Spent a night at Dowry Creek on our way back North. We stop in Fall and Spring. Marina is nearing completion of renovations with new docks and power. Staff is outstanding, very professional, friendly and helpful. They have a car you can borrow to run to grocery store or restaurants. We enjoy the peace and solitude of Dowry Creek Marina. The approach is very easy.

Hunkered down in Dowry Creek Marina to wait out the winter storm before proceeding to Oriental. This is great marina with easy access, with very attentive and accommodating staff. Good WiFi signal. No ATT signal here and Verizon has only 1 to 2 bars.
Laundry is free! Courtesy car available if you need to make a run to town. They have little store on premises with your basic bread, butter, eggs, beer and snacks ...
Should you desire to step off the boat and catch up with the latest news or watch a movie there is a club house set up like a family room.

There are good marinas, great marinas and perfect marinas. Dowry's is a perfect marina. Good approach markers, great staff and a wonderful family-run operation. Like a mini-resort, great swimming pool, lounge, free laundry, super clean restrooms and showers and a Mercedes loaner car with AC and power windows that actually work! Second time there, will return again sometime.

Easy clear approach. Very clean facility, attentive owners. Docks are in good repair. Nicole was on the dock waiting for us when we arrived. She was very helpful with the lines, etc. Nice pool, courtesy car to get groceries if the on site store does not have what you need. This is a worthwhile stop with easy access for fuel, pump out and overnight. Protected and quiet. It would be a lot of fun for a group of boaters or flotilla as there is a lovely great room with all the comforts for “gathering”. Another reviewer reported WIFI problems, but we had good signal and speed. I will absolutely give them my business again next spring. Thank you Zeltner family!
