Heritage Harbor Marina


Heritage Harbor went above and beyond! They greater 12 boats who arrived about 9p. Was very organized and found space for everyone. They even kept the restaurant open late while Jeremy briefed the boaters on the rivers ahead. The marina is wonderful, clean, and plenty of space. Highly recommend staying there!


What a jewel on the Illinois. Great floating docks, well protected, great amenities (shower suites, tiki bar, restaurant Red Dog on property, pool) super friendly and accommodating staff, great briefing on the river by Jeremy, nice courtesy cars,etc. Can’t say enough. In fact we extended stay.


Great marina! Super staff, excellent amenities, reasonable rates.


Great friendly staf and beautiful location. Jeremy spent an hour with me going through the charts down the river toward St Louis
