Sarnia to Toledo

Can anyone recommend some anchorages along the way? We draw about two feet and are looking for some advice on places to break the trip up. Also I'm looking for a place to leave my boat in Toledo for about 8-10 days. Thanks

You can anchor in Amherstburg on the way down. Toledo Beach is probably your best bet for and extended stay.

Cheers Joli

There are not a lot good anchorages along that route.

One of the issues is crossing back & forth across the border. If you anchor, you need to check in.

Down the St Clair river their are some calm weather anchorages downstream of some of the islands. On Lake St Clair, with a 2' draft you might get in to Muscamoot bay. The anchorage up Black Creek near the Metro Beach Metro park is definitely a good spot.

Crystal Bay is a great spot on the Canadian side of the Detroit River.

Toledo is a free for all at the muni marinas downtown. Nobody seems to know who is in charge. They are free but who knows about security.

There are some marinas on Lake Erie at the mouth of the Maumee that might be worth looking into.

Bassett's about 25ft deep but shallows quickly towards the edges. There's current that runs through it and the bottoms a bit weedy. Being right at the north end of lake st claire it was about 35nm north to Sarnia and 40 south to Crystal Bay. It was a good spot to anchor and break up the trip south for us.
