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!
