This is a work in progress. Facilities are very rough. They have gas, diesel and 30 amp electric. New owners Fran and Bill are working hard to make this a good stop. They couldn't be nicer.
Thank you, David, Jacob, and I are glad you could stay with us on your travels.

The wall was secure and the owners were on the job working hard to make cherry the stay was good. There are picnic tables and we grilled out with other loopers. Can’t wait to see what they do with the place down the road.
Thank you! We can't wait to see what we do too! Enjoy your trip and safe travels!

Fantastic marina. The new owners are doing it right.
Friendly,safe, most anything you need is a short walk away.
One thing I'd add is water for the boat on the wall.
Thank you! We appreciative that! We should have the water over to the wall by next spring!!

Great little place for a stop over. New owners were very helpful and are working to add amenities. Plenty of water for deep draft vessels on the old lock wall. No drinking water there yet but plenty of 30 amp power.
Thank you for staying with us! Safe travels!

This is a very nice family owned and operated harbor! You couldn’t ask for better people to run a place like this! They are working relentlessly to get the place back into tip top shape, as they are new owners, and I can appreciate that!
Thank you so much, It’s a labor of love. we enjoy getting to meet all the great people that come through.
Thank you for staying with us!
Enjoy your journey and Prayers for your safe travels!

No other amenities, just power& fuel. We tied up on the old lock wall but at least it was calm and we walked to the Dairy Queen.
New owners, very nice and trying very hard. Call them direct, don’t bother with Docwa!
Thank you for staying with us!! Enjoyed all the knowledge you shared with us! Enjoy your travels!

We did an overnight stay tied up to the ancient lock wall in 12’ of water. Storms were predicted for that night, and I did not trust the very open water anchorage at Upper Henry Island.
This marina is best for a no frills, trusted overnight stay. You will be tying up to metal handholds drilled into the ancient lock stones. There was power available, but we just ran the generator.
It is a very short walk up the hill to a cute Mexican / burger restaurant, and a Dairy Queen. Also a huge farm based True Value which is fully stocked.
The new marina owners are available by a phone call to provide diesel and gas in a facility that has more than 3’ of water (which is rare from here to Peoria in normal summer pool). They will also give advice about the local town on top of the hill, as they are locals.
This is not a glamorous transient marina. If you want/ need that, go back up the river to Ottawa. If you want a safe, secure, deep water overnight tie up with no amenities (no water, restrooms, etc), but with diesel and gas, no wakes from the river, in 12’ of water even at summer pool depths on the river, super helpful owners, and a cute town (Henry) up the hill, this stop is perfect.
Thank you so much for staying with us and the great review!! We appreciate the business. We do love our little town.
