Our favorite marina! Welcoming people, free laundry, an ecar for our use, grass on the dock for the dogs, and a dog beach nearby! Also close enough to easily walk to town.

Always a great stop. Quality staff willing to go the extra mile at every turn. Great location and a nice quiet area of downtown.

Had engine trouble after the Chicago to Mackinac Island race and needed an exter night to complete repairs. The Walstrom crew was very accommodating and the service department very helpful.

Joel the habormaster did a fantastic job accommodating us in a slip which enabled my sailboat to be held on the dock off the wind for our two day stay and providing me extra manuvablability upon our departure. The facilities are great...very clean bathrooms and large boaters lounge..even a Gem cart for use to go grocery shopping and out to dinner We will return next year!

We contemplated staying at the city marina but decided to stay here instead. Wow were we impressed with this marina. From the dock hands to the dock master we experienced nothing but professionalism. Very accommodating! They even have an electric gem car to use if you don't want to walk the two blocks into town. An added bonus is a full service department in case you need some repairs. We will be back.

Staff very helpful. Concerns about a reservation were put to rest by the Harbor Master, he was so helpful we decided to not even try to get into the municipal marina,though it would have been cheaper. People around our slip very friendly and welcoming. Walstrom had free BBQ,free laundry, free coffee in the show room,free electric car to use,bikes can be stored inside. The bathrooms are a bit dated but clean. Boat repair and town all in walking distance,or take the car.
