The River Raisin Marina & Campground is ideally located on the north side of the Port of Monroe Turning Basin, on the River Raisin in Monroe, MI. This location allows for deep water access, 22 feet, into Lake Erie from the well protected waters of the River Raisin.
The River Raisin Marina has 50 deep water wells. There is also a launch ramp, which provides plenty of parking for cars and trailers. The Marina & Campground boasts 28 acres of park-like setting for boat owners and campers to enjoy. Located just east of I-75, exit 14, at 2502 East Elm Ave, the Marina is ideally situated for minimal driving and maximum boating.
John and Veronica own and operate the marina and campground. They originally purchased the land for the River Raisin Marina while looking for a deep water location for their 50 foot sailboat. Having over 30 years and 100,000 miles of sailing experience, they felt this was the ideal location for large and small sailboats.
They purchased their 50' sail boat in 1987 and spent five years sailing throughout the South Pacific. Their sailing took them to Australia, Tahiti, the Philippines, Hawaii, and many of the exotic islands scattered around the Pacific Ocean. When it was time to return to the United States, John single handedly sailed this boat from Japan to Santa Barbara, CA.
It’s a decent place to tie up for the night but nothing special. If you’re expecting a typical marina you won’t find it but you will get a decent dock, polite people and a quiet night other than occasional noise from the power plant down the river.
This facility should not be regarded as a "marina". This is an RV campground that has a number of very small docks. It's fine for 20ft runabouts, but not suitable for most cruising boats. Campground had a faint odor of sewage and steel plant across the river had its own smell. If you just need a place to get off the lake, it works. Just dont expect much. (Not worth the price charged)
