‪Get out here on your own boat if you can. Beautiful and quiet. Great views of the mainland and the dunes out here are double the size.‬

‪We took the 90-minute boat ride to South Manitou prepared with enough food for lunch, which was a good thing. There is NOTHING on this island other than 2 bathrooms. Of course, there’s plenty of good, clean Lake Michigan water but it isn’t easy to get. There are huge boulders on much of the beach to protect the coast from erosion and climbing them would have been difficult. Bring water. Once you land, you can take a wagon ride ($10/person plus tip). We did this and it was well worth the price, although the sights were rather nondescript. If you’re walking to see all the sights rather than riding in the wagon, you’ll be hard pressed to get it all done. You would walk for miles (mosquitoes were horrific that day) through the dark woods. You just can’t see the whole island in the short amount of time you have there. Many people came prepared to camp out but that’s not for me. I wanted to return to the mainland, Leland, that day. The boat left the island at 3:45 and if you’re riding it, you better be there because it’s your only means of getting off. This was my great fear - that I'd take a hike, get lost on the island and would need to camp out with NO provisions or tent. It’s very easy to lose your way on this primitive island. The trails are not marked well. The boat leaves the island only
once/day so don't miss it!‬

‪Vistied the Lighthouse to gain information to make a model of it. Parks Service Volunteer Docent Mark was very knowledgeable and helpful. It's a short walk from the boat dock to the lighthouse through the woods. Very quiet and enjoyable. Only 70 some stairs to get to the top and there are landings about every 20 steps or so. ‬

‪My most favorite rustic camping area! I visited this lighthouse both times I've camped here, and it is absolutely gorgeous. A must-climb!‬

‪We have toured the lighthouse multiple times and have always enjoyed it. We have not taken the ferry, but have our own boat, so I can't speak to that part of it. You walk up the spiral stair to the top of the lighthouse, stopping at various levels for the tour guide to talk about some of the history of the lighthouse and its keepers. It isn't that hard for the average person to climb up, but there are a lot of stairs, and some close quarters. At the top they show you the way the light magnifies with its lens, plus you get to see the great views from up top on the circular cat walk. It's hard to beat the views and the history lessons about the Lake and lighthouse.‬

‪After many visits to the Traverse City area, finally this summer I convinced my wife to take the boat ferry from the dock in Leland to South Manitou Island for a day trip. You are dropped off at the dock around 10:30 AM and picked up around 3:30 PM. It was a sunny summer day in August and delightful. The ferry ride to the island is 90 minutes each way and was in itself enjoyable. Note, that Lake Michigan was behaving that day, so it can get choppy -- be prepared. The island is inhabited seasonally only by the National Parks workers, and those who choose to camp there with backpack gear. We found the place interesting and took the history tour to the world's largest cedar trees, stopping at the ship wreck as well. There are no food vendors on the entire island, so you must pack your own lunch and snacks. Food is available in Leland near the dock before your depart. And yes, the lighthouse was very interesting as well. Worth the view from the top! Next time, we may camp.‬

‪If you are there enjoying the wineries and views, keep going until you get to the lighthouse. It's worth the view and our Lake Michigan history experience. I've been to the peninsula many times (so beautiful), but never all the way up to the lighthouse. Everyone there was having fun and enjoying it. As a fundraiser for the upkeep, they want to charge you $4.00 pp to get up the stairs to the top. A small donation, but for a family, not worth per person. Go to Pt. Betsie in Frankfort, too (no charge for going up to the lighthouse keeper quarters).‬

‪well worth the trip. Just a boat ride away, about an hour and a half on a decent day. The crew is great and the sites are very well marked and clean. Collect the ferry at Fishtown, get tickets in advance, and the rest is easy. We paid the extra ten dollars for the ride around the island. You can walk to see the ship wreck and cedar forrest, but you will need to hustle. The trip with the tractor is great and you can have some time to chat and relax, and see all the sites. If you have kids under 14, go for the motorised trip version. Bring lunch and snacks and you will be all set.‬

‪The tour if the S. Manitou tower takes about 15 mins. and all you do is walk to the top of the lighthouse with a little history about the lighthouse. Most of the lighthouse complex is closed, no tour of the house, living quarters, life of the lighthouse attendant was missing. They need lessons from Rock Island WI. It is interesting but there is lots more they could have done. The tour is not offered as advertised. It was closed Sunday Sept 13 and only open for 1 hr, 1:30 - 2:30 on Saturday. People drive for 6+ hours then take a $37.00 ferry ride to find out the tour is closed or have to reschedule their visit around the 1 hr window the lighthouse is open. The NPS needs to do more. The island is beautiful and full of history but the NPS does little.‬

‪South Manitou Island is park of Sleeping Bear National park and is accessible by ferry. If you plan on going to South Manitou plan on being there all day or camp overnight for longer. The ferry ride alone is approximately 1 hour 15 minutes to 2 hours 25 miles. The time difference is due to the ferry bringing people to North Manitou Island also; so look at the schedule. No dogs are allowed on the island.

We had a group of approximately 15 people and go a group campsite. The campsites are very rustic with no running water and an outhouse that is not for the faint at heart. There is a toilet with running water at the dock if this is needed. The group sites are a nice size with a fire ring and plenty of poison ivy near the site. You cannot bring fire wood onto the island but you can scavenge wood from dead branches and fallen trees. As far as poison ivy, brush up on it and make sure you are familiar with what it looks like.

The island has so much to do. We had 3 nights and we wanted to do it all. Day 1 we arrived at camp, set up camp and enjoyed the lake. Day 2 we hiked to see the one room school house, had lunch at the homestead farm and ate tart apples from an old orchard, visited the cemetery and had lunch at the light house. Day 3 we hiked through the old growth cedar, hiked to the top of the pearched dunes (where we had lunch) and spent the remainder of the afternoon bathing in the sun, on the beach in front of the Francisco Morazan shipwreck. Day 4 we had to head back home.

The island has plenty to see and if you enjoy the great outdoors, rustic camping, hiking and idea of leaving civilization for a few days sounds good, this island would be a perfect get-a-way.

Other notes: There is only electricity at a few building near the dock. If you must have a cell phone, you can charge it here during certain hours. There are no showers and bathrooms with flushing toilets are only available near the dock. No pets are allowed on the island. If you want to bring your kayak, you can have it ferried over with you for a charge. The island is 10 around with 1 inland lake. There is no food or store available on the island so you need to bring supplies with you. If you don't have a few days, you can always plan an enjoyable day trip.‬
