“Big Island Canoe Area”

Episode #906

Located in the Hiawatha National Forest in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, Big Island Lake Wilderness contains 23 small lakes ranging in size from 5 to 149 acres and the only way to reach each one is to portage in. After time spent in the wild we end our trip at one of the rustic celebrations the U.P. is known for, Folkfest.

Episode 1204 Curtis MI

Visit Curtis

Curtis is a place in the U.P. that most people have never been to and don’t know much about, so to quote an old friend, “It won’t hurt us to go Curtis.” We visit three large, nearby lakes with the same name - Big Manistique, Little Manistique, and North Manistique. We will enjoy fishing, hiking and friends galore.
