Boat Mooring & Launching


The marina is closed for the 2020 season.
We are accepting boat mooring reservations for the winter.
The winter boat mooring form is here.
Great thanks to everyone who came out and enjoyed the lake,
and a special thanks to our friends from the Des Plaines Yacht Club.
You all helped turn what could have been the lost summer of 2020
into a wonderful season of fun for all ages. We appreciate your support.
See you in the spring. Until then, be safe and stay well.

Boating season is April 1 to October 31.
Sailing is available to those owning a boat who are properly qualified. Privately owned boats must be registered. All boaters must sign in and out at the clubhouse.
Sailing is only permitted during hours when waterfront staff is on duty.
