Drummond-Island is called the "Gem of the Huron," and you'll understand why when you visit this picturesque island located one mile off the eastern tip of Michigan's Upper Peninsula. You can reach the island by ferry, plane or by car, and there are several ways to explore it once there. Car travel is one, and there are miles and miles of hiking and biking trails to enjoy, or you can rent a boat and get a different look of the island that way. In wintertime, there are over 100 miles of groomed snowmobile trails that offer views of the island not available in summer by car or by boat. There are even snowmobile tours across the ice to Canada available from Drummond Island! Fishing is very popular and is a year round activity on Drummond Island. Other ways to spend your time include playing golf, exploring the over 150 miles of scenic shoreline, photography, bird and wildlife watching, cross-country skiing, ice skating, shopping and visiting a nearby casino. There are two annual snowmobile races held on Drummond Island each year, and a Winter Carnival. And that's not all. Watch mountain bikers compete in a race over the ice of Potagannissing Bay to St. Joseph Island in Canada. This is the only mountain bike race of its kind in the country. There are also regular weekend "All You Can Eat Fish Fry" dinners, arts and crafts fairs, and a 4th of July celebration that starts off with a parade and has games, a pie-eating contest, foot races and fireworks at dusk.

Drummond Island Weather & Climate

Michigan's Eastern Upper Peninsula enjoys moderate summers and cold winters. For decades, visitors have been coming to this area to escape the summer heat and enjoy the cooling effect of the lake breezes. The Lakes affect all areas of the weather, and summers tend to be sunny as the cool water of the Lakes chill the air near the earth's surface, producing a stable atmosphere. In winter, the area becomes a wonderland of ice and snow, with an average of between 40-70 inches of snow, depending on location. Rainfall in upper Michigan is generally around 30 inches per year, with occasional thunderstorms in spring and summer. Autumn is sunny with mild days and cool nights - too cold for swimming, but just right for other activities such as fall color tours, antiquing, golfing, and exploring the lake-studded countryside.
