    While my reservation hasn't been cancelled just yet, it's looking more and more like it will be. We were set to spend the week of 6/22 in Grand Haven....but between the Gretch and the water levels my gut tells me we won't be able to spend the week there.

    What are some good marina's / ports everyone recommends in Wisconsin? I've got three kids, from 2 to 15 years old....so kid friendly activities are a must! We thoroughly enjoyed Grand Haven, South Haven and St. Joe a few years ago and were looking to repeat....but have no problem giving Wisconsin our tourism business while Michigan is shut down!

    Probably Kenosha and Racine. Towns are within walking distance of marina.

    Look up Fayette Michigan. It is over on the Wisconsin side. Its good for a day or two and not far from Sturgeon bay. It is a historical town preserved as a state park. Deep water harbor with no electric at the docks.

    Great recommendation and I love the UP! I've spent a week every July up there, my whole life.

    I left out, we're slipped on the southern edge of the lake, so really interested in destinations in the lower half.

    Racine if you want Southern Wi. Check their pool policies though. 10 people max and you have to reserve time right now.

    DaFish, what is the marina in Port Wa?

    Mike - the marina in Port Washington is the City of Port Washington marina (link below). We moved the boat from Reefpoint in Racine to Port Washington for this season. Harbor hopping north by season and by harbor until we get to the end of Door County.
