THE CISCO CHAIN OF LAKES is comprised of 15 navigable lakes with 270 miles of shoreline. Thousand Island Lake is the largest of these scenic lakes and has numerous islands and bays. A day boating on the chain is a memorable one… be sure to include the smaller uninhabited lakes, too.
WALLEYES, MUSKIES (the state record musky was caught in 1980 on our lake!) large and smallmouth bass, northerns, perch, crappies, and other panfish are plentiful. Many trophy fish are taken each year. Thousand Island also contains lake trout, splake, and cisco. Explore any of the 302 lakes and 241 miles of trout streams located in Watersmeet alone.
WILDLIFE abounds here. There are many nesting pairs of bald eagles and loons on our chain. Deer, coyote, raccoon, red fox, bobcat, skunk, otter, beaver, muskrat, bear, porcupine, fisher, etc. are abundant in our area. Even timberwolves reside in Sylvania (we've had radio-collared wolves in our yard a few times!).
We are located in the OTTAWA NATIONAL FOREST and just one mile from Sylvania Wilderness and Recreation Area. Sylvania is a national forest with 21,000 acres of virgin forests and 36 unspoiled lakes. This area is closed to motor boats on most lakes (and snowmobiles in the winter), but it is available to the public for canoeing, picnicking, hiking, fishing, swimming, hunting (in season), and winter sports. There is a beautiful sand beach on Clark Lake which we highly recommend for swimming.
FLAMING FORESTS of colored trees brighten our area from the end of August till sometime in October. This is a wonderful time to visit the chain. The fish are biting better with the cooler waters, and fewer people are boating with school back in session. You'll long remember the peacefulness and beauty of the chain in the fall. Late October and early November can provide some of the best fishing of the year! Terrific fall and spring discounts and super discounts.
BOWHUNTING AND SMALL GAME HUNTING are popular in the fall. Many deer, partridge, ducks, geese, and even bear are taken each year. Our gun deer season runs from November 15 to 30 each year.
ATV, UTV, SNOWMOBILE AND BIKE from your door. Our county road is an access trail to the main snowmobile and ATV/UTV trails. You can legally ride on the right side of the road to the main trails. When the ice is safe, you can also access the snowmobile trail by sledding across the frozen lakes. You can connect up with the trail hub here that allows you to head east, west, north, and south here in Watersmeet for some of the best sledding you'll ever have. The new bike trail includes all of Thousand Island Lake Road from the Watersmeet side to the Land O' Lakes side and connects with the many, many miles of trail. Our main snowmobile trail becomes our great ATV/UTV trails when it's not sledding season. Wide trails let you bring up your four-wheelers or six-wheelers. The Forest Service also has three large maps of the trails here that they have as well. Come and enjoy the great scenery and clean air and have some wonderful riding! Our son, Bryan, with his nice musky!
The Spring Creek Channel here on the Chain...beautiful in every season.
WINTERS here bring lots of snow for the enjoyment of snowmobilers, skiers, and ice fishermen. Our homes are located on an access trail joining with main trails heading in every direction. Our fantastic snowmobile trails are groomed daily from December 1 to April 1 normally. Cross-country skiing is close by in Sylvania. Six downhill ski hills are within a 45 to 90 minute drive. Both snowmobile rentals and service and ski outfitters are located locally. Ice fishing for walleye, pike, and musky on the Michigan side of the chain is open through February 28. Panfish and trout can be taken till the ice goes out around Mid-April. Enjoy your favorite winter sports or just come and relax in our winter wonderland! Mid-week discounts.
ICE FISHING is a fun and exhilarating pasttime in the winter here. Jig for panfish or set up your tip-ups for the game fish. The eagles will entertain you and the scenery will renew you! There's no better meal than a fresh catch of fried fish after a fun day on the lakes! One of my most memorable days was spent catching bluegills with family here and coming home with very rosy cheeks to a slowcooker full of homemade chili. We fried up our catch to a golden brown and cut up a fresh pineapple! What a strange combination, but it was one of the best meals ever!!!
The first snow of the season.
Whether your vacation plans include a stay in the spring, summer, autumn, or winter, the fantastic Cisco Chain and the breathtaking Western Upper Peninsula of Michigan have it all! We know that you'll go home with wonderful memories to last you a lifetime!
