Welcome to HPA!

Located on the picturesque Southern Shores of Lake Michigan, the Hammond Port Authority is just 20 minutes by land or 12 nautical miles from Chicago.

Please join us for one of our upcoming events… or just for a day of relaxing fun.

Many thanks to Joey Lax Salinas for allowing us to use his wonderful photos of the Hammond Marina for all of us to enjoy.
