Boat Launch & Docks

We have docking and launching facilities available. There are several boat docking areas along our waterfront, as well as a boat launch. We also have several fishing piers for those who prefer to fish on shore.

There are three locations for transient boating:

1)    The dock by the Ambassador Restaurant
2)    By the Super 8 - the last 2 slips on the east side
3)    Anywhere broadside along the lakefront

For extended stays (up to 5 days) - please contact the Houghton Police Department and provide your name, phone number and vessel’s registration number.
