About Drummond Island

It's not easy to describe Drummond Island without sounding cliche. The Island boasts a certain charm that is immediately evident upon arrival, but difficult to capture with words. Find information about specific attractions and events in the activities section of this site. For a cliched description of the island's atmosphere, read on. Things tend to move a little slower on the Island. People stop to chat about life, strangers honk and wave from their cars. Fishing reports regularly supersede news about the Dow Jones Industrials or the S & P 500. Rush hour traffic typically involves leaving 15 minutes early to get a spot on the ferry, rather than sitting in gridlock for an hour. Beautiful sunsets and frolicking wildlife are commonplace, but hardly mundane.

Located in Michigan's Upper Peninsula, Drummond Island is approximately an hour's drive from the Mackinac Bridge. It is accessible by car, plane or boat.
