Along Macomb County’s waterways in Harrison Township, St. Clair Shores, Chesterfield Township and New Baltimore, there are more than 16,000 boat slips. The Michigan Department of Natural Resources hosts around 500,000 boat trips annually and its three public boat ramps rank among the most heavily used in the state of Michigan.

Lake St. Clair - Lake St. Clair is truly the heart of the Great Lakes. It has more than 430 square miles of fresh water and 160 miles of shoreline. The average depth is 10 feet, with a maximum depth of only 21 feet. The lake is one of the best freshwater fisheries in North America and also one of the busiest recreational waterways in the Midwest.

Clinton River - The Clinton River is one of the nation’s best urban paddling rivers. Anyone wanting to paddle the Clinton River should understand that sections can be challenging and the water can run very fast and high, especially after a rain event. You should always check the streamflow gage nearest to the area you are paddling to assess if the river is running high.

PROPERTY TAXES

Property tax is a tax paid on property owned by an individual or other legal entity, such as a corporation. Most commonly, property tax is a real estate ad-valorem tax, which can be considered a regressive tax. It is calculated by a local government where the property is located and paid by the owner of the property.
