Westrec is doing a great job tackling a back log of deferred maintenance that they inherited from the State of Illinois. Also doing a great job bringing events and activities to the marina since it is indeed a ways out of town.

I was assigned slip AB 23, only problem was a boat was already in it.

Well protected, municipal marina. Nice, modern marina with laundry and clean showers. Well run and nice people.
As with most marinas, don't bother with trying to raise them on the VHF.

Nice marina, but needs some maintenance, such as decking replacement, paint on dock gates, & grounds beautification.

We love Northpoint! The docks are great, bathrooms clean, property key up, pool nice, and everyone is friendly. We love that they had planned Venetian Night and had tents and fun things for kids to do. Love it here and we look forward to getting a full-time slip here next year.
Thank you for the wonderful review, we look forward to having you full-time next season. We believe your review meant to say "Docks"

OK marina that is absolutely huge and very reasonably priced for transients. Tropics is a nearby restaurant that we really enjoyed. Although the facilities were nice enough, there were a great many items that prevent me from giving a higher rating including:
1) The docks are covered in a slime/mold of some sort and in need of power washing
2) Our shore power cord of the correct amperage physically couldn't fit into the dock box, so a kind neighbor lent us his cord
3) The code we were given didn't work and the marina had to reset the locks after a lot of back and forth with the office
4) Despite being assured that the channel depths were fine for a sailboat, we actually bumped the bottom when leaving the marina after giving way to an incoming power boat (we draw 5'8"), so pay very close attention to the markers as we were fine coming into the marina
5) The marina isn't close to downtown, so you'll have to Uber if you want to explore
Generally speaking, this marina has a ton of potential. My two cents is management needs to find a way to get the harbor full (looks to only be 1/3 - 1/2 capacity) and invest some of the increased revenue back into the marina.

you guys are doing a GREAT JOB !!!!!! From the office people to the people cleaning the bathrooms - GREAT JOB !!!
Just a fyi ... the rub rail is hanging down near the boat ramps where its reserved for law enforcement and the south sink in the restroom near f dock wont quit dripping.
cant wait to come back ..

The bathrooms are always dirty and the fan in the womens restroom is never on and the chain to turn it on is too high to reach. I think if the fan was on it would prevent mold from growing in the showers. Also the docks need to be power washed the docks are covered with yellow mold.- no it is not paint. The pump out docks on the end of c and d need to be powerwashed and you need to do something about the pigeons. They are quite dirty animals.

Docks are not clean, covered with dead moss which tracks on the boat.

Bathrooms are clean; docks are nice; the rate is excellent.

The marina is well-maintained. I would have appreciated more information about the facilities. For example, the nearest restrooms were confusing at first due to public access. Additionally, although I had requested assistance with 50-30 amp conversion well ahead of arrival, staff had to "find" the cable and it did not fit anyhow. A nearby boater lent us the correct cable and I returned the wrong one right away. Lastly, knowing the office was so far away would have been helpful. The walk was fine but I would have worn better walking shoes.

Had a great time with the folks on B dock! Met several yacht club members.

This stay was great however you never responded to my last review when I was unable to make my reservation.
Does someone read and respond to these reviews>

Beautiful marina! Very reasonable rates, with free self-serve pump out, and fuel readily available at Skipper Bud’s next door. Great lakefront restaurant/bar, Tropics, literally about a 100 yard walk from our transient slip on E Dock, in the Skipper Bud complex. Carried two 10# bags of ice, $2 each, back from the restaurant. Perfect!

This was a great marina, very clean and easy to get around. We had lunch at the tropics, it was also great.

Great Marina, Great people working there! Not a fan of DOCKWA ! This is there new online slip reservation site. They didn't give slip # and code until I asked for it. They put us in the WORST spot possible, they should fill slips by gates first, not as far away from gates as humanly possibly first! Should ask if we have a slip preference in request

No one on the phone could handle a transient slip assignment. I was told "this is a big process". Then, during their big process, I specifically asked for a slip with 50 amp power and was given a slip with 30 amp. Called the marina and again had to wait a half an hour to get reassigned through an email. Most unprofessional experience ever. Could not wait to leave in the morning. Oh by the way the one place to get food is about a half mile away. Pray for good weather if your walking.
