Memphis Bridge

Founded in 1902 as the Memphis Canoe Club, the Memphis Yacht Club operates the Mud Island Marina on the Wolf River Harbor off the Mississippi River. You'll enter our protected waters at Mile Marker 735.8 (GPS: 35º08.997N and 090º03.403W, or buy a navigational chart from theU.S. Corps of Engineers) below the "M shaped" I-40 bridge and above the I-55 bridge. Head north into the harbor at the historic cobblestone ramps and go north about ¼ mile. You'll see our docks on the left, just past the monorail.

If it appears we are full, please don't let that deter you. We can shift boats around and may be able to make room for yours! Please call ahead for detailed information and personalized service. We will strive to meet your needs.

We are the only fuel facility that has a dry dock and we can recommend service professionals for your boat. Offering both gasoline and diesel, we can accommodate vessels up to 135' in length for transient dockage. Our Marina Store is open from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. seven days a week, and offers a variety of items for your convenience, including bagged ice, beverages and snacks. Access to showers is also available and our friendly and helpful staff will work hard to make your stay enjoyable.

Dock your boat right alongside Mud Island River Park and "experience the River," a full scale model of the entire Mississippi River, from its origin in Minnesota to its muddy mixture with the salt waters of the Gulf of Mexico.
