Boaters love the marina’s central location within the Fox River Forest Preserve in Port Barrington. The entrance is on Roberts Road west of Route 59. It's a perfect place to start your day in the sun. Boat slips, floating pier, public boat launch, indoor storage, and paved parking lots are available here. The surrounding water makes a great playground for a variety of sports, including wakeboarding, water-skiing, tubing and fishing. You’ll need approved flotation gear, and your motorized watercraft must be registered and titled with the state of Illinois.
