Rapid River

Peninsula Point Lighthouse

Rapid River is a quiet community at the junction of US 2 and US 41. Its proximity to the northern end of Little Bay de Noc and the mouth of the Whitefish River makes it a prime fishing launch area. On County Road 515 Rapid River Rustic manufactures cedar log homes. Their beautiful model home can be seen and toured on US 2.

Rapid River is an unincorporated community in Masonville Township, situated on the northern end of the Little Bay de Noc  between the mouths of the Tacoosh and Rapid rivers with the mouth of the Whitefish River just to the east.

U.S. Highway 2 passes through Rapid River and joins with U.S. Highway 41 just west of town; the two then run concurrently from Rapid River south to Escanaba.

The community was first named Rapid Siding as a stop on the Minneapolis, St. Paul and Sault Ste. Marie Railroad. The name was recorded as Rapid River when the community was platted in 1887. The community never incorporated as a village.

One scene from the 2001 film Escanaba in da Moonlight was shot in the Swallow Inn, a popular bar on Main Street.
