Welcome to Bay Mills Township

Bay Mills Township is located on the northern side of Chippewa County along the Lake Superior shoreline. It runs east to west, about 24 miles in length and 2-5 miles in width. The extreme east end (about a 3-square mile area) is separated from the main township land by the waters of Whaiskey Bay. All of the area of the township lies within the area described as T47N and R2W-R5W.

The entire northern and eastern sides of the township are Lake Superior shorline. The western side borders with Whitefish Township and the southern side shares with Chippewa and Superior Townships of Chippewa County. The remote location and Lake Superior’s beautiful coastline (apporximately 30 miles) make the natural environments extremely appealing. West Lakeshore Drive, Birch Point Road, Ranger Road, Salt Point Road, and 6 Mile Road are the major hard surface roads in the township. West Lakeshore Drive runs ease/west along the entire waterfront, whereas Ranger Road runs north to south 6 miles to Raco. Salt Point Road also runs north to south about 10 miles to Strongs.

Bay Mills Township is a beautiful area with plenty of outdoor recreation for every season. Enjoy water sports, fishing, camping, hiking and riding the trails. Be sure to visit the Iroquois Point Lighthouse.  There are many historical sites to visit in the surrounding area.
