Came in to look at Brokerage boats and meet friends for lunch at the on site restrarant we called on 16 then 9 no replys. went to gas dock couldnt find attendent, called the main office she said to park next door at the public ramps docks and walk back over to there marina to shop and have lunch, Food was so so server was new so I will just say she still needs training. Couldnt get a sales person to talk to about a boat they have listed. oh well we can look at some other ones as we keep on moving no point in staying here

This is a great place to store your boat. It is clean, safe and the people treat you very nice. There is plenty of room between the boats and you are surrounded by a nature preserve.

Skipper Buds is a all purpose service marina that can handle most marine repairs. They also run a nice restaurant/pub with decent prices and friendly staff. There is a diesel/gas dock. More importantly, Illinois DNR maintains a 300' free wall on site right beside one of its launch ramps where cruisers can overnight. No power or water but a nice free respite in very protected waters. Should you wish to pay for a slip with amenities, Northpoint Marina is right beside Skipper Buds.
