This was our 1st trip to Washington Island. Everything was wonderful from booking reservations, arrival, communications with marina & clean restrooms. It’s in the perfect location to walk to multiple restaurants & take out food. Will definitely be coming back!

Kaps is always good And the perfect place to experience Washington Island. Kevin, Keenan and Barb make sure you get in and are all settled with whatever you need and then they all help out at the restaurant, which is great. Great destination, so don't miss it!

Everyone at the marina was wonderful to deal with.....very friendly and helpful. We decided to stay an extra night. Breakfast at the marina restaurant was also great. Washington Island is a very relaxed, unique experience. We will be back and we'll stay at Kaps. Note: I like the location which is near the ferry boat dock. It's interesting watching all the activity with the boats. Rob/Lynne Sabre 48

We really enjoyed our Stay at Kaps! Friendly and courteous staff who went out of their way to make sure our visit was a great experience. Docks were in good shape, restrooms were clean. Bring a 50 to 30 Amp adapter if you require 30A service. They do have some to use. Also call on your phone as the VHF was down. We were able to rent a vehicle during our stay so we could check out the Island. Thank you Kaps! Annika Linne

This is a PERFECT island marina. These guys are on the ball and there for you every step of the way. I was very impressed with how attentive they were and accommodating. It is very quaint and friendly. I'm sure the beach is nice, but our weather was bad so we didnt get to use it. My 4 year old was able to play without me worrying because it's a dead end dirt parking lot. Restaurant had good food and at a great price. I really say say enough good things about this marina, and I cant wait to return again next year.

Staff were very friendly, personable and helpful. Enjoyed watching the ferries coming and going. Nearby restaurant, ‘The Ships Wheel’, made a great pizza. Enjoyed the nature preserve walking trails.

The staff at Kapps is great. Nothing to fancy, but was perfect for our trip. They were waiting for us when we pulled in. We were able to take a shuttle into town and had a great meal at Nelsons. The facility is smaller, but worth a stop if your want a local experience on Washington Island

This is probably one of the most well protected marinas on the Great Lakes. They just put in all new electric last year (2019) and there is a nice bathroom and shower building as well as an excellent restaurant. Town is 3 miles away but the marina has rental cars and bicycles. The marina is on a point with a great view of nearby islands, enjoy the relaxed setting, great food and watch the twinkling lights from the lighthouses and navigational buoys.

Great experience! Awesome location and very nice family run business!!

by richh04 on Aug 07, 2019
It’s rustic, real rustic. Like a youth hostel in Reykjavík. Dance 10, looks 3. Kevin and Barb were so accommodating and helpful. The bathrooms were clean. They are super pricy and it’s 3 miles to anywhere, minimum. However the marina rents cars and bikes. The restaurant seemed nice inside but didn’t have a chance to eat there.

Washington Island is amazing! God’s beauty at its finest. The marina itself needs some TLC but it fits right on with the island ambiance, natural and rustic. Kevin (owners son) was EXTREMELY hospitable and a great host.
Status: Open
