Lake Huron is a beauty of the Great Lakes

Lake Huron is the kingpin at the center of the Great Lakes. Feeding into Lake Erie on the one side and drawing from Lake Superior and Lake Michigan on the other, it doesn't really have any considerable cities around its banks. The result is a water that's pure blue and clear, known for its freshness and natural beauty. You can discover that yourself along the untrodden sands of Ipperwash Beach, between the pine-scented bays of turquoise in the Bruce Peninsula, or from the comfort of your own Lake Huron vacation rentals in the heart of the Huron National Forest.

Endless enjoyments on Lake Huron

Lake Huron's vastness is one reason for its endless array of pursuits. From the tree-lined coast of Saginaw Bay on the American Side to the creek-carved wilds of the French River on the Canadian side, it's a real playground for outdoorsy types. You can fish and boat, hike the clifftop ridges, beachcomb along the sands, and delve into thick fir forests. Midwestern safaris in the national parks promise glimpses of hummingbirds, bobcats, and wolves. Island hopping means cycling around empty shores, or spelunking in empty caverns. Get ready for a real adventure.

There's loads to see on Lake Huron

Starting on the Canadian side, the Fathom Five National Marine Park and the Bruce Peninsula National Park are a showcase of Huron history and natural beauty. Resplendent bays of shimmering blue water, high cliffs, and the relics of old shipwrecks all await there. Over the border, Mackinac Island has Revolutionary War forts and Mackinac National Park with its arched stone features. There's also Manitoulin Island, the largest of its kind in the world, where the Bridal Veil Falls cascade over the backcountry. There's rustic Bois Blanc Island. There's Lambton Shores, complete with wide beaches and local taverns.

Keeping things warm on Lake Huron

Winters are infamously harsh in Lake Huron – any soldier who manned Mackinac Fort back in 1812 could tell you that. These days, it means that most Lake Huron vacation rentals come into season when the warmer months swing around. They typically start with April, run through the uber-popular times of June, July, and August, and finish with the fall in September. Traveling then means finding the lakeshores, beaches, woodlands, and bays all without ice sheets and snow.

Lake Huron crosses borders

Lake Huron is so vast it straddles across the US-Canada border, covering a mega 23,000 square miles in the process. Its 1,850 miles of mainland shoreline is peppered with more state parks and national reserves than you can shake a maple leaf at. Some of the best include the rugged Bruce Peninsula, where the glowing bays reveal the uber-clean waters of Huron, and the Huron-Manistee National Forest in the US, which has porcupines and oak savannahs between secluded bays. Lake Huron vacation rentals are perfect for anyone who wants to explore a real North American wilderness.
