Manistique is a lovely harbor town located in Schoolcraft County on the shores of Lake Michigan in the northern region of the state. It is just 88 miles from the Mackinac Bridge and sits on the banks of the Manistique River near Indian Lake State Park. The town of Manistique began as a lumber town and was also an important commercial fishing port. Today it's a busy tourism center with lots of outdoor activities and nearby attractions. It's considered the hub of Schoolcraft County, the perfect base for viewing many of the lighthouses and museums in the Lake Michigan and Lake Superior area. A boardwalk in Manistique runs along the shoreline for almost two miles and offers interpretive signs, a fishing pier, picnic areas and access to the East Breakwater Light (the boardwalk is also wheelchair accessible.) Manistique is also located on the edge of the Hiawatha National Forest, which offers fishing, hunting, camping, boating, canoeing, swimming, snowmobiling, dog sledding and cross country skiing. Nearby area attractions include Big Springs (Michigan's largest natural springs,) Indian Lake, Fayette Historic Village and the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. The village of Manistique has lots of quaint shops and restaurants for visitors, and a casino is also located in town.

Manistique Weather & Climate

Michigan's southeastern Upper Peninsula has a four-season climate of 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 Great Lakes affect all areas of the weather. 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 the location. Rainfall in upper Michigan is generally around 30 inches per year, with occasional thunderstorms in spring and summer. Autumn is often the best time of the year, with sunny, mild days and cool nights, perfect for Fall color tours.
