Welcome to Michigan's Sunrise Side!

Sanilac County, located in the Thumb of Michigan on the shore of Lake Huron, is less than a two-hour drive from several of Michigan's main metropolitan areas: Detroit, Saginaw, Bay City, Midland, Flint and Lansing; and less than an hour drive from Ontario by way of the Blue Water Bridge in Port Huron.
Take advantage of over 40 miles of breathtaking Lake Huron storyline, offering ample opportunity for a variety of water sports, from swimming and skiing to boating and fishing.
