About


Leland Harbor is certainly one of the most beautiful harbors in Michigan. Long, sandy beaches stretch North and South of the Harbor, with Whaleback Natural Area Bluff framing the southern beach, and the spectacular, protected Clay Cliffs jutting up to the North. On the horizon you can see North and South Manitou Islands, of the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. The water is clear and refreshing for both boating, and swimming. Fishing is great in the Manitou Passage, as Leland is recognized as one of the best fishing ports in Michigan.

Leland Harbor is a full-service marina, owned and operated by Leland Township. The Harbor includes a public boat launch, and picnic area. Located next to Historic Fishtown ~ shopping, dining, lodging and beaches are just steps away. Plan to launch your boat, or come by sea ~ either way, you are going to love your time on the water in Leland!

Outstanding dock crew. Neil is a great, helpful person. After serving there for 7 years, he is most helpful for information. Great facilities, clean, and attractive. The marina is very walkouts Fishtown and area shops. The MadCap Coffee Shop is a great stop for some great coffee. We’ll be back again. Thanks Neil and crew!

This is a beautiful spot and the marina is very good. As mentioned by others - a nice halfway point between Frankfort and Charlevoix. Dock hands are super helpful. Docks are floating with nice big cleats. No problem getting securely tied up. Town is immediately adjacent to the marina with quaint gift shops in Fishtown and also in Leland proper. Clean restrooms and showers all in good shape. I'd prefer a counter in the washroom rather than the stand alone ceramic sinks - there's not much space for your stuff. The entire marina building is very nice with a lounge, laundry, restrooms and several showers (I should have counted) Beaches on either side of the marina. We've stayed here many times for a night and one time for several when the lake didn't cooperate. One word of caution - don't fill your water tank here. There is a LOT of iron in the water. This is noted in the laundry (might stain your clothes) and we tied into the system and had rust stains in the morning from the small drip at the connection. As noted by others the channel in is narrow, give the end of the outer break wall plenty of clearance. We saw 8+ feet through the middle.

The marina is in nice shape and the dock hands are friendly and competent. My two suggestions are: - have trash receptacles available not just the dumpster -the dock hands don’t start until 9:00 and leave at 5:00. I would at least ask they start at 8:00 for boats wanting fuel or a pump out before they leave.

Leland Township Harbor Marina is great example of how a marina should be run . . .

This is our second stay at Leland with the first being in 2019. Everything is just how we remembered it, it was worth a return visit. The dockhands were very helpful in getting tied up, the facilities were spotless and the wifi was pretty decent. We very much enjoy Leland/Fish Town and this stop did not disappoint. If I could give one recommendation to Leland harbor it would be to consider adding a "dinghy shuttle" service to get guests up on Lake Leelanau with tenders/dinghies. It would be a 100 yard two from the marina and would really open up the possibilities for boaters who bring tenders with them. We'd absolutely extend our stays in Leland if this type of service were available.

Outstanding people and place. Have been going there most years for the past 20. They facilitated me having a slip that worked for me. They were there with 3 people to help me land and took care of tie up and electrical. Greeted us to the marina and offered any assistance we might need after providing the building access fob and internet access information.

Beautiful marina, beautiful town. Sadly our schedule changed and we were arriving on Sunday evening rather than Monday. A day prior to our Sunday arrival I emailed the marina (as directed in the reservation email) and did not hear back regarding the change request. Upon arrival we were not able to use the marina facilities / amenities. Kind of a bummer... /r H

the facility was “open”, but not fully ready. TV inlounge wouldn’t work, many pier lights were off as well as area lighting, no recycling bin, and worst of all, noone from the city was cleaning up the thousands of dead fish on the docks and loading ramp. Logan, worked hard and did a good job, but needed help. While there was not much traffic, boaters have a right toexpect it to be “open” fully when it is officially open.

One of our favorite stops on Lake Michigan. Small marina but had great docks, showers, and bathrooms. It is right on the lake but well protected from wind/waves and has an easy entry/exit. We are not a fan of the State of Michigan reservation system--its clunky and hard to navigate, so we chose to call to reserve a slip. We had no idea the marina often gets booked up far in advance. We were lucky as we were just a few days after the season’s rush but have heard other’s haven’t been as lucky and had to be turned away. Beautiful, quaint town with a great beach to watch the sunset. We biked to Sleeping Bear Dunes which was beautiful.

We stayed last night. The staff was very professional, helpful and friendly - especially Ben. He even offered to take a phot o of our group. The place was very clean. Docks are fairly easy to get in and out. They put my 54 footer in a 45 ish slip and I was sticking out, but they made other slips were empty across from me. Super nice docks. Leland is a nice laid back community to stay. ##Please note the pictures attached to this are NOT current. They must be from 5+ years ago.

This was the nicest harbor that we stayed at on our July 2014 Northern Michigan adventure. The facilities are all modern and the Harbor master was a friendly as they get with lots of good info about the town and nearby ports. The town was very charming and we had an excellent white tablecloth meal at The Riverside Inn. The picture needs to be updated on Marinas.com.

Talk about going the extra mile, these folks were helpful and easy going. A storm was brewing and they were working on finding a place for everyone. When I called to make reservations they did not think that necessary, but the storm apparently made difference. Unfortunately we arrived late in the afternoon and they had dropped my reservation. Up to date, clean, very easy to get to. These folks know how to deal with a storm.

The NEW marina is far better than the old. The new floating docks and facilities are excellent and are as good as anywhere on the Great Lakes. The staff is well selected and well run. The operation is a great comination of facilites, staff and a relaxed atmosphere. Got socked in here for two days in June and enjoyed the stay. Nice little town with great restaurants. Only the Marina.com pics need updating. Nothing else needs changing. Ron - Troy, MI - m/y Pouting Girl
