Crystal-Falls is a unique town situated in the unspoiled wilderness of Northern Michigan's Upper Peninsula. This historical little village is built on a steep hill and is dominated by its imposing courthouse that is on the National Registry of Historical Places. There are several recreational sites near Crystal Falls, including Bewabic State Park, Runkle Lake, Pentoga Park on Chicaugon Lake and the Paint River. There are beaches, camping and picnicking facilities, tennis courts, boating and fishing, hiking trails; and golfing, canoeing, rock hunting and bird watching are all choices for visitors to enjoy. A little something for everyone! This northern wilderness area is sometimes chilly, even in summer, so visitors are advised to bring along a sweater or light jacket. Fall starts early near Crystal Falls, and the brilliant golds, reds and greens offers some fantastic photographic opportunities. Crystal Falls hosts two large events each year, the Humungus Fungus Festival in August and the Harvest Festival in September. The Humungus Fungus Festival got its start when a gigantic mushroom that weighed 11 tons was discovered near Crystal Falls. For three days in August, locals and visitors pay homage to the giant mushroom with a variety of games, food and fireworks. The Harvest Festival offers antiques and arts and crafts fair, lots of good food and a farmer's and gardener's market. The forests surrounding Crystal Falls are alive with wild game, deer and Michigan Black Bear. Drivers are directed to use caution.

Crystal Falls Weather & Climate

The Northwestern Region of Michigan's Upper Peninsula is a wilderness area with four seasons - mild summers, cool springs and autumns and cold winters. The climate is greatly influenced by Lake Superior, as well as cold, dry air coming from the Arctic region. The Lake acts as a giant humidifier, increasing the moisture content of the air throughout the year. In the winter, this moisture condenses as snow when it reaches the land, creating heavy snowfall, known as "snow squalls." The shores of Lake Superior are prone to this "lake effect" snow and have recorded up to 350 inches of snow in a single year. However, average snowfall for this area is 177 days per year. In summer, the cooling lake breezes have a positive effect on the climate, keeping it from becoming too hot and uncomfortable. This area has an average of only one-day per year when the temperature reaches 90 degrees F.
