Harsens Island

Harsens Island, located between Algonac and Canada, is about an hour from Detroit and many Metro Detroit communities. Harsens Island is a 17-mile-long horseshoe-shaped lowland island at the top of Lake St. Clair, which is the lake (with its river) separating Lake Huron from Lake Erie. The island is bounded by Muscamoot Bays and the North, Middle and South Channels of the St. Clair River. The Champion Auto Ferry, which carries visitors and their vehicles, provides primary access to the island.

About 1,300 residents live on the Island year round, but the population swells to about 5,000 in the summer months when part-time islanders from Metro Detroit and beyond come to relax in their cottages. 

Visitors and residents enjoy the historic charm of the island with its beautiful old homes, marshes teeming with wildlife such as foxes, swans, herons, geese and ducks. They also love the fabulous views of freighters and ships from all over the world passing through the Shipping Channel.
