Location Information

Michigan MapOur Riverview Retreat is approximately 2.5 hours from the Big Mac Bridge and 2 hours from Menominee. Your scenic travel will take you through National Forests, State Forests, scenic roadside rest stops and miles upon miles of breath-taking shoreline of both Lake Michigan and beautiful Lake Superior.

Whether you arrive in the U.P., via the Mackinac Bridge from lower Michigan or from Wisconsin or Canada, make sure to allow yourself enough travel time (have your camera ready) to visit and explore a few of its many beautiful attractions along the way.


There are numerous road-side parks and rest areas, most of which are natural scenic treasures, fully equipped with restrooms, valuable information, and telephones  

Our diverse peninsula stretches for 384 miles from west to east, from Ironwood to the tip of Drummond Island, and 233 miles from Copper Harbor in the north to Menominee in the south.
