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 Michiganís 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 northís 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.
Greetings from the beautiful Northwoods ~ Snowmobile Trail Report for December 4, 2013:
We have already had about 3' of snowfall, but with rainstorms thrown in here and there, we now have about a foot of snow on the ground. We received about 5 to 6" yesterday and about that much so far today. Right now there's a little bit of rain or freezing rain thrown in, but with upcoming temps predicted at -10 to -12 degrees, this may be a blessing to get our base solid. This is the stuff that gets us closer to grooming! We are expecting much more snow between today and tomorrow, so we are off to a great start this year. We'll keep you posted as things change here. We saw our first couple on a sled at the gas station a couple days ago right after the end of deer season....have to believe they were the first ones to make tracks in the snow this year here.
It's beautiful out there! Now is a great time to start planning for your winter getaways. The Watersmeet area has all kinds of great accomodations from cabins and cottages to private vacation homes as well as a casino resort hotel and other hotel and motel offerings. We have two snowmobile sales and service businesses as well as a marina that can service your sleds for you. There are restaurants, cafes, bars and grocery stores to accommodate all your needs and some nice stores to find some up north goodies to bring home to those who weren't fortunate enough to come on vacation with you!
For up to date live reports or for more information, just call Caryl at the Watersmeet Chamber of Commerce number, 906-358-9961. We will be honest in our trail reporting! Or you can e-mail me (Carole) at firstname.lastname@example.org for brochures or a trail map or any questions.
Our trails will soon be in great shape. We invite you to come and stay where you play. All of our area businesses are ready to make your get away a wonderful one. You'll want to come back time and time again. See you soon... Thank you for visiting. I'll update as changes take place here.
