Welcome to Harsens Island!

 About the Island

 

 

They call Harsens Island "Paradise", located at the top of Lake St. Clair and at the mouth of the St. Clair River in Clay Township, Michigan. Less than an hour from Detroit and Port Huron, it is a short ferry ride from Algonac, the mainland. Visitors and residents are drawn to the Island to soak up the beauty of the freshwater deltas, wildlife, freighter watching, and a host of other sights. Sportsmen are attracted to the abundance of hunting and fishing offered on the island.

 

Harsens Island is rich in history, from the pioneering days to the jewel of St. Clair River, where visitors would board the Tashmoo Park, opened in 1897 offered visitors a dance pavilion and other activities of their use. 

 

Generations of families have come to Harsens Island over the years either as a summer visitor or a full time resident. Today this lovely Island has nearly 2,000 full time residents, and from Memorial Day to Labor Day, that number swells considerably, as the "summer folk" come back to their cottages.
