Les Cheneaux Islands Trails

Kayak Les Cheneaux Island

Les Cheneaux Island (The Channel Islands) have beautiful white cobblestone beaches. The tightly clustered islands are sheltered from southeasterly winds. Most islands are lined with privately owned cottages. However, Government Island is all public land and overnight camping is permitted. The island makes a good place from which to launch day trips, or to visit the island itself.

Les Cheneaux Islands (French: meaning "The Channel Islands") are a group of 36 small islands, some inhabited, along 12 miles of Lake Huron shoreline on the southeastern tip of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan in the United States. The name is French for the channels, noting the many channels between the islands in the group. They are about 30 miles north and east of the Straits of Mackinac and about 35 miles south of Sault Ste. Marie. The islands are a popular resort and boating and kayaking area. The nearby communities of Hessel and Cedarville on the mainland offer marinas, camping, lodging, restaurants, and shopping. The Les Chenaux Islands Antique Boat Show & Festival of the Arts has been held on the second Saturday of each August since 1976 in Hessel. It is the world's largest antique wooden boat show.

906-484-3935 is the phone number to use for information on the wildlife viewing.
