Lakeshore Marina and Yacht Harbor, Slidell

Anybody know anything about this marina? There is a listing on AC but the website listed doesn't work and there is only one review from sometime in 2015. The satellite view doesn't show a marina.

The Marina at Lakeshore Louisiana - Lakeshore Louisiana

To see on google maps, google the address then move west through the canal and you'll see the docks and dry storage building.

Thanks, I did a different search and found it. Was beginning to think it was one of those condo developments that never took off. Strange there aren't any more details or reviews in AC.
We are planning to relocate our boat from Galveston Bay, Clear Lake, and will make a road trip in the near future to check it out in person.

I think AC gets more reviews from transients and this dock is primarily local and largely the immediate area.

That area of the Lake and surrounding developments took a very big hit during Katrina. It was within a home development subdivision. Last time I was there maybe one in ten of the homes had been rebuilt. The marinas did have some boats in them but I am not sure as to what obstacles were left or cleared from the channels. It has been about six years since I was in the neighborhood.

Any reason why Slidell, Madisonville only 20 west. Much better boating community. IMO

We'll check it out. Really just looking for a place to park the boat. We'll come down every so often and plan to go out for 3-4 weeks at a time.

Why so far from home? Just curious if you have a connection to the area. If to enjoy New Orleans, then why not keep it in New Orleans?

Beau Chenes is a top rated marina. You never have to worry too much about bad storms coming right off the lake. In fact this marina is a great hurricane hole. Other marinas on the south side of lake will make you move with any named storm. South shore marinas are City owned and managed, no after hours and no weekend personnel on duty.
Seabrook is privately owned. First class marina but in an industrial area....If you want the southside and just interested in keeping you boat safe in protected waters with a full service boat yard, Seabrook is the place.

Beau Chenes is on our list to check out. Will also add Seabrook.

We've had a boat in Clear Lake since 1998, on and off. There are really very few destinations in Galveston Bay and we have been to most of them, more trips up and down the Houston Ship Channel than I care to remember. We want to have the boat somewhere where we can head out for 3-4 weeks at a time without having to do the ship channel and then the ICW. We think that once we are east of the Mississippi that opens up all of the Mississippi, Alabama and a big part of the FL west coast.

We covered that area twice while heading out cruising, once heading south to the VI and then again heading north to Maine, and we would like to explore it in more detail.

Galveston Bay is OK for sail boat, you can just go sail around but with a power boat you really need a destination.

Also remember the good old days coming through NO and stopping in the NO Municipal Marina. Seem to recall it was 30 cents/foot.

According to a review on AC, Seabrook Marina on the Industrial Canal requires boats to be hauled in case of a hurricane. Is that the case or is there another Seabrook Marina?

Even though you are inside the protection flood structures at Seabrook, the army corp mandates that all vessels to be remove from the industrial canal including pleasure craft. I've been on their evac. list for 3 years in case of a named storm. Not sure if on the hard is better than in the water well secured.

I've left the Lake area and moved east to Gulfport, MS. for the same reason as you. Can easily be in AL in a day; or FL in 2.

Gulfport is also on our list. Which marina are you in? Gulfport is still within a days drive from us so that would work.

Biloxi and Gulfport are both getting some $ towards their marinas from BP. They are not well protected from storms though.
I would never think of hauling for a storm at Seabrook. Go on up and across the lake and up the river. There is way to much debris, old boats, lumber, falling down buildings, etc. that will go flying around there in a storm.

Bob, when you check out Gulfport (which we really enjoyed) look on the side of the marina office building where they have the water level from the last hurricane marked. It's scary. You are only a days cruise to Mobile where you can hide out up the river if you have to though.

I have stayed at Seabrook several times but only when we overnight. If we plan on staying a while, we go another 15 minutes to South Shore. A little better neighborhood IMO.

The rr bridge at Seabrook is down for repairs. No spare part available and they are going to have machine a new part. So access to the lake is unavailable for about six months!!!!

There is never just one way to get somewhere. You can go around or just come in at the Rigolets.
