Fay's Point Marina
Blue Island, Illinois - IL, United States
Welcome to Fay's Point Marina!
Built in 2006, Fay's Point Marina sits on the Little Calumet River, just 25 minutes south of downtown Chicago. The marina hosts 88 boat slips for vessels up to 40' LOA, with 30amp shore power. The area is surrounded by storm management ponds and wetlands, providing habitat for native species of plants and small animals.
Many community members have already made Fay's Point Marina a second home. Between weekend relaxation, aquatic sports, golfing, and barbecue gatherings, you'll never run out of ways to spend your hard-earned free time. Available for patrons is an on-site gazebo, firepit, and many barbecue grills. The entire marina is surrounded by a long boardwalk that ends at an overlook featuring a view of the Little Calumet River.
Wildlife such as beavers, muskrats, turtles, coyotes, deer, opossums, herons, egrets, cormorants, red tail hawks, and even occasionally bald eagles are commonly spotted. The return of the natural shoreline has enhanced the ability of fish to find shelter and forage, with the underside of the floating docks offering food and cover, and the “bridge” ponds connecting the docks to shore act as shallow wetland nurseries for baby fish and amphibians. June brings a rash of nesting snapping turtles and when found the nests are protected by staff. Most importantly, the river edge being maintained in a natural state helps complete the natural corridor as it connects to adjacent forest preserves.
