Show Introduction

Stretching from Lake Michigan's north shore to within five miles of Lake Superior, Schoolcraft county has a little of everything the UP has to offer. Wild rivers and pristine lakes, deep forests and a plenitude of wildlife combine to make a sportsman's paradise.

The downtown is exactly as you would expect of a town located in the heart of the Upper Peninsula. With most of the buildings dating back to the early 1900’s it maintains the charm of town from another era. People are friendly and crime is almost non existent.

The only real town in Schoolcraft County is Manistique. It is a place that is almost hidden from the rest of the state. With the nearest town of any size almost 50 miles away and surrounded by the Hiawatha National Forest on one side. The 90,000 acre Seney Wildlife Refuge on the east side and the shoreline of Lake Michigan to its south. There isn’t another town in the Midwest that allows an escape to Mother Natures Majestic Beauty like Manistique.

Native Indian tribes populated this area well before the first European exploration in the late 1600's. The name Manistique itself is derived from the original Indian word describing the reddish-brown color of the river which runs through the town.
