Whether it’s bird watching, windsurfing, kiteboarding, boating, bicycling or swimming, we’ve got it here on the shores of Lake St. Clair. Come bike, hike, jog or in-line skate on our paved trail or hop out on the water from our marina. Better yet, jump in for a swim in the lake or our Olympic-sized swimming pool, featuring waterslides and a massive spray ground. Got a taste for golf? We’ve got that too. With a Par 3 course, an Adventure golf course to test your putting finesse, and a foot golf course too.
