The Yards Marina

Washington DC, United States

Shopping, Dining and Ball Games at The Yards Marina in Washington D.C.

The Yards Marina is a fantastic family-friendly property located on the Anacostia River off the Potomac in the heart of Washington D.C. Sitting on the water's edge of the newly constructed Yards Park town center. This marina and its surrounding ecosystem have a little something for each family member to enjoy throughout your stay. Nationals Park is a quick walk away, so don't miss out on a ball game in the nation's capital.

Every amenity that you will need while traveling is either at the marina or within walking distance to your slip. Bike rentals, a picnic area, and a pool are all available to you nearby to the marina. Nearby you will find a Harris Teeter grocery store, hotels, plenty of dining options as well as fun upbeat bars. If you want to keep your fitness schedule on track, no worries! You will have access to day passes to a health club.

What's neat about The Yards Marina is that they are funded and operated by Living Classrooms, a non-profit organization that strives to make a difference in the lives of children in the Baltimore and Washington DC youth communities. By staying at this marina and enjoying all that the town center has to offer, you are contributing to the positive future of our nation's children!

FYI- I have given the marina the opportunity to fix this issue prior to my review but have received no response. The slip I was given was full of garbage causing my AC to cut out twice during the evening and my having to open the hatch and clean out the filter during the middle of the night. There were additional slips further out on the dock that were not occupied, we complained about the trash and were not offered these slips. I understand the garbage is not completely within their control but for $100 a night they should provide a slip free or garbage or alert boaters to the condition of the marina before accepting the reservation. I had a similar issue here earlier this season. The wharf is looking like a value at this point.

A Note from the Marina:

We were sorry to read this review and that this boater was unhappy with their stay. We have connected with this boater regarding their experience, to go through the review and to get feedback for improvement. It is a shame that debris ended up in the slip, resulting in a poor experience. Unfortunately, due to weather conditions, many local rivers and tributaries are experiencing an increase in debris. Consequently, we do have some debris floating in and out of slips. While we aim to remove debris as we see it, we missed some in this case. The boater asked to be relocated further down the dock to a different set of slips, but unfortunately there were no other available transient slips on that dock. The open slips referred to in this review are held under annual contracts. We did offer the boater an option to move docks into open transient slips that were free of debris, however the boater chose to stay in their original spot, near a friend. We are happy to report that this issue has been solved offline and that the boater plans to return to the Yards in the future. We look forward to welcoming this vessel back to our docks so that we can deliver the great experience that all boaters deserve.

Brian and his crew were extremely helpful and courteous. If it would not have been for them I would have given a lower rating. We were extremely disappointed in the bathhouse. The bathrooms were being shared/used by the club next door in the evening. There was a line of people waiting to use the facilities. The next morning when we went back the bathrooms were disgusting and unacceptable.

Docks in great shape and visually kept up. Bathrooms barely air conditioned. Shower head broken. Staff (when there) extremely friendly and helpful.

The dock hands were very helpful.The shower area needs an exhast fan and a shelf and hooks to hang your stuff. There is no where to put your things in the shower except on the sink or on the floor.

Brand new Marina. Two blocks on Yards waterfront walkway to Nats Stadium. Outstanding staff. Secure with dock gate code from Dockmaster . Wonderful floating docks. Easy approach in Anacostia R., DC. Plenty of depth. Only drawback is no toilets/showers til Fall 2017. Once they are up and operating, will be 5 stars. We will be back. Capt Rick McHarg, EAGLE ONE, Sea Ray 450 EB
