Sailboat Docks Lake Ponchartrain LA

Greetings folks, I'm new to this forum and noticed that there were some threads about Sailing Lake Pontchartrain, but I'm already here however, I'm being kicked out of my berth (dock) as the owner wants all covered berths (having a Vega '27 sailboat just won't fit!). So I'm looking for a berth on the north shore. However given that I'm new to the area, I don't know where there are any Marinas besides those around Madisonville but they are too expensive for me (retired on SS). Can anyone help out with finding a place? I don't need much, MAYBE electricity, however I can bring a generator if needs be. I've read some posts and will be calling locations in the next few days, but any help in choosing a spot would be gratefully accepted. Thanks in advance, Hal

That's where I am now, but the berth is closing, Marina Del Ray (which is the really big marina locally) is too expensive. Another marina is to far up river to be practical. Not sure about other locations in the area. Hal

dr hal--i sailed out of slidell from eden isles for near year--- once into oak harbor and you meet folks, more options arise, as eden isles has many private docking availabilities, those are just a lil difficult to find without being there
. best of luck to ye. is a beautiful area. .

Re: Sailboat Docks Lake Ponchartrain LA

A second vote for Mandeville. There are a lot of small inlet harbors so it's a little bit of homework.
