South Manitou Island, Leelanau County
Lodging | Camping | Hiking Trails
South Manitou Island is a great place to hike and explore. Take a look at the island map (link below), and plan your hike in before you come.
If you are visiting South Manitou Island for just a day, your time will be limited, so be sure you know when the ferry leaves and plan your hiking with enough cushion to be sure you don’t miss the boat!
Be sure to stop by the visitor center which is housed in what used to be the island’s general store. You will find a collection of historic photos and artifacts that will help you get a feeling of what life was like on the island in the past. As you look at the displays, try to imagine yourself living on the island with the people you see in the photos.
