We had our 2008 Carver hauled out & we keep it on the hard there for 3 months. Had some prop & other minor work done. From Jennifer in the office to the guys in the shop & on the dock, they are amazing to work with! And at very reasonable costs! We'll be back for sure!

They were out of diesel fuel so we had to go somewhere else. I had advised the day prior that we needed 400 gallons, and was told they had diesel - so I didn’t fuel up before heading to Point Lookout.

Snag-A-Slip reached out to the marina manager for further comment but did not hear back regarding this review.

PLM told me on the telephone there were no slips available. A day later I successfully made an online reservation for 8/5/2023. Dock, power, electric and services were fine. Jelly fish were thick and small requiring a complete flush of my AC system within 4 hours of arrival. A mess.

A Note from the Marina:

We are very sorry that we could not accept your reservation initially. The minute we found out others had cancelled for that day we called to let you know. The jelly fish issue ... Well we don't like them either. Thank you for staying with us and maybe you can come back again.

Great friendly and reasonable marina - very helpful dockhand. Small craft advisory on Potomac the night we were here, very calm and protected here. the Bathrooms are good and clean. Very pet friendly - grassy areas to walk with little traffic and garbage cans for the necessary cleanup. Pool is in a great grassy area - we didn't use but looked nice. On site restaurant looks great but we went down the road a bit to try Courtneys Seafood - a bit of a dive but great local rockfish.

We stopped for fuel(3.90 for diesel) and decided to stay. Very quiet and undisturbed. Showers decent; restaurant around corner- 11min walk; free bike use made it 4 minutes to Pier 450. Fantastic place in and outside. Another place called Courtney's and marina to have place open soon. Interesting Confederate Cemetery 6 miles on bike; state park another mile and lighthouse. Young man helped us with lines etc with a smile!

This is an old, but really nice marina. The staff is great and the location is perfect. It is very quiet, so no boat club boaters cutting you off or making a ruckas. The restaurant is still closed, but you can go up the road or river to eat a great meal.

Picked this marina for a resupply stop (as WG indicated they had a courtesy car). No Courtesy Car anymore. Town 3 mile away, No Uber/taxi. Only real "store" in town was a Dollar General (not great for a supply run). Unable to get quarters for the laundry. Restaurant shut down (short term issue). Ended up kind of stuck in the middle of no-mans-land with no supplies.

We did have one of the best burgers ever at a "dive bar/diner" 1 mile walk South and west. at Courtney's Restaurant-Seafood

Over all, marina seems to be slightly run down and "alittle tired looking"

A Note from the Marina:

Courtesy car listing has been removed.

I loved this marina. I tied up here for a couple days for rest. The channel getting into the marina area is quite narrow. It was a little bouncy getting in, and there was some traffic. Go slow and you’ll be fine. The restaurant is amazing! The pool is a nice feature as well. I will definitely stop again.

Nice people, allowed us to come in and dock after hours. Pump out and fuel the next morning - opened later than most other marinas we've used. Outstanding feature: Chef Andy's crab cakes at the Sunset Restaurant behind the marina (seems to be part of the same enterprise). Absolutely the best ever, and Chef Andy said that he has recipes even better than that one. We were delighted to find Point Lookout Marina, coming in late on a 700 mile delivery down the east coast. It's exactly what we needed!

A very friendly staff in a well sheltered location. It was off season so the restaurant was closed but the slips were nice and well maintained. The only reason for not giving 5 stars was the bathrooms and showers were a bit of a walk, but we’d stay there again.

There was a slight mix up over what power we needed and when we arrived at 5 the only slip available was 17‘ wide and we are 15.5 so twas a wee bit tight and we couldn’t get a consistent power connection. But the people who work there were very friendly and tried every way to help us. I would go back again.

Wonderful marina, docks in great shape, but... it’s the second time we’ve been here and the very narrowly dredged channel is full of crab pots, including a line squarely though the narrowest part, with less than 20 feet berth. Discussed it with the marina staff (as they also also have crab potters there) and they don’t care. The channel is simply not navigable, which is a shame.

7/27/18. We were anchored in Smith Creek when thunderstorms hit. Coast Guard/NOAA reports called for more through the night. While we have ridden out many a storm on the hook, we were concerned about having to start the engines and wrapping up a crab line in the dark. We called Point Lookout Marina and Jennifer welcomed us. She gave recommendations as to the best slips considering the conditions and added that we could pull in to any open spot that we could safely maneuver. Then she walked the long dock to help us in 30kt winds. Thank you!
