The Charleston Ice Dock at the Charleston Marina provides high-quality commercial flake ice 24 hours daily to the commercial fishing fleet, Charleston businesses and recreational fishermen.  The ice is mixed with salt to lower its average temperature from 32 degrees Fahrenheit to 28 degrees, ensuring utmost quality and cooling capacity.  The Ice House holds up to 110 usable tons of flake ice, with a production rate of just under 2 tons per hour.  Currently, the ice dock provides the only large quantity, public commercial grade flake ice on the southern Oregon Coast!  Last year, the ice house produced approximately 7,000 tons of ice to recreational and commercial fleets.
