Because Henry C. Warren conveyed the Wetlands to RHOA in 1966, RHOA holds the fee simple title to the 125 acres of the Galien River Marsh adjacent to the Lake Michigan Riviera subdivision. As the fee simple owner, RHOA controls the slips located within those 125 acres, and therefore, has established procedures for RHOA members to share in the use of those slips. However, there are no motorboat mooring spaces currently available for sharing. Please refer to the Wetlands Use Guidelines to review the policies that govern sharing. If you would be interested in a mooring space when one becomes available, please ask and you will be added to the waiting list, which is currently empty. The annual mooring fee is $250. More information can be found under the link below:
RHOA members can launch canoes and kayaks from two docks at a slip located near the corner of Ash and Riviera Drive, an area owned by RHOA and referred to as “Quiet Cove”. To find the site, walk down the hill to the first dock (marked) at the head of the Quiet Cove slip. To find the other dock, follow the path at the right of the slip for about 150 yards from the bottom of the hill. This dock is on the left side of the path and is installed from early spring through the fall. A storage rack is located on the right side of the pathway near this second launching dock. The fee for using the storage rack is $100 per kayak/canoe. To obtain a permit, click on the link below:
Fees for the Boat Mooring and for the Canoe/ Kayak Storage are payable to Riviera Home Owners Association
