Welcome to DeTour Village located in the beautiful  Eastern U.P. of Michigan

Get away from the traffic and downstate hassles, take a trip up I-75, cross the Mackinac bridge to the U.P.  to visit our beautiful Lake Huron waterfront community.

Our location is on the eastern end of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, about 1 hour north/east from of the Mackinac Bridge.  We are a small community of friendly people, great local businesses, a fantastic school system, an onshore FREIGHTER (the Lewis G. Harriman) extreme cottage home, and the new 15' high chainsaw carved statue "The Passage Keeper".  

Come on U.P. and relax. 

DeTour is surrounded on three sides by water,  Lake Huron, the St. Mary's River and DeTour Passage.   As you might have guessed our primary business is tourism in both the summer and winter.  Our summer highlight is the 88 slip DNR Marina with full services, along with three local boat ramps with ample parking (including a launch ramp on Caribou Lake).   We have miles of beaches, where you rarely see another sunbather.   There are several waterfront picnic areas and the "northern-most" Botanical Garden in Michigan all with views of passing Freighters.  In the winter we have over 50 miles of groomed local snowmobile trails, a large parking/staging area and easy access to thousands of miles of E.U.P. and Canadian trails, via Drummond Island.  So, checkout our website but more importantly come on U.P. for a visit, just hang a right 15 miles north of the Mackinac Bridge, on M-134 and follow the signs to DeTour Village.
