The Great Outdoors
The Upper Peninsula is Michigan’s “Out West” with endless acres of nature to explore. In fact, the U.P. is 29% of Michigan’s overall land area but only 3.3% of its total population. That means more land preserved just the way you would have found it 100 years ago!
Welcome to your outdoor paradise.
Delta County is located within what most locals call the “Banana Belt” because of its temperate climate, which is much milder than the rest of the Upper Peninsula. If you’re still looking for a winter wonderland come in the colder months, Escanaba still receives a humble 50 inches of snowfall in comparison to 200+ inches along the shores of Lake Superior.
A wide range of fun!
From hunting on the grounds that sustained Native Indians for centuries to water skiing on silky Lake Michigan or visiting nearby ice caves, you can find it all in Delta County.
