Reviews for Maitland Valley Marina
Nice spot for shelter, 2016-09-01
Captain: , LaSalle MI (597)

Great spot if you have a day to explore the city and all it has to offer. Not much to offer if you get in late and plan on an early exit. Heads are clean, one restaurant near by that was closed when signs said open. Protection is excellent, dock are in good shape and staff was welocoming.



Good place to hide, great town, 2015-12-23
Captain: , Toronto (482)

This coast of Lake Huron can be a nasty place, and Goderich is a good place to hide or regroup. There are excellent beaches North and South of town with excellent fresh water surf, beware, the beaches can be rocky only a dozen feet from the high water mark.

If you just need a place to hide for a few hours the salt mine offers a nice harbour of refuge.

The town is beautiful. It was the location of the last public hanging in Canada and a trip to the old gaol is well worth the time.



Great Place to Shelter, 2015-10-20
Captain: , Rockford, IL (614)

Excellent staff and wide docks in great shape. Just look for the turqoise color salt mine buidlings to guide you in. If you choose to walk up the hill to town be aware that it's steep, with rustic steps, and quite a hike.



Goderich harbour, 2015-07-18
Captain: , Windsor (270)

The marina is well protected and has been updated. You are close to a salt mine but it is a God send if you need off the big bad lake! Walk into town, it is really nice. You can find supermarkets and other stores including hardware. Friendly and very helpful staff.



View of the Salt mine, 2014-07-02
Captain: , Port Franks (176)

We stayed one night on the new finger slips. Good quality large slips. Bathrooms and showers were clean and close. No real scenery unless rail cars and Salt mines are your thing.



Little Marina Tucked out of harms way, 2013-10-15
Captain: , Cedar Point, Sandusky, OH (400)

We had to stop because lake Huron was awful (as on most of our trip). This was a good stop to make us feel like we made progress.



A great stopover, 2013-07-04
Captain: , Pittsburgh (513)


Goderich is a great marina and very sheltered. Significant work underway on the docks this year (2013). 30 & 50A supply & water. The town is very typical of a small waterside Canadian town and has done significant rebuilding since the Tornado hit a couple of years ago. Gas and Diesel.



A Jewel when you're seeking refuge from Lake Huron, 2012-05-09
Captain: , Midland Ontario (660)

The marina is a bit tired with obvious signs of neglect. Friendly and helpful staff. It shines like a beacon when the lake kicks up. It's keeps you safe from the storm



Friendly Harbor, 2010-03-12
Captain: , East China, MI (183)

Well protected, deep Channel. Long flight of Stairs to get into a very nice Town full of fun.
