boat, and explaining all that there was to do in Kingston

by Douglas M. - Verified user on Aug 03, 2023
Beautiful area, close to restaurants. Very quaint, museum and boat building shop on site. The staff was helpful and make an extra effort to make you feel comfortable. Just wish docks were more secure at night. Could use more lighting and maybe cameras at night since the docs are very open to the public. The short walk to the bathrooms has stones and is not private or well lit. The men’s and women’s bathrooms (entry by keypad) both have a single shower each and overall the facilities are adequate.
Marina Response:
Thank you for your review, Douglas. Your suggestions are appreciated. We are in the process of setting up more cameras and adding lighting to the walkway to the bathrooms. We are always open to suggestions on how to make everyone's stay here enjoyable and safe. Sincerely, Liz Feser Finance and Operations Manager

The staff, Jim, is terrific - very knowledgeable and very friendly! Took a tour of the museum with Jim - excellent, highly recommended!

Wonderful. The Hudson River Maritime Museum is a must see. Jim is fabulous!!!

by John P. - Verified user on Jul 31, 2023
To start, I don't give five stars to marinas with out pools. That being said: the booking process was easy. The dockmaster helpful; the town had charm and there were good restaurants close by. We are 55' trawler with single screw. We got in with help at floor, left at slack without help, and enjoyed our stay. The museum is definetly worth it.

by Bob P. - Verified user on Jul 30, 2023
Excellent stay, great location, friendly staff. Free museum admission was a great perk!

by Matthew K. - Verified user on Jul 30, 2023
Easy docking, nice showers, interesting museum with fun town and plenty of yummy restaurants within steps.

One of my favorite spots to stay. So deeply steeped in history.

by Scott P. - Verified user on Jul 14, 2023
Should only give 1 star so everyone doesn’t want to come here. Best place to stay in Kingston. 1st time visitors should take the time and visit the actual museum and check out the light house when they are running tours.
