Friendly and helpful dock office crew! Had a 50’ slip for several years, fabulous location. Now we use Burnham to launch our trailer boat or when we leave it in a transient slip for occasional weekends. So easy to get to. Can’t leave the trailer overnight, we just bring it home w us if leaving the boat in for a few days. Seemed much less busy at the launch on a weekend than in past years, not sure why. If launching on the weekend maybe check with them about trailer parking availability, and any events at Soldier Field or the park that might affect getting there.
Nice new harbor, totally protected, great location, daily fee pool, friendly staff. Beach right there. Restaurant. Lakefront bike/ walking trail, jet ski rentals. All right there. Would be a great spot for seasonal or transient stay, a short Uber into the city or museums. Boat ramp is excellent but only about 6 trailer parking spots which makes no sense. Fortunately they seem to have an arrangement with a facility near McCormick for overflow trailer parking, not sure what that costs. Also there’s an indoor parking garage for cars, which does get full but there’s another large parking lot a short walk across the bridge over Lake shore Drive. Overall pretty good set up esp for Chicago.
