Reviews for Escanaba Municipal Marina
Why you should come to Little Bay de Noc, 2016-08-18
Captain: , Escanaba, MI (10)

Truly a hidden gem. The marina is well protected, well staffed, and well maintained. The restroom facilities are spacious and impeccably clean. The marina rents out free bicycles which is an absolute boon; town is a bit of a walk from the docks. If Door County is a bit too plastic for you, Escanaba should be your destination of choice.



Another great Michigan Marina, 2016-06-21
Captain: , La Crosse, WI (627)

Friendly staff, clean, clean, clean restrooms and showers. Marina located in a very well kept park with swimming beach, walking and bike paths. Historical lighthouse across the street. The only negative is that it's a bit of a hike to get groceries



Nice Quiet Marina, 2015-07-23
Captain: , Racine, WI (371)

Well protected marina, easy access to long floating piers. Friendly helpful staff, free rental bikes, across the street from the historical museum, clean spacious restrooms and showers, good laundry facilities. Nice downtown, Wednesday farmers market from 3-6 nice selection, fresh corn on the cob, cherries, raspberries, butter lettuce, great stay.



Very nice, more people should stop here, 2014-08-30
Captain: , Nowhere,OK (1314)

Great floating docks, good staff, shower, etc. Fuel, pumpout and FREE BIKES TO GET TO TOWN. Why are you not here with the rest of us.

Escanaba has eateries, shopping, replenshiment, etc. Fishing off the dock isn't approved, but very good.

We spent 2 nights and if we didn't need t be someplace else would staty some more.



Superb weather protection, top services, 2012-03-30
Captain: , Escanaba (165)

One of the best protected harbors in northern Lake Michigan. New Harbormaster, Larry, is improving the service. Little and Big Bay de Noc is one of the top 10 sailing areas in the world.



Escanaba Marina, 2009-07-01
Captain: , escanaba, mi (283)

One of the beat marinas around. The docks are very well kept up and the staff is great. The bathrooms and showers are second to none and the park is beautiful. I keep my boat there for a very good reason
