“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.
