Many new facilities at East 55th Street Marina are open to the public. Included are a 1,200-foot fishing platform and a Valvtect Marine Certified fuel dock. Our 352 seasonal wet slips are accessible only by secure gated entry. Cleveland Metroparks has been operating the East 55th Street Marina since 2013. We monitor VHF Channel 7
Marina store hours: WED-SUN - 9am-5pm MON-TUES - CLOSED
not very good, the marina has nothing to offer and at once they increased the dockage by $300 without any warning and the winter storage by $200, a total increase of $500, that is not good and a lot of boaters will not come back
Nice clean marina, I stayed to fish the fall Walleye tournaments. It would be nice if the fish cleaning station was kept open as long as the bathrooms. All in all, I will be back next year.
quick easy application and contract process. nice facility. perfect fishermen amenities.
best on the lake in cleveland for the price
Great marina and docks.
Multiple Docks needed repairs all season. The change to the new gate has become a pain as lots of time phones are left in vessel or vehicle. Even if you paid for extra passes before you have to pay for new ones with the new phone pass. Now as the renewal is here there is a unannounced price increase. Our own live music was taken away. The fish cleaning station is sub par. The location is the only benefit. The fuel dock hours change regularly and if you don't follow the emails you will be shocked when they change. A new kayak ramp was installed which is now letting extra traffic in the marina and makes it hard for boaters to motor around. Also the marina installed a transient dock that had a boat parked for the entire year. The price continues to rise and the benefits almost seem to decrease.
Lack of restaurant hours lack of gas stock hours. Maintenance to Dock not so well popping fuses with no response. Prices are increasing with no explanation when services are going down.
I’ve been docking my boat at E.55th for over 18 years and have never been so disappointed with the marina as I am now. Since the parks have taken over, things have changed for the worse -To start, the gas docks are never open (along with the restaurant/bar) and the prices are twice that of other surrounding marinas. The rules and regulations have also changed for the worse - we are no longer allowed to have grills by the picnic tables like before and sitting next to the bathrooms while eating/cooking, is not exactly the most appetizing, or sanitary for that matter. Another thing is the bar/restaurant really doesn’t cater to those in the marina but rather the public - there used to be bands and great food and now it’s a last resort when hungry, due to prices and the public being treated better than those that pay fees to E.55th. Finally, this used to be a fun and relaxing place to dock and now it has become the exact opposite of that - I know people who have docked here as long as I have and we are all unhappy with the direction the parks have taken it. We want to be heard instead of being told this is the new norm, we were here before the parks and want elements of the old marina back. Please listen to your dock renters, we are what funds the marina and we want a say.
East 55th marina has great docks at a reasonable price.The fellow boaters are all very friendly. August and Nick and the rest of the staff do a fine job. My family all feel safe and have a great time when there. My only concern is we keep hearing rumors someone in the administration wants to reconfigure the parking lot divorce it from the boats and docks and make it open to the public. We as boaters have trucks and trailers and equipment in our vehicles that would be vulnerable to theft and to be honest security is pretty lax as is. It would also jeopardize our boats and the expensive fishing and electronic gear. As I previously mentioned security is lax already. I routinely see 2 or 3 cars going thru the gate when 1 person uses their pass. It would not be a stretch of the imagination for people to jump over a fence to access the boats. Also I sleep on my boat at night at times and would be very concerned with my physical safety. I hope this is just a terrible rumor going around and not truth. This brings to mind a few years ago City of Cleveland hired a man named Wasserman to redevelop the Lake front his bright ideas would have ruined Cleveland. Luckily Cleveland realized this and got rid of him but had to pay him handsomely.Do not ruin east 55th marina it is one of the few gems we have on the Lake front. My family is already looking toward next season. If I could make one suggestion it would be nice to have 1 small boat ramp for the dock holders INSIDE the marina to launch small watercraft such as canoes, small boats, jet skis, etc. and not have to cross the open water as from 72nd st. ramp or Edgewater.

The marina is great and services good. They nickel and dime you by charging $25 a day after October 15th even though all the docks are not needed. No appreciation for other people's schedules or all the park levies we pay. Luckily the issue is back on the ballot. Won't forget their greediness on future levi votes.
I have been there for 11 Years, the gate was a mess to get it to work. The restaurant was the worst it has ever been food was bad, bait shop no bait. Asked for at least 5 boards to be fixed on my dock, they put in 1, 12 inch piece. Communication terrible. Dock people are discussing moving to other Marina's.
I’ve enjoyed my stay. Only problem was that the management overreacted to a few boaters by putting in rules aimed at them, including eliminating the fire pit. I also believe the metropark is being cheap by eliminating the golden buckeye discount for seniors
I love how they keep everything clean and maintained. See you next year. 😊
Everyone at this Marina looked out for boaters and visitors during an extremely busy Air Show Weekend. Regardless of the weather not being perfect, the Staff stayed positive and always said hello and asked how your day was going. All facilities and grounds were clean. Dock spaces were clearly numbered so you know where to dock. I stayed 2 days longer than my scheduled stay due to inclement weather and the staff stating that they are a "Safe Harbor". Wonderful experience, I will be back again.
For the most part it was good. Are access card didn't work when we tried to return to the marina at midnight. Thank god someone was leaving so we could get in. All of the members there are awsum friendly as well as the staff. We WILL be returning next year.
This place is full of great people.
Stayed overnight 28 June 2022. Staff was pleasant and accommodating at the fuel dock. Diesel price paid $7.25/gallon. The slip numbers are difficult to see from the fairway. Restaurant is not open Tuesday or Wednesday.
Very friendly staff, I was very happy to get a last minute spot for the week. The facilities are very nice and the keep the grounds very well kept. I will 100% stay here again. The only thing that sucks is the lake front airport is close by and my boat was covered in little black specks, from I assume the planes flying over head. Hopefully this airport closes, like is rumored with the lake front development plans, that would make this spot even better.
Excellent clean facility Great people
August and the whole crew at 55th are top notch to work with.
