Notes:

Based on surface area Muskegon Lake is Michigan's 25th largest inland lake. The lake provides direct access to Lake Michigan through a navigation canal. Sailboat sales and supplies are available at Torreson Marine, are located on the southwestern end of the lake (Bluffton Bay), just South of the Lake Michigan canal. The volume and variety of sailboats on this lake is impressive. Catamaran sailors often gather at the"Harbour Towne" public beach just south of the Lake Michigan channel (Fulton Ave.). The occasional Lake Michigan car ferry or freighter may pass through, so sailors should stay aware. Amenities and recreational activities in this resort area are abundant. In addition to the five public access points are described below, there are approximately 10 private marinas along the lake.

Ramp A represent the launch at Snug Harbor - This ramp is located within the Muskegon State Park. This large park (over 1100 acres) provides many amenaties (in addition to the boat ramp), including camping. Due to low water levels, this launch is reported to be shallow (4-9-2013)

 

Ramp B represents the launch at Fisherman's Landing. This facility has a large parking area (250 vehicles), 5 launch ramps, restrooms, showers, picnic sites, swimming, and even camping. Due to low lake water levels, this ramp, along with Ramp D, offer the best lake access for larger boats.

 

Ramp C represents the Grand Trunk Launch on the corner of McCracken and Lakeshore Dr. This launch contains two ramps with short piers and is in close proximity to the Lake Express Ferry dock. Ramp fee is $10 per launch or a $40 (resident) / $55 (non-resident) annual fee.
 

Ramp D represents the launch ramps for the Muskegon - Hartshorn Marina
Hartshorn Marina is the only public marina on Muskegon Lake and has the following amenities: Water , Electricity (20, 30, 50A), Restrooms, Showers, Ice, Long Term Parking, Public phone, Dog Run, Day use dockage,  Grills/ Picnic tables, and WiFi/Internet. Transient and seasonal slips available. Phone (231) 724-6785 (Mid April to Mid October). The harbor can be reached on radio channels 9 and 69. Four launch ramps with 2 interviening piers constitute the boat launch.

 

Ramp E represents the Cottage Grove Public Access (also known as the Jaycees's launch). On the corner of Cottage Grove and Lakeshore Dr., this launch has 4 hard-surfaced ramps with short piers and is in proximity to Torresen Marine. Ramp fee is $10 per launch or a $40 (resident) / $55 (non-resident) annual fee. Due to low water levels, as of April 9, 2013, city officials recommend that only boats < 20' be launched from this location at this time.

 

Ramp F represents the launch available at the Harbour Towne Marina. The ramp is self-serve for the payment of the $10 daily launch fee. Seasonal launch permits are available. Transient slips and gas are available.

 

For Ice Boat sailors: The West Michigan Ice Yacht Club has produced an excellent map of lake access points for ice yachting on this lake. Their website should be consulted for conditions and additional information.

 

Although there is a Michigan DNR bathymetry (depth) map available, recreational sailors should download the NOAA Booklet Chart for this lake for navigation purposes.
