The Wauconda Park District has boat slips and launch passes for your boating needs. Park District residents who had a marina slip in 2018 who wish to reserve the same slip number may do so between November 1 – December 15, 2018. If you would like to change to a different slip number for 2019 season, you must first reserve the same slip number you currently have, and then stop by the Park District office between December 15 – December 29 to put in a request to change your slip number at that time. A $100 deposit will be required to hold your slip; balances are due no later than Saturday, February 23, 2019.

Proof of residency, current driver’s license, license plate numbers for both car and trailer, and current watercraft registration are required at the time of registration. All issued cards must be listed in the same name as the person registering for a slip or launch pass in order to qualify for resident rates, no exceptions. Keys will not be issued unless all required information is presented. Seniors age 55 and over will receive 50% off of launch rates only.

NOTE: The address on the boat registration must match the address on the registration form to be given Wauconda resident rates.
