Sugar Island, Michigan

Sugar maples dominate the forest of this 15-mile-long island in the St. Mary's River. It was a favorite Indian sugaring spot for many hundreds of years. Many Ojibwa lived here in recent times. The Sault Ste. Marie Tribe of Chippewa Indians bases its tribal membership on being able to trace ancestry to that Sugar Island band. Cottages and small fishing resorts dominate the island today.  Sugar Island and the St. Mary's River are considered important migration flyways for many migrating birds.
