How It Works

Barrington Boat Club Membership

Our memberships include access to top quality boats and even better customer service. Our attention to detail, from the cleanliness of the boats to the ease of making a reservation, will exceed the expectation of every member. Reserve your boat, and we will greet you at the dock with a smile. The boat will be gassed up and fully loaded with all the extras you need for a fun day on the water.

Top Quality Vessels

We only offer top quality boats at our convenient and beautiful ports in Barrington, Wauconda, and McHenry, Illinois.

Easy to Reserve

Members can reserve a boat with ease using our online reservation system. Simply choose the boat, location and date! Watersport equipment, snack and beverage baskets, and other amenities are also available with a few simple clicks.

Endless Activities

Anchor, float, cruise, fish, ski, or tube.  Members can enjoy delicious menu items from many of the local restaurants on the water. Simply pull up, tie up and enjoy!

We are conveniently located on the Lower Fox River in Port Barrington, Bangs Lake in Wauconda, and the Upper Fox River in McHenry.

Our boats are docked in Port Barrington, Wauconda, and McHenry –  a convenient location for residents of these towns and the surrounding areas. You can be out on the boat within about 15 minutes from home as residents in these areas. Members will enjoy full access to all the amenities of the location.

New in 2021! Visit our new launch location in McHenry! This location provides our members with access to the upper river and Chain of Lakes without having to boat through the locks.  Members can now enjoy the restaurants, sand bars, and various lakes with ease!

What do you need to bring?
Your Smile.

We want to make it as easy and fast as possible for our members to get out on the water, so we will stock the boat for you. Want to go tubing? Sking? These conveniences can easily be added to reservation. We also provide all the safety equipment, including adult life jackets for your use.
