About Us

The River Raisin Marina & Campground is ideally located on the north side of the Port of Monroe Turning Basin, on the River Raisin in Monroe, MI. The Marina & Campground is owned and operated by John and Veronica with the help of their three daughters. They originally purchased the land for the River Raisin Marina while looking for a deep water location for their 50 foot sail boat. They purchased their 50' sail boat in 1987 and spent 5 years sailing throughout the South Pacific. Their sailing took them to Australia, Tahiti, the Philippines, Hawaii, and many of the exotic islands scattered around the Pacific Ocean. When it was time to return to the United States, John single handedly sailed this boat from Japan to Santa Barbara, CA. 

Having over thirty years and 100,000 miles of sailing experience, they felt this was the ideal location for large and small sail boats. This location allows for deep water access (22 feet) into Lake Erie from the well protected waters of the River Raisin. The River Raisin Marina has 72 deep water wells. There is also a launch ramp with plenty of parking for cars and trailers. The Marina & Campground boasts 28 acres of park-like setting for boat owners and campers to enjoy. Located just east of I-75, exit 14, at 2502 East Elm Ave, the Marina is ideally located for minimal driving and maximum boating and camping.
