A huge thank you to this staff for going above and beyond to take care of probably 200 Loopers that needed extended stay over a course of a month. Thank you for taking care of all our packages, taking us to Walmart and the grocery store and extending your season. We appreciate and thank each of you. Jodi and Karen MV Dos Gatos Locos.

Hope and Dreams Power 30 ft 3.5 ft

The Hammond folks are overwhelmed. It's a huge marina and it's hard to keep up with bathroom cleaning, and other essentials. The folks at the front desk are very kind. And the price is right. They also will drive you to Wal-Mart if you don't want to walk across the bridge. We thought the casino would be cool to hang out and watch football and have fun. But Indiana allows smoking in their casinos, so we lasted 10 minutes and had to leave. Even the non-smoking section is like the 1980s bars. That was unfortunate.

Moon Dance IV Power 39 ft 3.5 ft

Large marina serving local boaters but has lots of transient slips. It is quite busy on the weekends. Long walk to office. Grocery a little over a mile away and Walmart is 1.5 miles but it would be a difficult walk as it is along a access ramp. Several nice beach just a short dinghy ride away.

Adjacent to busy train lines with multiple level crossings so the horns blow day and night. If you have a dog sensitive to noise, they will not like it here. Also, getting the dogs to grass is a real hike. Noticeable door of sulphur in the area. Washrooms and laundry are located on the dock though. Very reasonable price for slip and laundry. Well protect from wind.

Good place to position for Cal-Sag or Chicago or to leave the boat for a period. Skyway Yacht Works did an in-slip oil change for us.

Irish Lass Power 45 ft 4.0 ft

We stayed here for two weeks in Aug/Sept 2021.

A very large, secure, deep water marina Good wind/wave protection from all points.
Solid floating docks
Excellent fuel dock
Good dining at adjacent casino
Good Uber/Lyft or train access to city and shopping
Lots of Looper traffic, preparing for the voyage down the rivers
MUCH cheaper that Chicago marinas

5+ minute walk from W Dock to shore or office.
Bathrooms and laundry on the docks were atrocious.
Power pedestals were filthy.
Slips from S Dock inshore are narrow, Larger vessels should be clear about beam requirements.

We left our boat here for a week unattended without incident. Locals and marina staff were very helpful in watching it for us. Despite the negatives noted, we will use this marina again.

Liberty Call Power 46 ft 4.5 ft

A very large marina that makes for a long walk off the pier and twice that to get to the office. Fuel was $3.09. Power pedestals need cleaned as do the bathrooms. About 1/2 the bathrooms are out of order. We were charged $20 cash to get a gate key which can't be returned before 0830. If you leave early you have to turn it in the day before and not be able to get back on the pier. All the other marinas we have stayed at have this solved so very disappointing. With the long walk to off the pier they have added two doggie pee stations along the main pier. Areas near the marina have limited grass to walk the dog. Easy layover for starting down the rivers.

Soulmate Power 60 ft 4.5 ft

Hammond Marina docks and walkways are in good condition. The dock pedestals are not clean or being maintained properly. The bathrooms were disgusting and the secure bathrooms were out of order. Diesel fuel was $3.09 Labor Day weekend. The fuel dock last boat fuel time of 4:15 on weekdays should be noted. I was told on radio if I arrived at 4:15 that I would not be fueled. I arrived at 4:05 to be safe. WiFi is adequate. The marina is secure and the Lakefront is very nice. The adjacent casino has dining available. Hammond is an excellent Marina and going down the Cal Sag which is only 3 miles away.

Janthina Power 48 ft 5.0 ft

It is difficult to write a fair and complete review of Hammond Port Authority Marina when you are there Sunday afternoon of Labor Day weekend. The marina was alive with all sorts of boats, from jet skis to 60 foot motor yachts. We were using the marina to stage for the Calumet River which is a short two miles from the marina. Hammond is a big marina. We were on Dock "W", close to the entrance and gas dock. Staff was very helpful with reservations and also on the crowded gas dock, helping us with a pump-out.

The docks were in good shape and the slips were sufficiently wide to make it easy to get in and out. Approach and fairway depths were over 20 feet. Power and water were no problems. We did not avail ourselves of much else as there was a $20 cash deposit for key cards and it was not possible to return them until after the gas dock opened in the morning (0830 hrs). As we were leaving early, we declined the keys and therefore stayed out of the casino and other amenities.

For bigger boats staging for entry into the river system from the lake, this is a good alternative at a reasonable price. It is also an alternative location to stage a visit to Chicago.

Kessel Run Powerboat 48 ft 4 ft

50Amp power plug did not provide 240 volts ac so we didn’t have air conditioning. No one helps with lines or finding the right slip, some of which aren’t marked. No where to drop key card when leaving. 0.25 miles to gate and .5 miles to office.

A Note from the Marina:

Snag-A-Slip reached out to the marina manager for further comment but did not hear back regarding this review

COCONUTS Power 49 ft 4.0 ft

Huge marina with good depth for our 4’ draft boat and very well protected from the big lake. Main office and small store are in what appears to be new buildings and the docks are in decent shape though it is a LONG walk to the office. Most bath house exteriors are covered in ancient spider webs; inside is dated but clean though there is one bath house in much better condition. The casino nearby has a number of eateries inside that are OK; the Six Street Bar has a good selection of excellent craft beers. Using Uber and Lyft, we went into the city for sightseeing and had a nice day visiting the German U-boat, Navy pier, and Chicago architecture river tour. We could have easily stayed another day or two for more sightseeing and a ballgame, but moved on.
