My wife and I typically cruise out of Waukegan Harbor. We are transients and the launch ramps there are plenty big enough for our 30' Sea Ray with easy access and a large parking lot for our truck and trailer. The marina's facilities, as well as the staff are top notch and their floating concrete docks are what every marina should have. The fuel/pump-out dock is easy to access and can accommodate several boats at one time. To be honest, the area around the marina is lacking in regards to food, entertainment and activities but hopefully the proposed development that is planned for the area will provide boaters with more "on shore" options in the future.
Reefpoint is by far our favorite marina. My wife and I have always enjoyed our stays here. The manager, Carrie, does a wonderful job of making sure everything runs smooth at Reefpoint and the rest of staff could not be any nicer or more accommodating. The marina's amenities are plentiful, as are those of the surrounding area. Reefpoint is well protected from the unwanted forces of Lake Michigan. Even when the wind and wakes are at their worst, the water at the slips remains calm and peaceful. If you haven't been to Reefpoint, do yourself a favor and add it to your list of "must visit" marinas. You won't be disappointed.
