Reviews for Lakehead Boat Basin
BEST LOCATION, RUNDOWN, 2016-09-22
Captain: , Hudson, wi (1099)

THE BEST LOCATION FOR A FULL MARINA, IN ITS HEYDAY IT WAS A WONDER TO BEHOLD. VERY RUNDOWN NOW, BUT STILLL HAS THE BEST ACCES TO DULUTH ENTERTAINMENT. BRING A FRIEND TO HOLD TO SHOWER BUTTON FOR YOU! LOL



Closest to downtown Duluth, 2015-09-08
Captain: , La Crosse, WI (627)

This is actually the Marina on the chart closest to the lift bridge. Easy walking distance to downtown. The docks and grounds are in rough shape. The restrooms/showers are terrible portable trailer style, not clean. They cater to the locals and motorhomes. The location is great but unfortunately the Marina is in bad shape.



Location is excellent,, not the rest, 2014-08-02
Captain: , Seattle (131)

If you want access to Duluth without a car, this is where you want to be. The rest is pretty rough. Restrooms in a trailer consist of an airplane style toilet and wash basin (no running water in sink unless you're pushing the button with one soapy hand) and a tight shower--all in the same space. Only two such units total. No laundry. They took it out. Grumpiest owner we've run into all year. Charged 40 cents a gallon more than the competition for diesel. Just be prepared to get fuel someplace else and use your head and shower, you'll be happy. If you want to splurge, tJJ Astor's atop the Radisson has excellent food and a revolving view of the L Akers, Port and city. Really, this is the place to be to see Duluth.



Convenient to Canal Park Tourist distict. Great views of Duluth hillside, 2014-07-23
Captain: , Duluth, MN (10)

Full Service Marina with Fantastic People.



Home Sweet Home, 2011-09-21
Captain: , Duluth (86)

Great full service facility. Dockage slighty less than Barker's Island. Winter storage with haul out launch available. Well protected in Superior Bay. Close to downtown and all the good spots for "sundowners".



My Home Marina, 2010-11-09
Captain: , Duluth, MN (60)

Excellent location w/in 1/2 mile of open lake. Full amenities, 50 ton travel lift, gas, diesel, pumpout. Within easy walking distance of downtown Duluth and entertainment district.



Best spot for transient dockage, 2009-06-22
Captain: , Boston, MA (172)

Lakehead almost always has transient dockage available. The owner is onsite. Self-service gas, diesel and pumpout is available around the clock; ship's store open during normal business hours and their service facility is located across the street. Within walking distance of Canal Park and downtown Duluth. For seasonal dockage, slightly less expensive than Barkers Island.
