Stony Creek Lake is located within the Stony Creek Metropark. An impoundment of Stony Creek (tributary of the Clinton River), the lake has a maximum depth of 23 feet. Watercraft are limited to a speed of 10 mph which creates a good environment for sailing. The boat launch area is indicated on the following Google map and contains 6 ramps and a grassy area. The park provides many family-friendly ameneties for the non-sailing family members. The lake is also home to an American Sailing Institute (ASI) learning fleet which features Interlake (18') class sailboats.
Several small boat sailors have gathered on this lake to create a mixed-class sailing club called the Creekfleet Sailing Club. Together they sponsor a weekly sailing series in the Summer and Fall with an emphasis on fun and education.

Last year lake weeds were not kept in check and became more of a problem. Hopefully this will improve in the 2012 season

Sail this lake all summer. North end of the lake is too weedy for sailing, but the majority is open. Lots of friendly boaters that are happy to share their knowledge to new boaters.
