Grand Island Ferry

Grand Island Ferry

Grand Island became a National Recreation Area in 1990 when the Forest Service purchased the Island from the Cleveland Cliffs Iron Co. The Forest Service has been improving camping sites and creating Mountain Bike trails throughout the island. The East Channel light, however, is only accessible by boat. Open Memorial Day to Labor Day. Visitors can get to the island via passenger ferry. The ferry departs from Grand Island Landing on the mainland, located on M-28, about 3 to 4 miles west of Munising's blinking light. Look for the Grand Island National Recreation Area signs.
