We have just welcomed a new marina partner to the Snag-A-Slip family and we’re so excited to spotlight them. It may be hard to spell sometimes, but we will get the hang of it. Say hello to Appomattox Boat Harbor in Colonial Heights, Virginia!
Appomattox Boat Harbor has been family-owned and operated for over 40 years and boasts a relaxed atmosphere “where every day feels like Saturday!” The property resides along the Appomattox River on 15 acres surrounded by beautiful Virginian forests. With 50 slips along the area’s longest and widest ramp (open 24 hours), you will have 24/7 access to awesome boating and fishing adventures. Slip offerings include 25 and 30 foot finger slips. Appomattox Boat Harbor also has land storage and covered storage enclosed in the fenced in yard.
This tributary of the James River is the perfect destination for fisherman looking to find large/smallmouth bass as well as the Kentucky spotted bass! These species aren’t native, but were actually introduced in the 1970s. Striped bass and walleye, however, are year-round and local inhabitants that boaters can try their hand at wrangling.
If you’re not out exploring the area’s amazing boating and fishing locations, the marina has amenities to keep you entertained. Hang out at Appomattox Boat Harbor’s Club House with a bar and game room or take a dip in the marina pool to cool off on those hot summer days. All slips include access to the pool, and you’ll definitely want to take advantage. Virginian summers can get HOT! Appomattox Boat Harbor also has a festival area that is home to the local “Harbor Blast” Concert Series! making it a great place to catch some live music. Grab a bite or drink with friends at the Appomattox Boat Harbor Tiki Bar or host a BBQ down by the water in the picnic area. There is definitely something for everyone at Appomattox Boat Harbor.
