Michigan's Land of Water
The name "Les Cheneaux" (pronounced "Lay-Shen-O") is French in origin, and loosely translated to mean "the channels." Our series of 36 islands along 12 miles of Lake Huron shoreline afford many channels throughout the area. The sheltered bays, channels and quiet coves make for ideal sailing and boating as small crafts are protected from the Great Lake's winds
Les Cheneaux welcomes you to celebrate the legacy of Aldo Leopold— one of America’s most influential naturalists— by visiting a place he spent summers in his youth. Les Cheneaux is now home to a historical marker honoring Leopold’s time in Les Cheneaux. See the woods and water that surely formed Leopold’s early impressions of the natural world.Read More
