Lake St Clair Metropark

Lake St Clair Metropark Harrison Twp MI review, pics, info for LSCMP nature center, pool, water facilities, playground, mini-golf course, par 3 golf course, marina, and more. Lake St Clair features nearly 4 surface miles of hike-bike trails, a boardwalk, and over 1000 feet of sandy beach overlooking Lake St Clair. Lake St Clair Metropark, formerly known as Metro Beach Metropark, has probably had the most impressive transformation of all the Metroparks over the past couple of decades and the improvements are astounding.
