DNR Launch Ramp Status – Lake St. Clair
June 1, 2022: DNR Boat Ramps Status around Lake St. Clair, North & Middle Channels (Muscamoot Bay). All the popular Macomb & St. Clair County ramps are now open with the lake levels down, with the exclusion of the Clinton River Cut Off Boating Access Site in Macomb County near Crocker & 16 Mile Road.
The Clinton River Cut Off boating access site in Macomb County is temporarily closed due to unusable ramp conditions. Construction will likely be completed in October. There are two alternative locations, including Harley Ensign and Selfridge boating access sites (see map).
The good news with water levels down, the Middle Channel/Mascamoot Snooks Access on Harsen’s Island across from Brown’s Bar and the Decker’s DNR Access on the North Channel in Clay Township are both high and dry.

Although mostly underwater the last two season’s, the Snooks Access was still being utilized due to it close proximity to Little Muscamoot Bay. The Decker’s site had been completely shut down the past two seasons due to high water and erosion of the parking lot.
