Drummond Island is the largest U.S. island in the Great Lakes. The British built a fort here in 1815, having lost Fort Mackinac  and fur-trading post to the Americans at the end of the War of 1812.  Fishing, boating, and hunting form the basis of the resort economy. The island’s coves and interesting, ragged rocky shoreline make for really interesting kayaking and canoeing.  Drummond Island is ideal those who like to explore interesting habitats by kayak, canoe, mountain bike, or hiking.  Ferry service is available to the island from DeTour Village.

DeTour Reef Light, PO Box 307, Drummond Island, MI 49726, Phone:  (906) 493-6609.  The DeTour Reef Light Preservation Society (DRLPS) volunteers have worked since 1998 to restore and preserve the DeTour Reef Light located one mile offshore in northern Lake Huron at the far eastern end of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula between DeTour Village and Drummond Island. Built in 1931, the 83-foot tall lighthouse is a strategic and historic landmark that marks a dangerous reef to help guide ship traffic from and to Lake Huron and Lake Superior via the strategic St. Mary’s River. The DRLPS completed major restoration of the structure in 2004, and public tours to this unique lighthouse began in July, 2005. The DRLPS received the 2005 Governor's Award for excellence in historic preservation, and the Superior Award in 2006 from the Historical Society of Michigan. The DeTour Reef Light is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Fossil Formations [Natural Attractions], Drummond Island.  Dolomite rock formation containing 350-million- year- old coral and shellfish fossils.  Fossils, are commonly found in the exposed limestone of the eastern U.P. and Straits-Charlevoix area, are especially abundant on the beach at this point on Drummond's north shore.

Maxton Plains [Natural Attractions], Drummond Island.  The limestone bedrock is right at the surface, almost like pavement in its flat expanse. Plants grow in the cracks, creating four to eight inches of spongy soil on top that supports the rare alvar grasslands and alpine plants. To survive here, these plants must be alkaline and able to withstand sudden alternations from dry to soaking conditions. These boring-looking grasses can burst into bloom within a day, turning into a sight of great if subtle beauty. Alvar grasslands exist in only a few places in the world including nearby Manitoulin Island, Pelee Island, and Latvia. Much of the plains is Nature Conservancy property. Mountain bikers are prohibited from biking on the fragile, thin soils.
