    Not a good place. Diesel was the highest priced east of the Mississippi. $4.19. Stayed on the wall, what a mistake! Had to take apart the power pedestal to fit plug in. No help from staff docking or any other way. Only 1 30 amp and 1 50 amp. The wall slips are absolutely brutal if the wind starts blowing from the lake. Boat slammed around like a toy. Harbor very rough. Sidewalk is right next to boat so always people looking in. Long walk to get anything— Go elsewhere.

    For such a large marina, the setting felt rather intimate, probably because it is surrounded by a park on one side and very nice condos on the other. As their website suggests, stop at the fuel dock on your way into the basin (starboard side) to check-in at the dockmaster's office. You'll need to get the security key for your dock gate. Although the docks are fixed, they are in very good condition. Fingers are long enough to allow our 36 foot Grand Banks to tie bow-in and still get on & off the boat. We were pleasantly surprised to find the bathroom and shower facilities in such nice, clean condition, especially since we were here over a very busy July 4th. And the air conditioned bathrooms were a big bonus! They were about 100 yards from our slip, but conveniently located right next to a bar, a hamburger joint, and a great ice cream shop! There are several eating establishments within walking distance, both beach casual and dockside "dining". Great view of the lake and breakwater as you stroll along flower lined sidewalks.

    Untrained staff. Attendant sprayed me with gas because she did not know how to put hose nozzle in gas tank, Pump out service also unskilled. Computer was down. No help with docking.

    Transients are wedged into bulkhead slips with 2' wide old wooden steep ramp alongside public access walkway in downtown Buffalo, 1/2 mile from the showers. Advertised Wi-Fi was inaccessible from the slip. Could not wait to leave.
