North Point Marina

This large marina owned and operated by the Illinois Department of Natural Resources has one of the largest concentrations of wintering gulls in the area. Rarer gulls such as Lesser Blackbacked, Great Black-backed, Glaucous and Iceland are often mixed in with the common Ring-billed and Herring. Many species of waterfowl, including scoters, Canvasbacks and Long-tailed Ducks, also use the waters of the marina and lake.
