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.

Greetings from the beautiful Northwoods ~ Snowmobile Trail Report for March 25, 2014:
We ended up with well over a foot of new snow in the past five days. Grooming is continuing for now as long as the weather cooperates, and trails have been in great late season shape. Just in the past day, blacktop is showing in parking lots and on side roads again. This will be my last report since I'll be gone for a couple weeks. Since temps are to be from -16 tomorrow night and up into the 30s or higher soon, please call Caryl at the Chamber number, 906-358-9961, for up-to-the-minute reports. She'll give you live and honest reports. There have been lots of sledders having a great time with the addition of all this newer snow!
Our website here has plenty of area information on all the great accomodations and businesses that are here waiting to help you with your get-away now or in any of the great seasons.
