Something not right?

Description

Class B and truck campers only. Park in the parking lot by the restaurant. Plenty of Parking. This is a public marina with public bathrooms and water spigots. The bathrooms and showers are on the south side blue trailers. Ask any of the yachties for the shower or laundry door code which is for the liveaboards, but everything is relaxed here. Fast wifi if you can get the code from them. Nice shaded picnic tables by the bathrooms with 110v and wifi by the blue trailers. There are tow away signs in a separate parking lot on the south side, but I heard they have never towed anyone in 20 years. Can do fishing and dive charters from this marina. Watch them clean and feed the day's catch around 5pm to the 50lb Jacks that live under the docks. "Right Hook" fishing charters is $60 half day very personalized. Summertime Tip: Take the Peanut Island water taxi ($15 round trip, 5 min ride) and go snorkeling for the day on the reef a few hours before HIGH WATER (low water has poor visibility). Plan your trip around the high tide! Take yr own mask and fins. Winter months may require a 3mm neoprene top. It will be really clear with tons of tropical fish just like the Bahamas and the Keys. sometimes better. Can walk around the island in 30 min. The Kennedy war bunker is there (inside closed 2020). Water taxi runs every 20 min. The marina has 24 hour security, stay in your vehicle at night.

I came back to this spot after three years and still a great place to park overnight with no issues. Stay respectful and stealthy so it can continue to be an option. The ferry to the island is a $12 roundtrip ticket which is absolutely worth it for the day.

Arrived around 9:00 p.m. in my stealth SUV camper to a relatively empty lot next to the Tiki restaurant. there were a few other stealth campers and Van lifers. check-ins from others are accurate. although Riviera Beach is known for its extreme homelessness, zombie apocalyptic like drug addicts and high crime rate, I was not bothered at all.. great marina, hi and Yachts and a water shuttle that'll take you over to Peanut Island for a day outing. I will be back.!!!

Stayed the night here. The parking lot right next to the Tiki does not have any tow or “no overnight camping” signs. Was a very good spot for the night. It’s patrolled at night and no one bothered us. Pretty quiet except for a few trains coming through town early morning. Bathrooms located on other side of Tiki were locked in the early am and a lot of homeless over on that side. Again, no one bothered us and it was a great location for the night.

Quiet, empty, Deff only under 22-23ft rigs. No issues, no signs. Woke up and police were parked around for what appears to be routine hanging out and they let me be. Arrived about 8pm left 9am

Stopped by to check out the Sunday market they had going on and get a bite to eat, this area is very dangerous and has a very high crime rate. Please keep that in mind if you are staying here.. be careful, lock your vehicles.. lots of homeless people around

Am I the only one who is weirded out by the stark contrast between the neighboring parks? It's not segregation, but a clear distinction between races, and classes. Then they have the audacity to celebrate junetenth since they tolerate others. Many relock their cars as I walk through the parking lot and the only diversity is the people working for them. A rich Marina in a poor area with several homeless. Watch out for someone undercover trying to sell you blue drugs or the noise makers coming through at 2am.

loud music playing and a well lit parking lot but it’ll do for one night. if you’re sensitive to noise you might not want to stay here, not sure if it’s usually like this or it’s an event. it’s 10:30pm now

There’s a fun tiki bar at this marina. Chat up some of the regulars here. They probably live in the boats docked here. We stayed two nights. One in the paved parking lot but with solar cells, we decided to move across the street in the grass Event Parking lot the second night. We heard that the $5 Peanut Shuttle boat which takes you across to Peanut island is a worthy way to spend the day. There are public restrooms open during the day but lock up at night.

Stayed overnight with no issues. I even got a hot shower by asking someone the bathroom code. This is a must stop place! Take the ferry over to the island for $12 and go snorkeling/enjoy the beach.

Got here early in our Transit and took a bike ride. Got some real LA vibes (run down businesses, a lot of homeless) and Googled it. Riviera Beach has a very high crime rate.

We left around 6pm. Shower code is 50147#

We stayed 3 nights no problem.
