MUSCATINE, Iowa – The Muscatine Municipal Boat Harbor and Gas Dock officially opened for the 2019 season this week as the Mississippi River returned to her banks following three months of flooding.
The Gas Dock, located on the Muscatine riverfront in the channel just upriver from the Muscatine Boat Harbor, is set to open Friday (June 28) according to the City of Muscatine Parks and Recreation Department. The Gas Dock will begin serving customers at 5:00 p.m. on Friday, June 28, and will have both gas and diesel available along with pump out service for boaters.
The Gas Dock is open 5-7 p.m. on Fridays and from 12-4 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays, weather permitting. Fuel is also available during the weekdays by calling the Parks and Recreation office at (563) 263-0241 between the hours of 8 a.m. and 3 p.m.
Slip rentals are also available from the Parks and Recreation Department, and the Muscatine Municipal Boat Harbor is the perfect place to store your boat for the season. Visit the Parks and Recreation Department office in the lower level of City Hall at 215 Sycamore to reserve your slip.
For more information, please contact the Muscatine Parks and Recreation Department at (563) 263-0241.
