Hemmed in by I-75, Dixie Highway, and industry on the River Raisin, Sterling State Park clings to a watery postage stamp of land on the shore of Lake Erie. Just outside Monroe, the park’s day-use area is a popular beach and busy boat launch. The back end of the park is a patchwork quilt of man-made lagoons and an impressive marsh complex. A paved path traces the edge of the marsh and features scenic overlooks and interpretive aids that will add to your appreciation of the park.
