Michigan’s pocket-sized version of Minnesota’s famed Boundary Waters is a wonderful mecca for wilderness campers, canoeists, and anglers. Michigan’s Sylvania Wilderness is a place where the mournful cries of loons and wolves still echo across crystal-clear lakes and green seas of ancient pine, hemlock, and hardwoods. A wild and unspoiled region, Sylvania is home to a grand array of wildlife, from the bald eagles that carve patterns in its skies to the black bears that lumber through its old-growth forests. This untamed character, combined with a management plan that places a premium on solitude and natural beauty, makes the Sylvania Wilderness a true paradise for wilderness canoeists.
