Clay / Algonac

Sharing a border and a woven history of nautical lore, Clay Township and the City of Algonac unite to welcome visitors to their naturally diverse area.  Their plethora of waterways and untamed surroundings make these communities a destination for sportspersons, paddlers and nature lovers.  Clay encompasses hundreds of out islands teaming with game species, song bird and aquatic wildlife and includes charming Harsens Island which is accessible by ferry from Algonac.  Algonac embraces its nautical contributions, being the birthplace of Chris Craft Boats and the former home of Gar Wood. Situated on the St. Clair River, it has earned the nickname of “The Pickerel Capital of the World.”

Take advantage of the free boat launch and the Algonac Harbor Club, one of the largest deep water marinas accessible by the Great Lakes.  While in downtown Algonac, stroll along 1,800 feet of boardwalk and visit the Algonac-Clay Historical Museum which boasts local history with models of pleasure boats built right in town. There is also ferry access to Walpole Island, Canada.

Enjoy a day of freighter watching from the land or cast your line from a boat.  Algonac State Park rests here on the banks of the St. Clair River. If your passion is the outdoors, this area will suit you well. Come, spend some time in Clay and Algonac and discover the up north atmosphere without the up north commute.
