Living in the Les Cheneaux Islands

The Les Cheneaux Islands area is located in Michigan’s Eastern Upper Peninsula, approximately 30 miles northeast of the Mackinac Bridge. The name “Les Cheneaux” is French in origin meaning “the channels.”

Our series of 36 islands along 12 miles of Lake Huron shoreline afford many channels throughout the area. The sheltered bays, channels and quiet coves make for ideal sailing and boating as small crafts are protected from the Great Lake’s winds.The Les Cheneaux Area is an authentic place, where the community shares a passion for adventure, independence, a love of small town life, and of course, boats.

As a student, you will live and learn in a place that inspires wonder each day.

Satisfy any thirst for outdoor recreation with endless acres of public forest, trails, campgrounds, rustic resorts, beaches, and miles of open water and protected channels.
