Salmon Country Marina was established and incorporated in June of 1975. It has been a family owned and operated business for 40+ years. Before Salmon Country was a marina and campgrounds, it was a 200 acre dairy farm run by Alfred and Beatrice Blunt. When Alfred wasn’t farming, he loved his boat and fishing. At that time, Alfred had the biggest boat on the river, a 19 foot MFG. They soon realized that running a small dairy farm was no longer feasible. Luckily, they had the little Salmon River flowing right through their back yard! The next logical step was to run a family operated marina and campgrounds. Robert and Carolyn Blunt ran the family marina for 40+ years and decided to retire in 2022. Present-day operations are now run by their son and daughter-in-law, James and Julia Blunt. There are several other key members of running the business that keep the true meaning of being Family Owned and Operated! We offer a variety of services to make your boating experience smooth sailing. You may also enjoy our family friendly campgrounds! We hope to see you soon!

At Salmon Country, we specialize in the hauling and outfitting of sailboats of all sizes. Whether on a custom cradle or stands we can haul you and set you up for the winter or just set you up to get some work done. You can work on your own boat or hire us to do the work for you. We recently re-powered this Hunter 30 with a new Westerbeke Diesel and a Maxprop feathering prop.
Dennis Markle Best campground/marina on Lake Ontario. Friendly staff, plenty of places for kids to fish, boat maintenance, and family friendly outings. This will be year 6 for us and would not even think of going anywhere else
Kevin Keller By far the best family business that I’ve ever dealt with. The service is above and beyond what anyone could ask for. I run a charter boat out of this marina and they cater to all my needs. 5 ⭐️!!!
