Setting — At the mouth of Northeast River at Hance Point, Jackson's extensive and professionally-managed dockage rings two basins. An almost closed "C" shaped peninsula, part of which is a paved parking area, creates a keyhole interior basin; an outside basin adds another set of riverside docks. Two sets of slips are covered. The top of the "keyhole" is a broad, grassy area and a wedge-shaped sandy beach right on the river.

Marina Notes — Very service-oriented; in business since 1954. The owner, Woody Jackson, lives on-site. A Mercury repair facility open six days a week, with 6 Mercury-certified technicians. Large dry-stack storage operation that manages up to 31 ft. LOA. Remarkably large and well-stocked ships' store. The Canvas Shop is also on-site (967-0009) along with a new boat showroom. The white cinderblock building, in the parking area between the two basins, houses the Galley snack bar and the basic bathhouse. Bay Boat Work's pump-out boat (287-8113).

Notable — The Galley has picnic tables inside and out and is open for breakfast and lunch, usually Thursday through Monday starting at 7:30am. There's a great picnic pavilion (and charcoal grills) between the two basins, just past the first set of covered slips. It's named for the service manager who has been there for 30 years and is responsible for the extraordinary parts department. Adjacent is a nice wooden play gym enclosed by a white picket fence. The nearest market is Weaver's Plum Creek Market and Liquor Store. The shops of North East are a bit of a hike up river and require a cab - but the village is worth it. At Day Basket Factory (287-6100) artisans weave split oak baskets. The Nauti-Goose restaurant has dockage for patrons - walk to the museum from there.
