I'm from Westport, about 18 miles up-river from the 'ville. Are you talking about the one at "Waterfront Park"?

Im not sure, the people that told me about it called it a public landing, they said i could dock there for the night and get a room at the Galt House hotel and be right in the bar district. Any help would be great, i would hate to get there and not be able to dock close to where we want to go.

I believe you are talking about waterfront park. It is on the wharf right upriver from where they dock the Belle of Louisville. There are approximately 10 or so spaces that are really nice. From there you are close to everything, the ball park, Galt House Hotel, Joe's Crab Shack. It would be a great trip, can't tell you if you can reserve a space. The park is beautiful.

I wasn't out this past weekend but i have to drive over it everyday, it didn't look to be that bad. We went out a couple weeks ago and although it wasn't that messy the current was running so strong we had a heck of a time getting back on our trailer at Smitt field.

If there's to much floating then we will be forced to cancel our trip, it's not worth a Herring or skeg to do the trip..

Thank for the input guy's..
is there a bar that is a "must visit" while we are there?

Go to 4th Street Live. You will have your pick. It has been quite some time since I have lived there but it was pretty happening back then.
