Salem Yacht and Boat Club is located about 4 miles west of Salem, on Highway 22, by the intersection at Doak’s Ferry Road.

From the private ramp at the club, there is nearly 4 miles of river to play in — water that is mostly inaccessible from any other ramp.

We currently have 85 active members, with a maximum of 85. New applications are taken throughout the year to build a waiting list. Beginning in January each year, openings are filled on a first-come, first-serve basis. At this time, there are 22 applications on the waiting list.  If you are interested in joining the Salem Yacht and Boating Club, please complete our online application.
