Newport City Dock
The City Dock is an important hub connecting visitors to our city's Main Street and Downtown area. Boaters from northern Vermont and Canada can find a number of amenities including restrooms, access to the bike path, a public launch and courtesy dock, benches, picnic shelter and other conveniences like retail gasoline, ice and lake maps. Services include boat washing station, pump-out station and zebra mussel registration. The harbor is also home to the Us Customs Boarder Patrol Checkpoint, Newport Natural Chowder Shack, Northern Star Lake Cruises and the nearly 100 year old Memphremagog Yacht Club. The City of Newport manages numerous seasonal and transient dock slips and three mooring fields at the City Dock.
With full hook-ups and sites large enough to house boats up to 40', the Newport City Dock is a popular seasonal destination for many water travelers. Slips include power, water, access to wifi, private bathrooms and showers. With three mooring fields, a large lake pier and finger docks, the city can house up to 100 boats with many slip holders living on their vessels throughout the season. For non-motorized boats, the dock provides a canoe and kayak storage area, parking and an accessible boat launch. The City Dock is open May through October, with dock staff available from 8:00AM-6:00PM daily, weather permitting.
