Reviews for Three Rivers Marina
Not for me, 2016-09-13
Captain: , Kitchener (140)

Weedy, docks in poor condition, shallow, we turned around and left. Did not seev any open slips except theg gas dock. Maybe ok for boat under 30 feet.

Thank you Harry!!, 2016-08-01

We left Hammond Marina on Lake Michigan at 9:30 am Sunday morning. After making it through 3 locks Three Rivers is about 11 miles down from the Brandon Road lock at the 275 mm. We had called in the afternoon to let him know we planned on stopping for the night. It was 10:30 pm and well after dark we we got close and called again, Harry gave us information for finding his marina and went out with a flashlight so we knew exactly where to go. We got in to the fuel dock and Harry helped us get tied up and we had a very good nights sleep. We didn't use any power power he charged us $.50 a foot and wouldn't take more. Three Rivers and Harry were a very welcome sight at the end of a long day.

Harry is great and lives on site, 2015-09-11

Delayed by the lock north we arrived in deep darkness and late at night. Harry, the owner, met us at the entrance and guided us to our very good slip to overnight. Slip was inexpensive. Harry went above and beyond and had reaosnably priced gasoline.

This is a family owned marina. We did not get off the boat since we arrived after dark in the rain. We waited about 4 hours for locks. He gave us a discount since we stayed on the fuel dock. great price at .50/ft

Fuel dock is about 20' long with concrete and wood lining it. Depth is very much an issue making pulling up to the dock challenging. I called ahead and notified them of my draft and electric requirements and neither one was met. Docks were very rickety.

Called ahead for late arrival and it turns out that wasn't a problem as the Owner, Harry lives on site. Water is a little skinny getting into the gas dock but we did not have much of a problem and we draw 43".
Harry took me to the docks and we looked at the slips available and I had choices. They have water and Harry provided a splitter for the 2 - 30 amps I needed.
Lots of help from Harry and other boaters in getting into the slip and tied up. All the docks that are used are in great repair but there are other sections that are barricaded off and in disrepair. Docks were fixed but about the same height as floaters and the pool was down slightly.
The people on the docks and Harry are some of the nicest and friendliest people we have met on the loop. Not the classiest marina you can find but the people really make the experience. We had the quietest night in several weeks.
Closest main road is 5 miles and closest town is 9 miles but Harry offerred to drive us into town if we needed anything.

Harry who runs Three Rivers Marina is a great guy. There are showers in the Yacht Club, laundry as well. Approach depths are limited so call first to check. They have two travel lifts and mechanics on duty
