This is our marina property located on Beautiful Georgian bay. We have great sun rises here early in the morning, you can launch a small water craft if you would like. Go for a walk down the dock or put in a kayak or paddleboard. We have a lounge area under the gazebo with a bbq and a propane fireplace.
No wood burning fires on property, propane only. Bring a tank of propane we will supply the fireplace.
No running generators after 10 pm
May have to share amenities with others
Be respectful of clientele during your stay

Awenda park, Kings Warf Theatre, Discovery Harbour, Diverse Rentals skidoo and boat rentals and tours, Saint Marie among the Hurons, Martyrs Shrine, Wye Marsh Wildlife, Miss Midland boat cruise. So many more things just ask
This was just the break we needed after being on the road. Unfortunately the weather was not the best. We did get out and tour this beautiful area. Our hosts went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed. We would love a return visit when we can enjoy the gazebo and have a chat
Our hosts were welcoming, which was especially considerate as I had made an embarassing scheduling error. They were very helpful in getting us hooked into power. The location felt unique, being right on the waterfront of this family run marina. We took advantage of the nearby bike trails and fresh pickerel fish dinner available at a number of locations. Evenings around the fire pit were filled with animated discussions and lots of laughs.
Michelle and Andy welcomed us to their awesome marina nestled on Georgian Bay. Their hospitality shared around a glowing fire will not be forgotten. We felt part of their family and were sad tolerable. Spectacular hosts.
Thanks Michelle and Andy!
We had a wonderful visit at Mintys. If you like boats, the location is fantastic with a great view. We enjoyed spending time with the owners pet parrots, and their cute and adorable chihuahuas. Would love to visit again sometime.
Good spot for a short stay to explore the area. Very nice hosts offering a comfy gazebo to relax in.
I,cannot say enough about how we were treated by our hosts….they got adaptors for our plugs so that we had electrical power..invited is to use their gazebo…walk on all the docks to look at the boats and just generally opened their arms to us. They have two adorable pug/Chihuahua crosses known as “Chugs”…Peso and Bella!. Additionally they have two very well trained parrots that sat on our hand…Yoshi and Peekachou…unfortunately now they are starting to take boats out of the water they may shut down hosting soon…simply no space but we were very happy with how we were treated!….can’t use their names but they know how peased we were…thanks so much!
Very welcoming and interesting people. Very relaxed.
I hope we keep in touch!
The place is spacious (big rig!) and super calm, looking at the boats.
We loved it.
Our Family, enjoyed our stay at and with MintysByTheBay. We could not ask for better first Boondocking experiences. The marina offer a great view from the Georgian bay. Our host were so welcoming, we felt like family. We recommend anyone that visit the Goergian bay to make a stop to MintysByTheBay.
Thanks for sharing your part of Georgian bay with us. Our family enjoyed everything!
Minty's by the Bay was too much fun. (I don't know if I should be saying that or not :))
Parking 4 feet from Lake Huron was amazing. What a view of the Marina, and fun watching the goings on.
Our hosts were gracious, and after hours found us swapping stories about travel, around the firepit. I hope you both get to do some traveling.
Definitely will be back if we are ever in this area again.
Thanks for being part of the Boondockers Welcome family.
We sent a request to Andy and Michelle in the last min after we found out there was no camping site available. We didnt have much hope to hear back from them, but to our surprise, they
accepted. They were welcoming and friendly, even invited us for dinner. The food was wonderful. We chatted for a couple of hours and had wonderful conversations. We really appreciate their hospitality! Thank you!
What a fabulous place to stay, especially if you love boating. We were able to bring our 17’ boat and Minty’s On the Bay even offered docking space overnight so we could go out boating again in the morning. Wonderful hosts, an excellent boat ramp and a very tidy, nicely run marina all round. We were delighted to find the space provided was right on the water with a perfect view of all the boats in the marina. The boating options are endless when you’re out on the water. This was our first Boondocker’s stay and it was a fabulous experience. Our hosts couldn’t have been more attentive and helpful. Great people - and pets!
We were honoured to be the first Boondockers Welcome guests to this site. We were greeted warmly and spent a couple of pleasant hours talking to the hosts. We guarantee you will enjoy your stay here and experience first hand the gorgeous sunrise.
