Welcome to the Les Cheneaux Area
Our villages of Cedarville and Hessel are in the remarkable Great Waters region of the Upper Peninsula-- an authentic place, where our communities share your passion for adventure and independence, along with a love of small town life.
We are on the shores of Lake Huron and close to lakes Michigan and Superior. We live and work in a place that inspires wonder each day, where our marinas, services, restaurants, shops and products serve an authentic taste of rustic living on the lakefront....or deep in the forest.
Satisfy your thirst for outdoor recreation within our endless acres of public forest, trails, campgrounds, rustic resorts, beaches and miles of open water and protected channels.
We are blessed with excellent fishing opportunities in our many channels, where yellow perch, smallmouth bass, whitefish, salmon and other species thrive. Other fishing adventures await you on the nearby St. Mary's River, Straits of Mackinac, Drummond Island, Munuscong Bay or in the many inland lakes and streams within minutes from Les Cheneaux.
The Les Cheneaux Islands area is easy to reach. After crossing the Mackinac Bridge into the Upper Peninsula, head north on I-75 to Exit 359, then east on M-134. We are just 13 miles east of the intersection of I-75 and M-134.
