Amenities within Colington Harbour include a huge sound side park with sandy beaches, a playground, and sheltered picnic areas, a basketball court, as well as a boat launch and boat slips for rent. For a nominal fee, residents may also join the Yacht and Racket Club, which allows use of the two outdoor swimming pools, tennis courts, and community clubhouse.
Frequently Asked Questions
1. What is the difference between the Colington Harbour Association, Colington Harbour Yacht & Racquet Club, and the Colington Yacht Club?
Colington Harbour Association: All homeowners are automatically a member of the homeowners association and must pay yearly dues levied by the Association.
Colington Harbour Yacht & Racquet Club: An optional membership available to all homeowners but not required. Separate dues are paid each year, and membership entitles use of the club facilities including the pool, clubhouse, and tennis court.
Colington Yacht Club: Another separate organization that requires a separate membership from either of the above. Again, membership is not automatic, but optional. Separate dues are also paid to this organization.
2. How do I join the Yacht & Racquet Club?
Applications are available for download at www.chyrc.org and hard copies are also available at the clubhouse on the wall to the right as you enter the building.
3. If I am a Yacht & Racquet Club member, can I bring guests to the pool?
All guests of homeowners are welcome to use the club facilities with a member provided the guest is not a resident of the Harbour. There is a one time fee available for homeowners that entitles unlimited guests for the summer, and that information is included in the membership application or renewal form.
4. Can I rent the clubhouse for a special function?
As a member of the Yacht & Racquet Club, you are entitled to rent the clubhouse for special activities (e.g. birthday parties, wedding receptions, and other group gatherings) for a nominal fee and after an application process. If you live in Colington Harbour, but you are not a member of the Yacht & Racquet Club, you can still rent the clubhouse, but the fee is at a non-member rate. For the price of a membership, you can join at the time of your rental application and then rent the facility for the member price. You get the added benefit of becoming a club member for the same price as a non-member rental.

5. Can I rent the pool for a private party?
At this time, we do not rent the pool for private parties.
6. How do I rent the pavilion in the park?
Contact the Association office (252-441-5886) to reserve the pavilion. There is a nominal fee, and it is not available for reservations on holidays.
7. How do I get a key to the tennis courts?
You can buy a key for $3.00 if you are a Club member. If you don’t have a key, you can get one from the Association office or after hours at the pool during the summer.
8. What about Friday night cookouts?
These are available when volunteers will run them. The turnout has been positive enough for the Club to consider offering these sunset cookouts as a weekly activity for all club members. Stay tuned.
9. What are the pool hours?
They are posted at the pool.
10. Who is covered by my family pool membership?
Only immediate family is included with a basic family membership. Additional family members (i.e., parents, siblings, cousins, children older than 21, grandchildren, etc.) require an additional fee. Full-time students under 24 years of age, are included; however, once a child turns 18 and is no longer a full-time student, he/she must purchase an individual pool membership.
