The Great Outdoors

Welcome to Delta County-the crossroads of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. Physically separated from the Lower Peninsula by the Straits of Mackinac, the UP comprises nearly 29% of Michigan’s area but only 3.3% of its population. Delta County, one of fifteen counties in the UP, is located 450 miles from Detroit and a mere 60 miles from the Wisconsin border. These facts contribute to a unique atmosphere enjoyed by residents and visitors alike.

South Central Upper Michigan is frequently referred to as the “Banana Belt,” because of the temperate climate, which is much milder than the rest of the Upper Peninsula. The image of the cold, frozen north is dispelled by the statistics-50″ of snowfall per year in Delta County compared to the 200+ inches along the shores of Lake Superior.

According to Indian tradition and legend, native Americans traveled hundreds of miles to the well-known hunting grounds of Delta County to hunt the red deer where their trails crossed. This was called “Eshkonabang” or “Land of the Red Buck.” From this or from another word meaning “flat rock” came the name Escanaba. The name “Bay de Noc” is derived from the Nocquet or Noke Indians, one of the Algonquin tribes whose territory extended from northern Green Bay and the Bays de Noc northward to the south shore of Lake Superior. Gladstone, Escanaba’s sister city, seven miles up the coast of Little Bay de Noc, was named for British Prime Minister William Gladstone.
