Easy Access, Great Service, 2013-06-25
Captain: , La Salle, MI (122)

Short distance from the main river with no bridges to contend with. Transients can tie up on the very long gas dock. We plugged into a 30A station that didn't have power and did not notice until after hours. Turns out there was power 10 feet away. When they found out they waived that nights charge which I thought was classy. We stayed another night because of high winds and had power. Decent facilities although only one shower. Good dockside people and the town has great restaurants, a great hardware store and a boat chandlery within easy walking distance. Fuel prices very reasonable.



Great stop., 2012-09-19
Captain: , Erie, Pa. (1896)

Heading north; fuel price for diesel 3.999 (.05 boat US or Great Lakes Cruising Club) terrific people. Needed 2 x 50 electric and one lead was backwards, they called an electrician to affix repair. Handy to good restaurants and shops. Easy in & out.

Stayed here again 9-17 & 9-18-12, comments remain the same, diesel was 4.26.



Excellent!! But Canadians Get Hassled By Border Officials, 2012-03-17
Captain: , Point Edward (30)

I've bought gas from these people for 20 years. Always good fuel quality, always good service. There is some continuity of management and knowledge here that boaters can benefit from.

On busy days expect to find many Customs/Immigration/INS/Homeland Security officers walking these docks. I watched them desend on many Canadian registered vessels before they were even completely tied up.

Suffice it to say that in this general region we're fully staffed should prohibition ever be re-enacted. And since there aren't many real threats, Canadian registered vessels get targeted, presumably out of boredom.



Easy fueling, 2011-07-31
Captain: , Jeffersonville, IN (582)

Quick to locate when passing through with easy access in and out. Sales staff could use some "sales" training but otherwise a good location.

Captain: , Sarnia (141)

Popular fuel stop (Diesel and gas) for locals and for those crusing up and down Lake Huron. Competitve prices, quick and easy access, note current flowing towards St. Clair river.
