Rowleys Bay Public Marina
** See below for important parking and use notices
The Rowleys Bay Public DNR Marina and Boat Launch is just steps away from our front door! Fishermen have the only direct access to legendary Four Foot Shoal, one of the best places to catch trophy king salmon in Lake Michigan—steelhead, brown and rainbow trout, northern pike, perch, walleye and small-mouth bass are also in abundance.
If you have a passion for water sports, you have to come to Rowleys Bay Resort. From canoeing and kayaking to sailing and windsurfing, you won’t find a better place in Door County for aqua adventures on Lake Michigan. We also offer the most direct access to the Mink River, one of the few unspoiled estuaries in the Great Lakes. The river flows through coniferous swamps, a large marsh and empties into Lake Michigan at Rowleys Bay.
Whether you’re pleasure boating or fishing, there’s nothing quite like seeing Door County from the water. It’s like having your own private playground on the water.
The free-to-launch public marina at Rowleys Bay features one paved lane and generous free parking. Select boat slips are available to rent and have water and power hookups. For information on non-guest overnight parking please see the front desk to purchase a permit.
* Please note policies and permissions are set by the Wisconsin DNR. See the marina map for more details. Contact the front desk for permit details and to check-in. Please observe all docking, loading, and parking rules and courtesies.
