Setting — The landmark Summit North Bridge marks the entrance to this large, quiet marina protected by high bluffs. Just off the Canal, surrounded by Lum's Pond State Park, the floating, vinyl-edge docks literally fill the basin. There's no development, just trees and marsh. A floating boardwalk runs the full length of the basin; docks radiate from it. A pool, backed by a 2-story cream-colored stucco restaurant and bathhouse, perches on a hill overlooking the basin.

Marina Notes — *Weekends $2/ft. Well-designed floating docks (with wide, full-length finger piers) are being replaced with grooved mahogany, screwed-down decking. Corner insets create trapezoidal slips, making room for dock boxes, pedestals, and walkways. Docks go from "A," at the basin's head, to "I" at the entrance from the canal. They are varying lengths and include some double-wides for cats. The cut for the ramp that leads to the restaurant and pool is between "C" &" D" dock. On the north side of the eatery, a keycoded bathhouse entrance has six very nice individual, fully-tiled bathrooms and a small laundry room. Another set of heads is near "A" dock, along with a small ships' store, the office, two picnic tables, a parking lot, haul out and dry storage.

Notable — The basin, part of the C&D Canal before it was straightened, is owned by the state and leased to the marina. Captain's Cove restaurant overlooks the pool; for water views, move to the patio which sports a rope fence and lighthouse sculptures. Lunch all day, dinner, specials on weekends, and 36 varieties of beer. A banquet room seating 80 makes this an interesting club cruise venue. Entertainment Fri & Sat 7-11pm, Sun 4-8pm: easy-listening, dance & beach music. Less than a mile away, a boat ramp provides the nearest access to Lum's Pond State Park and steps lead up to the trails.
