Staff was courteous and helpful. Easy to dock there. I wish there was a different VHF channel other than 16 to coordinate docking rather than trying to yell across.

The weather was really bad and we couldn’t make it. I would appreciate a refund.

No complaints. Space was open for me at the appointed time. Dock hands were right there. A very pleasant experience. I wish someone would have thought of this 30 years ago, when I had my own boat and could come to Chicago several times in a summer.

Only complaint is that it took until right before we got there to get a confirmation..I realize I only reserved Friday but I called 3 times to double check the status and only received the voicemail and couldn’t get through to an actual person. All worked out and we had a great time though!
