Stop at the Golconda Marina to refill your boat or restock on refreshments, snacks, or bait without leaving the Ohio River. The Golconda Marina is a great stop for ice cream and live music at certain times of the year. Great parking right on the Ohio River Shoreline makes your vehicle accessible without walking too far. Need a boat? Rent a fishing or pontoon boat from the Golconda Marina. This Southern Illinois portion of the Ohio River is a popular spot for services during the many Bass tournaments that occur at the Smithland Pools from early April to mid-October. Golconda Marina has the largest boat ramp in Southern Illinois and can accommodate boats of all sizes.
