Reviews for Manistique Municipal Marina
Nice facility, 2016-06-26
Captain: , La Crosse, WI (627)

This Marina is not staffed full time. You must call the Marina number then you get a cell phone number to call Bob. You may have to leave a message on his cell phone. It took most of an hour to finally make contact. The facility is near new and clean. Sprint cell phone coverage is poor at best. No wifi. Showers had no hot water, another call to Bob, he did come down right away and fixed the problem. Bob is very accommodating and a all around nice guy. There is a highway bridge near by with trucks using there jake brakes. This is an ok stop but I would not go out of my way to come here.

Best fuel prices anywhere!, 2015-07-17
Captain: , Bloomington, IN (156)

Very nice, newly revamped, quiet marina. Best fuel prices we have found anywhere on the lake. The dockmaster, Bob is very accommodating. Not a lot to do in town, but 2 or 3 mom and pop restaurants. We had an excellent meal at Downtowner's, a new restaraunt just started in 5/15. Very nice 1.8 mile walking trail along the shore and through the marina. Definitely worth a stop at "The Top of Lake Michigan".

Nice new dock, 2015-06-07
Captain: , LaSalle MI (575)

They were working on fuel dock when we visited. Bob is still the dockmaster and arrives about noon for the afternoon. Couple of numbers to call on office door but no answer at either one. Bob mentioned toElks club chicken dinner was going on and it was great. Small town activity with really genuine people.

Nice stop for an evening, 2014-10-02
Captain: , Madison, WI (430)

We stopped here on our way from Escanaba to Mackinac Island. Bob wasn't around on Saturday evening, which is expected this time of year, but did stop by on Sunday morning to say hi and collect the dockage fee. New dock, not slips, but very adequate. We didn't have a chance to use the facilities due to our early Sunday departure. A small hike into town for some local haunts with nice folks. I would recommend this marina.

Nice Stop in the UP., 2014-08-30
Captain: , Mackinaw City, MI (60)

We have been here for three days and even though it has been longer than we would have liked due to the weather, the marina has been wonderful! Marina building and transient dock are brand new. Washrooms are the cleanest on Lake Michigan. The harbor master, Bob very nice and friendly. Fantastic grocery store just a short bike ride or walk along the boardwalk/trail along the lake. Car show in town today with craft show, BBQ chicken, whitefish sandwiches. If you are heading to Fayette and the Door Peninsula this is a great place to stop.

New wall for cruisers, 2014-08-23
Captain: , Nowhere,OK (1314)

We are tied up along the new wall. Room for 4-5 fair sized cruisers. Short walk to town for hardware and dinner. The grocery is about 8 blocks away.

Brand new showers, lots of hot water, they are huge!!

Bob the Dockmaster is great.

Wifi is iffy if you are not docked right next to the building.

If you are cruising the North shore of Lake Michigan, this would be a good stop.

We ended up spending two days here. There are concerts on Wed / Friday on the other side of the basin.

Off the beaten path, 2014-08-15
Captain: , LaSalle, MI (10)

We tried anchoring in the outer harbor but strong winds and surge coming in from the southwest made us decide to try the marina (though we had no difficulty getting our anchor to set and hold). This marina is run by the state and was recently updated and remodeled. It re-opened this Spring (2014) so all facilities are brand new. It has gas, diesel, pump out, showers, laundry, and a lounge. It is a short walk town, where we saw an Ace hardware, two auto parts stores, a dollar store and several restaurants. We did not see a grocery store, though we were not looking for one. Transient boats have to tie to the 350' wall in front of the marina office. The chart shows only six feet of water coming up the channel but it has been dredged and now has at least seven feet, according to the dock master, though we did not see less than nine. More dredging is planned for next year, so deeper draft boats will not have a problem. We enjoyed our stay and would come again.
