Great location. We can’t say enough about how awesome the staff are! Friendly, responsive, and extremely helpful.

Great location close to so many things to do and places to eat. Super responsive staff. No shady characters around or outside the gates. Only negative is it’s a huge marina and you have to walk around it to go downtown, and that can take 10-15 minutes.

Great harbor. Harbor staff- Christine (hope I have her name correct) was amazing.

Dock on B section was so covered in duck poo that we couldn’t walk it, had to pull close and jump on from the nose- which is not safe, and too scary for some

Great mooring, nice people, great stay.

The restrooms were not very clean and a long walk from our assigned slip. We were actually on a end tie that was ok but at the far north end of the marina.

Nice harbor, no good amenities

Always to notch staffing at Belmont. Not something you get at every Westrec managed property. Kudos to the on site workers. Great location.

Great harbor! Great option to be able to visit friends by boat who have permanent slips. Guest parking equivalent, but for your boat.

Great facilities easy procedure

Very protected marina. Close to down town Chicago.

by Christi L. - Verified user on Sep 09, 2022
Tried hailing marina on VHF 16, 9, and response. Called on phone and told no one available to help dock. I had messaged them to make sure we had a dock wide enough for our 19 foot beam and they tried to put us in a slip too small. Luckily one worker (Alex) was in Harbor on boat and directed us to a t dock. He also came over to help us. If it wasn't fir him, I would have given this a 1 star.
