MUSCATINE, Iowa – Boating on the Mississippi River is great summertime fun but the hassle of launching and recovering your boat every time you want to be on the river can take the fun away. A better option is available at reasonable rates.
The City of Muscatine Parks and Recreation Department has slips available in the Muscatine Boat Harbor. The harbor has 18 slips for houseboats and 64 slips for smaller, pleasure, and speed boats. Slips are non-covered and each one is equipped with electricity and water.
The harbor features a new long dock and gangway access with the houseboat docks replaced as needed during the spring and summer of 2017. The harbor was dredged in the fall of 2017. A new security camera system was added this spring along with a lockable gate for the houseboat docks.
With the brand new docking, gangway and security features at the Muscatine Municipal Boat Harbor, the time to reserve your 2018 boat slip is now. Stop in the Parks and Recreation office located in the lower level of City Hall to take advantage of the 2018 Boat Slip Rental program. Be sure to bring your boat registration, proof of insurance, and payment with you at the time of securing your slip for the 2018 season.
The marina also features a municipal gas dock located in the channel just outside of the harbor. Both gas and diesel are available from mid-May through mid-October. Also located at the gas dock is a pump out station which is free with fuel purchase or $5.00 without fuel purchase.
