Welcome to Watersmeet Michigan.....
Watersmeet Michigan welcomes you to year-round vacation enjoyment. From Watersmeet, the Ontonagon River flows north into Lake Superior. The Wisconsin River flows south into the Mississippi River, and the Paint River flows east into Lake Michigan. This is "where the waters meet"!
This "Water Wonderland" includes 302 lakes and 241 miles of trout streams. Excellent resort and motel accommodations provide both anglers and families the opportunity for summer fun.
Enjoy our spring-fed lakes, meandering streams and rivers, and even our secluded waterfalls. You can experience the forest areas with the abundance of animals and birds. Bring cameras to record the beauty of the area along with the experience of seeing the many birds, fantastic loons, and eagles soaring as well as all the wildlife animals in their natural setting.
The famous "Cisco Chain" with its 15 lakes and over 271 miles of shoreline and "Lac Vieux Desert" with its 4,200 acres of boundary water and headwaters of the Wisconsin River, are home to many fish species including panfish, crappie, walleye, bass, northern pike and muskie. In fact, our area waters boast both state and world records for tiger musky!
Nature has smiled on this area of Michigan's Upper Peninsula with its beautiful forests of spruce, balsam, maple, birch, and aspen. Your stay here will be highlighted by sightings of white tail deer, American bald eagles, loons, black, bear, coyotes, and even illusive timber wolves and moose.
While visiting, explore the 21,000 acres of virgin forest in the Sylvania Wilderness Area which is within 1 million-plus acres of the Ottawa National Forest. State and Federal lands provide excellent small game, waterfowl, and trophy deer hunting, making our area a top choice for bow and gun hunters.
As a "Winter Wonderland", Watersmeet is gateway to the northfs Big Snow Country. We have professionally groomed cross country and snowmobile trails, along with fine winter lodging and dining. No matter what your tastes, whether they be outdoor sports and wildlife, family vacations, or solitude.
Just as the waters flow in every direction from Watersmeet, so do our snowmobile and ATV trails. Enjoy our fantastic groomed trails linking with hundreds of miles of trails throughout the Upper Peninsula and Wisconsin. We also have excellent groomed cross-country and downhill skiing trails with rentals and shops nearby.
Rich in natural, man-made, and historical attractions as well as a variety of great accommodations, Watersmeet is your gateway to a wonderful and relaxing vacation. We look forward to your visit with us. You will want to return time after time.

If you are on the Cisco Chain, there are orange barrels for you to follow. We recommend staying on that trail for everyone's safety.
If you have any questions, please email me at email@example.com or call Caryl DeBroder at our Chamber number at 906-358-9961. We always try to give you the best information on trail conditions that we can and will be honest about our trails here. Our season got off to an early start, and we're so happy to have such great snow to provide you with a memorable sledding get away. We invite you to check out the rest of our website here for more information, too.
Thanks for checking out our report. We hope to see you real soon. We have all kinds of great accommodations here from resorts, private homes, and motels, and to a historic hotel and a large casino resort complex. We always invite you to "stay where you play"! We've had lots of calls recently about whether or not the resorts in the area will rent daily rather than weekly here in the winter. Most of the resorts and private homes are very happy to rent out for less than a week at this time of the year, so just give them a call. Our area has something for everyone! Plus we have businesses that can rent you sleds or do repairs for you, great places to eat and enjoy for a pitstop, grocery stores, gas stations, gift shops, and just about anything else you'll need to make your stay the best ever.
If you need a trail map, just request one from us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We'll be happy to get one out to you along with our area brochures.
Correction on Snowmobile Trail Reports for MSAsnow and WUPCVB's Michi Web report: They reported that Cisco Lake Resort on Cisco Lake on the Cisco Chain closed. That is true. They also reported that there is nowhere else on the Cisco Chain to get gas. That is NOT true!!! Vacationland Resort, The Arrows, and Wilderness Bay on Thousand Island Lake on the Chain all have gas available. I have calls out to Bent's Camp to see if they'll have gas available this year but haven't heard back from them yet. Please rest assured that when you come to the Cisco Chain that you will be able to gas up your sleds here! We are all here to make your snowmobile trip the best ever!!!! Come on up!
