The city is approximately one half square mile and is surrounded by Independence Charter Township. The population was 882 at the 2010 census.OverviewClarkston is a small community in the northern outskirts of the Detroit suburbs. Located with easy access to I-75, Clarkston offers a direct route to downtown Detroit and Flint. US 24 begins nearby in Independence Township as a north-south highway.The jurisdiction of the city government is limited to a relatively small downtown area commonly referred to as "the village." Most people living in the much larger surrounding area of Independence Township refer to themselves as living in Clarkston. Most addresses within the township use "Clarkston" as the USPS preferred city name. Very few residents describe themselves as living in Independence Township. The township and city both use "Clarkston" as a mailing address and are served by Clarkston Community Schools.In September 2008, the pilot episode for the new HBO show Hung was shot at Clarkston Junior High School in downtown Clarkston. The show revolves around a baseball coach. HBO paid students of the high school to be extras in scenes where they were fans in the crowd of a basketball game.
