Ben Watts Marina maintains and stores boats like small fishing boats and larger houseboats located on Chain of Lakes in Fox Lake, IL.


Ben Watts Marina

started in 1954 by our namesake and founder. Today the marina is owned and operated by his third and fourth generations. We started by renting fishing boats, but over the years we have developed and expanded into a full-service marina located on sixteen acres with over 300 slips.

Ben Watts Marina maintains and stores boats from 12′ fishing boats up to 52′ houseboats. Most of our piers are equipped with electricity and water. At our launch ramps, we can launch or retrieve four boats at one time, and our travel lift has a capacity of 25 tons. We also operate two types of in-and-out services during the summer. In the winter, we store both inside and out.
