Deep Harbor Marina - Saugatuck???

Can anyone tell me about Deep Harbor Marina on the river in Saugatuck? There are a couple of slips there that are for sale in an auction. Is it a good place for fishermen? Water depth? Well maintained? Affected by big lake wind/waves?

Thanks for any insights!

It shows on google maps as being on the river between town and the Lake Michigan.

When I google it, they show it as being East of 31 quite far away from town.

With the water as low as it is now, I would be cautious.

Ryan, if the location on your map is correct, you'll have deep water all the way to the lake and it is a sheltered location from Lk Mich waves and wind. They main thing to check out is the docks themselves to make sure the water level immediately at the dock is OK and they are in good condition. As others said, east of 31 would not be good. Hope it works out for you.

Dan is correct. That marina is far upstream from K'zoo lake east of Douglas. When I purchased my current boat in 2004, it was moored at Tower Marine and you had to zig-zag through the lake to avoid grounding. I would assume it isn't any better today. That marina has to be an hour to Lake Michigan, under two bridges. The lake chart shows very little water east of the bridges. The actual address is 6269 Wiley Rd, Douglass, MI. Find it on google maps.

This map does not look correct, is this the office location maybe? Always thought it was east of 31 and Douglas, Tower Marine was fine this year, just dont go straight across the lake, the buoys mark the way out well.
