De-Tour-Village is a small community location on the eastern tip of Michigan's Upper Peninsula. Only 500 permanent residents and about two dozen local businesses can be found in this little town that has only 2 traffic lights, yet Detour Village is big on attractions and is a great place to get away from it all and relax. First of all, it's known for its' fishing, boating and hunting. There are two state campgrounds nearby at DeTour State Forest and Lime Island and a full service, 88-slip marina is located in town. DeTour Village is widely regarded as one of the best salmon fisheries in Michigan, and fishing is also excellent for perch, walleye, herring and pike. Snowmobiling is the other big sport in the area, where beautiful wooded trails give great views of the river and Canada. Some of the other attractions in town include the DeTour Reef Lighthouse and the Detour Botanical Gardens, which are the northern most gardens of this kind in the state. The Detour Museum and Maritime Park, which is located on the ferry dock, showcases 200 years of history of the area. Other nearby points of interest includes Drummond Island and Caribou Lake, and Detour Village is also host to an annual Winterfest Celebration, usually held in February.

De Tour Village 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.
