Welcome to the Escanaba Area!

What an amazing destination! Delta County, home to Escanaba, Bark River, Gladstone, Rapid River, Nahma and Garden, is a Lake Michigan coastal paradise. Its 211 miles of varied shoreline is the most of any county in the continental U.S. Beautiful beaches, trails and stunning limestone cliffs along Big and Little Bays de Noc offer spectacular sightseeing by foot, bike or kayak.

While you’re here, reel in trophy-sized fish from sparkling streams, inland lakes and the great waters. Explore over 30 sunken ships in their offshore resting grounds. Find your groove in our live music performances. Walk through history in our ghost town and museums. Sample locally crafted wines and beers. Find your favorites things in our local shops and eateries. And return often for more memories.
