Fish Cleaning Station & Restrooms
The City of Ludington had a beautiful access to Lake Michigan for boaters and anglers with four docks and eight launching ramps, but its fish cleaning station and restroom facility were outdated and in disrepair.
F&V designed a new facility at the end of West Loomis Street mirroring buildings found along the riverfront over 100 years ago with a standing seam roof, gable shakes and molded brackets. The building, in front of the public beach and near the U.S. Coast Guard Museum, also featured concrete masonry and a wainscot of split-face masonry.
In addition to public restrooms, the new facility includes a covered fish cleaning station featuring four stainless steel tables with back and side shields allowing anglers to process their catch at the same time.
Each table has electrical receptacles for an electric carving knife, and a sprayer hose for anglers to clean their fish.
