Where do I Park my boat at State Dock? – The 2 rows normally used for the rental houseboats are not available for public parking. The first row is being utilized as Boatel Row and will have over 40 houseboats (boatels) for the Poker Run participants. The other row is reserved for boats entered in the Poker Run only. You must have a Poker Run Decal on the boat to park on this row. This will be strictly enforced. The other common areas of state dock are available for parking. Along the walk ways, etc. Fuel piers should be kept clear except after the ships store closes and we stop selling fuel. Late at night you can park there. NO SMOKING ON THE FUEL PIERS
What does it cost? – There is no charge to visit the docks and check out all of the incredible boats. Beginning at 6:00 PM a wrist band will be required to enter the boatel and entertainment areas. Wrist bands for both nights entertainment are $30 or $20 for one night.
Water Patrol and Law Enforcement: – The law enforcement agencies are always on high alert for the Poker Run. They will be patrolling the harbor on Friday and Saturday nights and normally have patrols and road blocks on Park Road. If you drink, don’t drive. Also, please keep all drinks in a cup or Coozie. Otherwise, you are drawing attention to yourself and asking for trouble.
Kid Friendly? – You must be 21 or accompanied by a parent to enter the boatel row and entertainment area. The parties and entertainment at night are not an appropriate place for children.
