Henry Harbor Marina is a 60 slip facility with over 800’ of linear dockage. A frequent stop over for travelers on the Illinois River, the marina is often a stop over for boaters seeking refuge from low waters. The marina offers diesel fuel, premium gasoline, power, and water to boaters looking for a pleasant stop on their travels.
This is a work in progress. Facilities are very rough. They have gas, diesel and 30 amp electric. New owners Fran and Bill are working hard to make this a good stop. They couldn't be nicer.
The wall was secure and the owners were on the job working hard to make cherry the stay was good. There are picnic tables and we grilled out with other loopers. Can’t wait to see what they do with the place down the road.
Fantastic marina. The new owners are doing it right. Friendly,safe, most anything you need is a short walk away. One thing I'd add is water for the boat on the wall.
Great little place for a stop over. New owners were very helpful and are working to add amenities. Plenty of water for deep draft vessels on the old lock wall. No drinking water there yet but plenty of 30 amp power.
Owner was super helpful in getting 3 trawlers docked on rough wall. Location was nice.
This is a very nice family owned and operated harbor! You couldn’t ask for better people to run a place like this! They are working relentlessly to get the place back into tip top shape, as they are new owners, and I can appreciate that!
Great people! Beautiful sights!
No other amenities, just power& fuel. We tied up on the old lock wall but at least it was calm and we walked to the Dairy Queen. New owners, very nice and trying very hard. Call them direct, don’t bother with Docwa!
We did an overnight stay tied up to the ancient lock wall in 12’ of water. Storms were predicted for that night, and I did not trust the very open water anchorage at Upper Henry Island. This marina is best for a no frills, trusted overnight stay. You will be tying up to metal handholds drilled into the ancient lock stones. There was power available, but we just ran the generator. It is a very short walk up the hill to a cute Mexican / burger restaurant, and a Dairy Queen. Also a huge farm based True Value which is fully stocked. The new marina owners are available by a phone call to provide diesel and gas in a facility that has more than 3’ of water (which is rare from here to Peoria in normal summer pool). They will also give advice about the local town on top of the hill, as they are locals. This is not a glamorous transient marina. If you want/ need that, go back up the river to Ottawa. If you want a safe, secure, deep water overnight tie up with no amenities (no water, restrooms, etc), but with diesel and gas, no wakes from the river, in 12’ of water even at summer pool depths on the river, super helpful owners, and a cute town (Henry) up the hill, this stop is perfect.
