Village Street dock, also known as the Richard H. Rockett Landing, is a boat landing in Marblehead facing into Salem Harbor. Paddlers must enter the water from the boat ramp. Both beachs on either side of the ramp are private property. A portable restroom is available.


Village Street Parking

Village Street provides a large lot that fills up quite quickly in the summer months. One can drop off a boat at the head of the dock before parking or can park and carry. The distance from the lot to the dock is very short.
