The Marina of Choice on the Cheboygan River

NOAA Nautical Map

There are so many reasons to choose Anchor In Marina in Cheboygan, Michigan... we hardly know where to begin. But we'll try nonetheless.


It starts with our remarkably perfect location for boating Northern Michigan's famous Inland Waterway and the incredible sights of the Straits of Mackinac.


We're blessed to have such a wonderful location here at Anchor In Marina. We're located at the confluence of the Cheboygan and Black Rivers, just a short ride to the Straits of Mackinac and right at the gateway to all the Inland Waterway has to offer.


From Anchor In Marina on the Cheboygan River you can cruise the rivers, boat your way through Mullett Lake and on to the Indian River and Burt Lake or you could simply glide up the Black River. Visit the villages of Indian River and Topinabee in just a short little trip. From the Anchor In Marina you can yacht your way to Mackinac Island or around the Tip of the Mitt to Harbor Springs, Petoskey, and Charlevoix. This is your home for exploring most of northern Michigan by water. You can see where we are by zooming in on the NOAA Nautical Map above and look for where the Black River meets the Cheboygan River.


And we're close to historic downtown Cheboygan which is known as the Gateway to the Waterways for a very good reason. By either boat or car, there are great shops and restaurants right nearby!
