The Harbor

The harbor is owned and operated by The Oshkosh Yacht Club. From Memorial Day to Labor Day, Oshkosh Yacht Club members use the harbor for their privately owned sailboats. Yacht Club members will not use the harbor during your event. You and your guests are welcome to arrive and depart by boat. If you know of someone arriving by boat to your event, please let us know so that we can advise where to park.


The Waters includes  a free parking lot connected to the venue. The lot has 100+ stalls along with 5 handicap accessible parking spaces. Vehicles are allowed overnight and should be picked up at the earliest convenience the next day.
