There’s this place in the eastern Upper Peninsula of Michigan. There are so many words to describe it! It’s an island in the St. Mary’s Seaway, North of Lake Huron, that is down to earth, friendly, relaxing, and fun… I could go on an on…
What’s relaxing about it… the remoteness offers the ability to sit on the shoreline in a lawn chair with an ice cold beverage and watch freighters from all over the world float by. The sunsets are amazing, and the wildlife is abundant!
The fun factor includes the miles of wooded trails that can be accessed by UTV’s, ATV’s, SUV’s, and Jeep’s. It’s a thing out there! The trails lead you to beautiful places like, the Fossil Ledges, and the Step’s at Marble Head. Regular Daily Driver Vehicles are not recommended for these trips. So load up whatever 4×4 you have access too and plan for an adventurous day in nature!
Fishing is a big deal around the Island as well… get in with the locals, and find out when the perch are biting. There are lots of great spots to tuck into around the bays for catching a great dinner. Walleye, Salmon, and Whitefish have their favorite hiding spots as well. Bring your fishing pole!
There are a couple of watering holes that you can trip on down to for a great meal, and local fellowship. My favorites: The Northwood, and The Bear Track. They both have great menu’s including fresh caught fish, and delicious steaks.
So make plans to visit Drummond Island soon! It’s worth the trip! You can catch the Drummond Island Ferry at Detour, Michigan for a quick trip across from the mainland.

Beautiful pictures. My Brother and his family go to Drummond Island every summer. Now I see why. I’ve been to Torch Lake. It’s a beautiful lake with wonderful sand bars. I’m a troll who loves Michigan!
I grew up on Torch Lake! ❤️
