Reviews for Big Bay Harbor of Refuge
Very good protection and a great story., 2016-06-28
Captain: , looping (62)

As of 6/25/2016 there was no silting of the entrance. I showed nothing less than 9 ft at the entrance.

Transients dock on the north side of the wall. Deeper water is at the east end of the wall.

There is a great story in the very small village up the road. A murder at the Lumberjack tavern (still open) that led to a best selling novel and a Jimmy Stewart move.



Well protected and serene, 2015-09-02
Captain: , Madeline Island (140)

Anchored here two nights in ten feet of water, directly across from tie up wall. Requires two anchors so you won't swing in this small area. They still charge for anchoring, 50% of the tie up rate.

Tie along wall was sturdy. Transient section is to left of fuel dock and is not marked. No attendant and you need a cell phone to call to register and someone is sent down to collect. If paying by credit card your number is written down and processed at the town office. Single public restroom. Single locked shower. $1.25 per foot. includes 30 amp power.



Quiet Dock, 2012-08-24
Captain: , Detroit (647)

August 2012 - We just stayed here in our 52 ft trawler with 4.5 ft draft. Follow the guidelines we have posted on the inlet to enter. We stayed in the middle of the transient dock and did not have problems. Make sure to walk up to the Thunder Bay Inn for a drink and dinner. This was the setting for the filming of Anatomy of a Murder back in the 50's.

I have not used the dock here. The dock is a wall to tie to. It is too shallow along the wall for deep draft boats (over 5'). I have anchored in here in about 8' but you need to put out a bow stern anchor because there is little swing room. It is extremely well protected. This is also an area with serious fog often. This is another harbor that shoals in and you should call the marina ahead to check on entrance conditions if you have a deep draft
