Default Dockless

The work on my boat was complete to day so I picked it up and stopped by Priest off Bell Rd. I was surprised to see there was no dock... What's up with that ?

I parked the boat on the ramp appose to the rocks as it was late in the afternoon and only one other boat there.

Is there any launch sites around Priest that have a dock ?

Nashville Shores has a dock. It's an $8.00 launch fee.

At winter pool, you'll see a lot of the docks high and dry or close to it. 7 points will be this way.

Long Hunter is in good shape.

I'm assuming you were at Hamilton Creek Rec area. There is certainly no dock there, but if you use the ramp between Elm Hill Marina (no public launch) and Hamilton Creek Rec area, there is a dock. It also has an $8 launch fee that you can pay cash or use a card and has good security as well as good lighting for night use. If you're coming from I-40, it is the next left after Elm Hill Marina. I believe it's called "Safe Harbor". The dock is not very useful right now due to winter pool, but will be better as soon as the water comes up.
