    OK, If you're looking for a night life and plenty of amenities, you'll be disappointed. We had a day trip up from Catawba Island. First time into the marina, FOLLOW YOUR CHARTS AND NAVIGATION AIDS. It's a little overwhelming first time in worrying about draft (even though the lake in 2019 was up).
    We docked and got tied up. The dock boy was doing his best (young and a bit inexperienced, but listened to instruction well and could get you in safely and tied up.)
    There is NOTHING at the marina, no bar, restaurant, etc... We weren't planning on any of that. We did rent bicycles and toured the island peddling (It's why we went). The bike place puts your bikes in the rack and you pick them up and leave them right there when you return.
    We enjoyed the peace and quiet that Scudders brings. Typical friendly boater atmosphere.
    Cindy helped us through customs calling and where the little ice cream store is located right off of the marina.
    The docks are very well kept and electric was strong.
    The reason for the 5 of 5 is that if you're looking for a place to relax and just kick back and have a great time, it's Scudder's. We are planning a rendezvous there in August of 2020 and sending a shuttle of our own over on the ferry from Sandusky Ohio. Plenty of B&Bs in the area for our non-boating friends.

    This is a quiet marina, with a gazebo you can cook/dine under. Friendly people. Bakery that is at least 4 star and Anchor & Wheel resturant also within walking distance. New marina manager is Pete.
    When coming here please respect those who come also for the peace and quiet.
    Restrooms and shower are not modern.

    Step back in time. This Island is a reminder of how simple life was 30 years ago. Nice clean marina with friendly people and easy customs clearance
