Newburgh Pointe

Newburgh Pointe is located on the shores of Newburgh Lake. This 152-acre lake was cleaned in 1998 through a Rouge River National Wet Weather Demonstration Project, and stocked with bluegill, bass and other pan fish.

The lake was originally constructed as a millpond around 1819. In 1935 the old mill was demolished by Henry Ford and replaced with a new "Village Industry Plant". A new dam was also built by the Wayne County Road Commission as a cooperative venture.

The historic comfort station offers a canoe concession and fishing docks during the summer. Newburgh Pointe is a beautiful area with two finger piers for fishing and a small boat launch. You can stroll around the lake on a hiking trail or ride your bike on the Hines Bike Path that crosses the site and connects to the I-275 bike trail.
