Reviews for Lake Pontchartrain Harbor Marina
Worse than ever, 2016-08-07
Captain: , Gulf Coast (19)

The channel depth is a questionable 4-5 ft, from the first marker to the entrance. Stay right slap dab in the middle of the channel. Do not vear off. Approach at high tide and when the wind is from the south to assure a better advantage. if you want the best of luck. The jetty to SB on arrival does not extend far out and so the channel silts in rather soon after they vacumm and blow the silt off to the side, which is a waste of effort. There was a tree root base submerged to SB on arrival about midway before entrance. The entrance is about 45' wide. The bath house has been removed since April 2015 following a tree falling it. Al Copeland places one port-a-can on th bank for alll tennants to use. It is a pirimitive marina to live aboard or visit and they have not dropped the rent price due to this. The drive way to the east side of the marina, where the bath house once was, now has a security gate. Call the harbor master on the sign to get code. It is a marina of motion, especially when the wind is out of SW. I would question the turnover in fuel sold to its quality. The only thing worth giving a rating to is they do have a dry dock.

Marina has been updated quite a bit since last reviews. About 2/3rds of the docks have been rebuilt and are mostly full. The two large piers to the northwest are sttill battered. A couple of boats are on those, but generally appear unsafe and are locked off. Fuel and pump-out is workin. I called about approach depth and was informed that is is typically 8' and they have someone who comes out every few weeks to maintain the channel.
There is a bath house with basic laundry in a small; building in the wooded area east of the marina and north of the dry storage area. The bath house consists of a single private shower/sink/toilet attached with locking door to the residential washer & dryer. It's always been clean when I went in, but no air conditioning. There's supposed to be no live aboards in the marina, but there are a few and they seem to be washing clothes or showering whenever I need to use it. My wife finds it a little spooky that it is in the woods and always humid due to no climate control. It doesn't help that there's some wildlife nearby after dark - racoons. There's also a small alligator that swims around occasionally, but nobody complains about it.

The staff here is pretty good. They took care of my boat during hurricane Isaac which pushed an 8' tidal surge into the marina, by adjusting dock lines throughout the storm. There's a new harbor master who has made more improvements recently and seems to be interested in getting things rolling in the right direction. They are having some issues with the local government and permits.

The price is $5.25 per foot, per month and includes electric & fresh water. Pump-out is free. Lots of friendly people and has a lot of potential.

Still Terrible!!!!, 2009-09-25
Captain: , Madisonville (87)

Debris is still visible. Purported to be owned by Copeland Jr. and the family has not done a thing to it since Katrina. Channel into area is low and need to be dredged. Be very careful going in here.

We inspected this facility 4/08 looking for a new slip. The price is way below the norm- and the marina reflects this. The entire marina is in very poor condition. A flybridge still extends out of the water (sank during Katrina). The surrounding area is very nice- it is a shame to let the marina goes this far down!
