Mackinac County is a destination for tourists interested in culture, history, and exploring the outdoors. It is home to Mackinac Island, Bois Blanc Island, and the 36 island archipelago known as the Les Cheneaux Islands. Lake Superior State Forest and Hiawatha National Forest acreage combine to make up 53 percent of the County’s land area. It also includes 3,781 acres of protected sand dunes and 298 miles of Great Lakes shoreline – specifically Lake Michigan and Lake Huron. These extensive natural assets make Mackinac County an outdoor lover’s dream.
