Whether you're an overnight guest, or a local resident, Waukegan Harbor can serve all your boating needs. The Waukegan Port District was established in 1955 to oversee the activities and operations of the harbor. Watch the arrival of the cement and gypsum vessels as their captains dock in our commercial slip.

We love Waukegan Harbor. Only giving a 4 due to the seaweed in the Marina. I haven't seen any effort over the weekend to remove it. The seaweed is hazardous to props and gets tangled causing boats not to be to operate properly. We know this is probably due to reduced staff due to Covid, otherwise a 5 out of 5

I have enjoyed being a boating member at Waukegan Harbor & Marina for 4 years now. The staff is great, very customer service orientated, they recently added a new outdoor full service bar with entertainment that is a great place to unwind. I look forward to my stay-cations every day.

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.

Nice pump out equipment. Great pump out/fuel team. Nice docks and clubhouse. Lots of bird poop. I wish the town had more going on. Go to the train station to walk into town. On foot, avoid the bridges you see from the harbor. Proceed to the train station to walk downtown.

The harbor staff at Waukegan are great. We are transient boaters all summer and stay at 20+ different harbors each year. Waukegan's staff are consistently the best we find anywhere. It's a very large harbor with a lot of boats and they manage it well.

It sucked. Arrived just before 7:00 pm and nobody answered radio call to assist with lines. METAL post without rub protection between slips. Wind pushed boat into post during docking since no line assistance was provided as promised in welcome arrival email. Scratched boat which will cost a few hundred dollars to have repaired. No keys or codes for washroom provided so did not get to use facilities. Seems like a nice harbor except rub protection needed on metal post for ALL slips. Shitty design as-is. Also service NON-EXISTENT even though i arrived at a reasonable early evening time. I am not at all happy. Waukegan Harbor will be my future stop of last resort.

It was easy to register and easy to find our slip. We came in late and needed a key card to return to the dock area. The staff were reasonably responsive about getting us a key card. The location was such that it was difficult to gain access to a meal at night.

We enjoyed our stay. The marina was in good shape and the staff was courteous. The young ladies sent to assist us tying up at our slip even offered me a ride to the office. But they did not seem to know how to control a 40 foot boat in a slip by getting a dock line around a cleat. My only other comment is that more showers are needed in this large marina and they should be more distributed throughout the marina as are the restrooms.
