Cedar-River is a harbor town located in the heart of the Escanaba State Forest between the towns of Menominee and Escanaba on Michigan's Upper Peninsula. The oldest settlement on the shores of Green Bay along Lake Michigan, Cedar River began as a mill town in 1854. There are recreational harbor facilities located at Cedar River, and outdoor activities include fishing and boating, hiking, mountain biking, hunting, camping, snowmobiling and cross-country skiing. The J.W. Wells State Park is situated on the shores of Green Bay approximately one mile from the town of Cedar River. It contains 178 campsites, many of them along the waterfront, along with hiking trails, swimming, fishing and horseshoes. This campground is open April through the middle of December. The Escanaba River State Forest and Hiawatha National Forest offer fishing and hiking, as well as cross-country ski trails, snowmobiling, snowshoeing, dog-sledding and ice fishing. Groomed snowmobile trails in the area connect to other trail systems that cross the entire Upper Peninsula. Other attractions in the Cedar River area include the Peninsula Point Lighthouse and Tower, the Sand Point Lighthouse and the "River Cities" of Menominee and Marinette.

Cedar River Weather & Climate

The State of Michigan is divided into two peninsulas, joined together by a suspension bridge. Heavy snowfalls in winter are the norm in the Upper Peninsula and in the northern reaches of the Lower Peninsula. Surrounded by the Great Lakes helps moderate temperatures, but even so, the average highs in January are near 10 degrees in the northern areas, and around 20 degrees in the southern reaches. The lakes help cool the shorelines on summer days and humidity is rarely a problem. Statewide annual precipitation is near 35 inches, with higher amounts in the Upper Peninsula along the Lake Michigan and Lake Superior shorelines. Michigan is on the fringe of the Midwest tornado belt, but as a general rule, the state experiences less of these storms than do other states.
