Kite U.S. Forums _ Travel _ Directions to MBAY (Mitchell's Bay) from the US side

Posted by: JoeBidawid May 27 2004, 04:45 PM

I drove to MBAY (Mitchell's Bay) a couple of days ago for the first time this year and found it remarkably easy to get to if you follow the signs, here are the directions if you are going through Windsor.

Take the Bridge or Tunnel and proceed East on 401, look for highway 2, Queen's line. After you get off the exit, follow the sign to Mitchell's Bay. You will be making a few turns, so be on the lookout for the signs. It took me an hour and 20 minutes from Royal Oak and I left around 3:00 pm.

To return, Make a right turn on Winter Park road and follow it until it ends, make a right and follow the signs for 401, it's that easy.

Hi all,
Just an FYI regarding getting to Mitchell Bay this weekend. I live in Troy Michigan and did some routing thru my GPS to find the fastest way to MBay. It showed taking the ferry at Algonac to Walpole Island to be the fastest way. This definetely makes sense if you are in the northern suburbs of Detroit. I rode my motorcycle over to Mitchell Bay a couple of weeks ago and the ferry crossing was no problem. I waited for 1 ferry and was across the St. Clair River in about 15 minutes. Customs was a no-brainer (1 Customs officer for the 6-10 cars per ferry load). After crossing at Algonac, I'm guessing it takes maybe 30-40 minutes to drive to the Bay via Wallaceburg. The downside is that the ferries quit running about 9:00 or 9:30 pm and if your going to close down the bar at Mitchell Bay, you'd better have a place to stay! $5.00 each way on the ferry. Maybe Tim could offer some add'l tips/info/directions for those interested in avoiding the bridge/tunnel this holiday weekend.

I'm new to the sport and took one of the last Broneah weekend lessons last year. I'm looking forward to meeting up with all of you and getting the "skinny" on the Lake St. Clair scene. Great job on the site and keep up the good work!

I've driven both ways and it was about the same from Royal Oak, MI. If you live north of Royal Oak, Algonac is probably faster, south of Royal Oak, the tunnel is probably faster.

rltele, what's your name?
