Bay Harbor Lake Marina

There is something special about Bay Harbor. Boaters at the marina are attracted by more than the first-class amenities the marina offers - they enjoy being a part of the community. Shared cookouts, dock parties, and day trips make the marina feel more like a neighborhood.

Named one of the "Top Ten Ports in North America" by Motor Boating Magazine, and one of "10 Best Family-Boating Resorts" by Boating Life, Bay Harbor Lake Marina is also a certified Michigan Clean Marina. With the expertly trained staff to provide docking assistance and waterside concierge services, boaters can enjoy a stay either seasonally or as a transient.
