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.
