Les-Cheneaux-Islands in Michigan's Eastern Upper Peninsula is a well-known vacation spot that is 35 miles east of the Mackinaw Island Bridge. The Les Cheneaux Islands resort area has a fascinating history, and is full of recreational opportunities. It is considered the best place in Michigan for kayaking, and other outdoor activities include boating, sailing, fishing and hunting, camping, hiking, golf, biking and bird watching. There is a nearby casino, and the islands are only a day trip away from Mackinaw Island, Soo Locks, Tahquamenon Falls, Drummond Island and the Straits Area. Springtime is beautiful in the Les Cheneaux Islands area where wildflowers and mushrooms abound, and fishing for brook trout, perch, pike and small-mouth bass is superb. The Islands area is an outdoor playground in summer, and they put on an old-fashioned 4th of July, with a parade and other festivities all day long, and ending with a spectacular fireworks display. The second weekend in August brings the annual Antique Boat Show, and an Arts and Crafts Fair along the waterfront in nearby Hessel. But the fun doesn't end in summer. Autumn brings Fall Color Tours and hunting, and fishing is still very good this time of year. Winter turns the Les Cheneaux Islands into a wonderland of ice and snow, with ice fishing, cross country skiing, skating and over 100 miles of groomed snowmobile trails. An annual Snowfest is also usually held during Presidents Weekend in February.

Les Cheneaux Islands 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.
