Welcome to the Bays De Noc Area of Escanaba, Gladstone, Rapid River and Garden, Michigan!
Little Bay de Noc with it's thirty some thousand acres of water and Big Bay de Noc with it's ninty some thousand acres of water is a fishermans dream come true. Although the bays are probably best known for their trophy size Walleyes in the fall, both bays provide excellent Bass, Pike and Perch fishing throughout the year. http://www.walleyeschoice.com Spring, summer, fall or winter are all fun and productive. Whether you are planning on fishing or your just planning to come here to visit we have a lot to see and do.
The Bays De Noc climate is much milder than the rest of Michigan's Upper Peninsula, which invites outdoor activities year round. Fishing, swimming, camping, hiking, tennis, volleyball or golf are popular recreational activities during summer.
Autumn brings hunting season and spectacular color. All along the roadways, the woods burst into a glorious display of red, gold, yellow and orange.
In winter, visitors and residents alike enjoy cross country skiing, ice skating, hockey, snowmobiling and ice fishing. In springtime, soon after the snow melts and creek and river waters begin to warm, the annual smelt dipping season begins. Springtime runoff brings excitement to canoeing and kayaking.
No matter what season, we invite you to come and enjoy
all the adventures that the Bays de Noc area has to offer!
