Reviews for Hartshorn Marina
Nothing fancy, 2016-09-01
Captain: , Baltimore (389)

A step down from the other municipal marinas on the Michigan shoreline.
We tried to call the marina on the radio but the one marina staff was out of the office and did not take the handheld radio.
It took four attempts to find someone in the office to pay our bill.
The gate is locked at 6pm, so if you plan to leave in the morning before 8am, you have to turn your key in the day before.
Not much close by. Not a nice neighborhood. The pizza place within walking distance does not open until 5pm.

Stayed night of 8/30/15, 2015-09-02
Captain: , Atlanta (770)

Understaffed (no one to help docking, no one to turn on pump-out station). We tied to end of T-dock - fixed wood docks OK, calm overnight.

Baths OK (did not use shower), but a long way (at least from end of T-dock). The main issue with the marina is the town itself: Muskegon seems to be in a serious economic slump. Not the fault of the marina, of course, but still not much there.

Captain: , MUSKEGON (10)

Located about 1/2 way in the length of Muskegon Lake, Hartshorn is a very well protected, clean, decent sized marina. Staff is very helpful and attentive to boaters needs. Long drop from fixed docks down to the decks of smaller boats during times of low water level, but the T dock, and the North wall all have floating docks. Municipal marina, so there are almost always slips available. Bike path runs right outside marina, and downtown Muskegon is an easy walk or ride. New Farmers Market coming to downtown in 2014-15. No pool or playground, but also not a lot of youngsters. There is a beautiful large park (Heritage Landing) adjacent to the marina. Seasonal boaters are a friendly group that will gladly offer help.

Great staff, 2013-08-26

A little out of the way but very helpful staff. Bike path and park at door step.

nice facility but extremely isolated, 2011-08-25
Captain: , Mesa AZ (1609)

NOTHING around marina!

Hartshorn, OK stop over, 2011-02-14
Captain: , Grand Haven (100)

An OK Marina, Clean & well kept, but even though in the middle of town it's a long way from reseraunts, stores & shops

A great marina in strong winds, 2010-09-16
Captain: , baltimore md (634)

We spent a short week here in early sept.2010. The protection was very good during the gale. Good staff that even gave us a reduced rate after labor day. Shopping is not close but Fricanos pizza is next door. Good bike trail that goes to the beach. Toressen marine has a very good parts inventory. Enterprise car rentals will pick you up. Five star laundromat was very nice but you will need a car. Downtown is "working on it".

Harshorn City Marina, 2010-08-24
Captain: , Whitehall, Mi (1754)

Central pier has floating docks and the rest are fixed but with reasonable height.

Decent location, but chain link fence not the most attractive.

If they want to put you on the T-head, try to get another slip. While most of the marina is well protected from wakes, the T-head is exposed and you bounce around.
