Chain O'Lakes (www.colmarina.com) is an upscale marina offering spacious slips, many with electric and water, plus in/out service, on-premise boat repair, fuel and pump-out services. My wife really likes the clean and private showers and restrooms (with locks). They also have a Marine Supply Store, with lots of Inflatibles, boats supplies and maintenance items. Col Marina is near downtown Fox Lake restaurants and bars, and Antioch, Johnsburg and McHenry. It's within walking distance of Pug Mahones. Great for a quick burger and beer after spending the day on the boat. Their website is: www.colmarina.com. And, their email is: colmarina @ comcast.net. Located on the southern end of Fox Lake, they are especially convenient for anyone living between Chicago and the Chain Of Lakes waterway.
This will be our 5th year at Chain O'Lakes Marina. We visited several area marinas when we purchased our first boat in 2007 and no marina provided the insights and advice like the people at COL Marina. As new boaters, we didn't know anything and they took good care of us. Five years later, we still feel they are the best. They offer everything including a outstanding ship store for all your supplies and cool inflatibles. They have slips with electric and water, in/out service, on-premise boat repair, fuel and pump-out services, free Wi-Fi, private bathrooms and showers. They care about you and your boat.
Services at this Marina is second to none. We've tryed allot of the marina's around the fox lake area and not only are they centralized to the lakes but they know what there doing
