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, the Clinton River Cut Off Ramp, and the Algonac DNR Ramp on the North Channel (see map below).

Update March 20, 2024

All the popular Macomb & St. Clair County ramps will be open for the 2024 boating season with the exclusion of the 9 Mile Launch Ramp for 2024/2025 in the City of St. Clair Shores for area infrastructure improvements.

Please see map below for alternative locations during the 9 Mile Launch Ramp closure.


Clinton River Cut Off Updated March 20, 2024:

Update!  Dredging began March 18, 2024 and should be complete this week at the Clinton River Cut Off Boating Access Site.  Dredging was required due to very shallow conditions where new ramp is now located.

The Clinton River Cut Off Boating Access Site reopened March 8 with a new launch ramp and expanded parking. However, please note dredging & intermittent closures during late March.
