Beaver Island is located in northern Lake Michigan. Beaver Island is the most remote, inhabited island in the Great Lakes, with a year-round population of about 500 and a pace of life that is relaxed and welcoming. A rich and colorful history includes Native Americans who inhabited the island as early as 700 A.D. and Irish Americans who fished the fertile waters of Lake Michigan.  In the mid-1800's, a band of Mormons followed James Strang to Beaver Island, where Strang set himself up as king, establishing the only kingdom in the United States.  The concept of a Mormon kingdom didn't set too well with the natives. Strang was ultimately assassinated by the original settlers. Today, the island offers visitors an array of taverns, restaurants and quirky, interesting museums. Outdoor activities including biking, backpacking, golfing, hunting and fishing, or relaxing on pristine beaches.  The island can be reached by boat or plane. Access to the island is available by ferry and aircraft from Charlevoix.  Island Airways flies daily, and the Beaver Island Boat Company makes trips to the island April through December.
