Boating, Fishing, and Travel Information for Sheboygan, WI
Sheboygan is located on the western shore of Lake Michigan at the mouth of the Sheboygan River. Sheboygan is bounded on the east by Lake Michigan. Blue Harbor Resort is located on a peninsula between the lake and the Sheboygan River’s last bend. This site was formerly used as the headquarters of the C. Reiss Coal Company (now a Koch Industries division). It was their base of operations for ships to load and unload coal for delivery along the peninsula. The Sheboygan River passes through the city, but dams in Sheboygan Falls prevent navigation upriver. Tall-masted boats are confined to the river downstream of the Pennsylvania Avenue bridge. Commercial charter fishing boats dock near the mouth of the river.
