A lovely stretch of wild coastline just a few minutes’ drive from the Mackinac Bridge. The Horseshoe Bay Wilderness Area features 7 miles of pristine sand beach and wild, rocky coastline at the northern end of Lake Huron.
Once a prime Native American hunting and fishing grounds, it is home to a wide variety of wildlife, including black bear, deer, coyote, beaver, otter, mink, eagles, and osprey. Although the wilderness lies just a few miles north of the Mackinac Bridge and the tourist town of St. Ignace, it remains relatively unknown and undisturbed—a perfect place to explore by kayak.
