Drummond Island, Michigan

Photo-Drummond Island ShorelineDrummond Island is located in Chippewa County.  Named by the British who held the island through old Fort Drummond until 1828.  Ferry service is available to the island from De Tour Village.  Drummond Island, wedged between Lake Huron and Lake Superior just 11/2 kilometres across the St. Mary's River from DeTour Village, is a great place to get back to nature and enjoy hunting, fishing and bird-watching,  Photographers and nature enthusiasts will discover a rare mosaic of plants, birds and butterflies on the Maxton Plains, a protected geological area and the alvar grasslands region. The Heritage Trail in Drummond Island Township Park is ideal for watching eagles, osprey, owls, hawks and 200 varieties of songbirds.  Woodland Indians occupied Drummond Island before it became a British outpost in 1814. Named after British commander Sir Gordon Drummond.  Today, golfers tee off at The Rock, an 18-hole course, or at the nine-hole Drummond Island Golf Course. Trophy fishermen compete in the Tag Perch Contest in May and the Annual Salmon Derby in August. With year-round ferry and air service, Drummond Island attracts winter tourists who snowmobile on 160 kilometres of groomed trails and across the International Ice Bridge to Canada.
