Rogers City Marina


News About Excellent Fishing Conditions:  Report from Frank Krist  
Gateway to the North Channel

Along the waterfront, a beautiful harbor invites sailboats and cruisers into a state-of-the-art dredged and expanded facility. This US Customs port of entry makes a great jumping off point to the North Channel and to explore Lake Huron--the most central of all the Great Lakes. The U.S. Customs officer living in Rogers City makes for easy processing when coming back from Canada. The marina is home for up to 92 seasonal slips and 34 transient slips with additional spaces available for overflow. The harbor entrance and gas dock is 9 feet deep below chart datum and 7 to 8 feet deep in other areas, depending on lake level. An extended breakwall assures smooth dockage coming in from Lake Huron.  Marina amenities include full fuel and pumpout facilities, docking assistance, clean restrooms & showers, laundry service, and free WiFi.  Additionally, the breakwall extension has a fishing platform for anglers wishing to try their luck. A full-service fish cleaning station is available at the Marina.  For more information about fishing visit: Lake Huron Fishing  For more fishing information check out: Hammond Bay Area Anglers

Another special and unique feature of Rogers City's Marina are the many ship wrecks in the immediate area.  Some of these wrecks are in shallow water and may be reached without special diving gear.  For diving tours, visit our local dive shop at www.greatlakesdivers.com.  Another resource for information about ship wrecks in the area is the Thunder Bay National Marine Sanctuary and Underwater Preserve, a division of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). 

The Rogers City Marina is located in a terrific spot with Lakeside Park and the downtown spreadout beyond the marina's ample parking area. Lakeside Park includes two playground areas, a bandshell with weekly, free summer concerts; an enclosed Pavilion; a restaurant--The Pavilion Grill; a gazebo; beach-side volleyball courts, basketball courts, a swimming beach with a diving platform; the Sailor's Memorial honoring those who lost their lives on the Great Lakes;and several scenic picnic spots with benches views and art objects.  Downtown Restaurants and shopping are an easy 2-3 block walk or bike ride from the marina. 

The Huron Sunrise Trail connects with Lakeside Park on both the North and South.  The trail is over seven miles of paved surface most of which fronts on Lake Huron and links Hoeft State Park, 40 mile Point Lighthouse, the Herman Vogler Conservation Area, and many other scenic points.  The Huron Sunrise Trail provides a wonderful walking or biking experience for anyone who enjoys fresh air, peace and quiet, and terrific views.
