Great sleepy little harbor. Draft max is 5’ in some places. The staff is extremely nice and helpful. Will go back would highly recommend.

Joe the harbor master could not have been more helpful or kind. He went out of his way to help us enter the harbor, which can be tricky. He guided us in by boat. He parked us near the bathrooms in a quiet spot and found a big enough spot for out 41 ft sailboat. Very friendly and accommodating. He also stayed late and kept the harbor office open until 7:30pm, 2 hours past closing time to make sure we arrived safely. Can’t say enough good things about Joe. Bathrooms weere very clean and the small yacht club where members were having a birthday party added a nice atmosphere.

Joe and crew were extra accommodating for our one night trip to Jackson Park. Cozy harbor with lots to do around the area.
