The most popular launch ramps on Lake St. Clair include the northern Fair Haven DNR Ramp, centrally located Selfridge DNR Ramp, Harley Ensign DNR Ramp at the end of the Clinton River, Fair Haven DNR, and the Algonac DNR Ramp on the North Channel.

Update July 28, 2023

All the popular Macomb & St. Clair County ramps are open, with the exclusion of the Clinton River Cut Off Boating Access Site in Macomb County near Crocker & 16 Mile Road AND THE UPCOMING CLOSURE for two years beginning August 1, 2023 of the 9 Mile & Jefferson Avenue City of St. Clair Shores Launch Ramp for area infrastructure improvements.

However, as of July 28, 2023, The Clinton River Cut Off boating access site in Macomb County may reopen late September 2023 once repair is completed to the current ramp conditions.  There are close alternative locations, including Lake St. Clair Metropark (park fee to launch), DNR Harley Ensign and DNR Selfridge boating access sites (see map below).

The good news with water levels down, the Middle Channel/Muscamoot 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.
