About

Located along the Northeast shore of Lake St. Clair, Marine Park meets all your vacation and recreational needs - camping, boating, picnicking, swimming, fishing, and playgrounds. Known as one of the Best Sport Fishing Areas in Ontario the marina is host to several fishing events.

 

The campgrounds cater to a family atmosphere with strict adherence to a quiet period at night. So lean back in your lawn chair on a clear, starry night and we'll ensure the only sounds you hear are the croaking of frogs and the crackling of a campfire.

In October 2020, Mitchell's Bay Marine Park joined the Great Lakes Plastic Cleanup, with cleanup and capture technology installed thanks to the support of Ontario's Ministry of the Environment, Conservation and Parks. Watch this space for more updates!
