Nestled in a protective cove next to the Hardy Dam, the Marina offers access to 17 miles of open waterway, with miles of undeveloped shoreline. The Marina currently offers 35 boat slips with seasonal slips available. It also houses one of the best daily boat launches on Hardy Pond. The Marina also offers potable water, vault restrooms, and a pump-out service. Hardy Marina also has two parking lots on the South side of the road, which is a trailhead for Michigan's Dragon at Hardy Dam and The Hardy Dam Rustic Trail. Vehicle permits are required in all Marina parking lots.
Seasonal boat slips are available through a waiting list system. Due to high demand, we start a new waiting list every year. To be added to the list, you must contact the Marina Manager after the Marina opens for the season. To be added to the waiting list for a seasonal boat slip for 2024, please contact Hardy Marina on or after May 26, 2023.
Hardy Pond Water Level Update
Hardy Pond visitors, please note that Consumer’s Energy started lowering Hardy Pond on November 1st, 2022, and keeping the water levels low until Friday, May 26th, 2023. Therefore, boat ramps at Sandy Beach County Park and Hardy Dam County Marina may not be available until May 26th.
Also, Hardy Pond levels may be lowered starting Tuesday, September 5th, 2023. We can not guarantee the availability of our boat ramps or docks after this date. Please make your camping reservations accordingly if you wish to boat while camping at Sandy Beach. We will not be renting docks for any date after September 4th, 2023. Consumers Energy will not have an official decision on this until June of 2023, but we are letting our customers know now about this low-water possibility.
