Whatever your favorite recreational activity, whether it’s bird watching, windsurfing, kiteboarding, boating, bicycling, or swimming, you can pursue it at Lake St. Clair Metropark. A popular destination just a short distance from Mt. Clemens, come out to bike, hike, jog, or in-line skate on the paved trail that takes you along a one-mile shoreline on picturesque Lake St. Clair. Enjoy a day of boating with three marinas and eight ramps that provide easy access to Lake St. Clair waters. During the summertime, stay comfortable in an Olympic-sized swimming pool with waterslides, the Squirt Zone spray ground and a 1,000 foot-long sandy beach on Lake St. Clair. In the winter, enjoy ice-fishing for perch, cross-country skiing on groomed trails, a game of hockey or ice-skating outdoors with friends or family.

Lakeside, walk along a 1,600 foot boardwalk overlooking the one-mile shoreline. On the nature trails, hike through meadows, marshland or a grove of cottonwood trees while you observe wildlife and waterfowl. Together, the wetlands and lake shoreline make this a top bird-watching site, with more than 230 commonly-seen species. Explore Lake St. Clair Metropark’s nature center and trails, play the par-3 golf course, or Shipwreck Lagoon Adventure miniature golf course at your next picnic. Come throughout the year to enjoy the beauty of 770-acre Lake St. Clair Metropark.

*The 2015 Joint Permit for Huron-Clinton Metroparks and Oakland County Parks offers entry to all parks within both park systems.

NOTE: Michigan’s Recreation Passport, purchased for your Michigan license plate,  does not allow entry into the Metroparks.  The Huron-Clinton Metroparks is a separate regional park system than the Michigan State Parks, and requires its own entry permit.

A Metropark Boat Launch Permit, in addition to your vehicle permit, is required for boats that are trailered in and can be purchased at the Metropark tollbooth or Park Office. If your boat (canoe, kayak or rowboat) is transported into the park in or on your vehicle you do not have to purchase a Boat Launch Permit.
