Convenient restrooms, no wake, wave, or surge zone, picnic area, fish cleaning station, and freezer for your catch.

The Marina is located very near to Luddington's popular Waterfront Park. which includes pleasant walking trails, several bronze statues, an amphitheater for concerts, and a playground for the kids. The park is only 7 blocks  from the marin - a pleasant 
walk, or a quick 2 minute bike ride.

And about that water pressure mentioned above: We have a 2" main city water line feeding the marina for excellent pressure; even when everyone is washing their boats/showering/cleaning fish at the same time. So sail on over, dock at Thompson Marina and enjoy your stay!
