St. Joseph Island, or “The Island” (as it is locally known), is the third largest island in the Great Lakes system next to Isle Royale and Manitoulin.
Sitting on the border of two countries and two lakes, the Island is among the most diverse areas in the Algoma District.
The most western of the Manitoulin chain of islands, St. Joseph Island is situated in the channel between Lakes Huron and Superior.
This 140,000 acre island is located 45 km (28 mi) east of Sault Ste. Marie via Highways 17 and 548 and 273 km (170 mi) west of Sudbury.
Property owners will fall in love with the two communities located on the Island:
The population on the island is less than 2,000 people, spanning two beautiful small towns, Hilton Beach and Richards Landing.
Both communities offer amenities like great restaurants, campgrounds, motels, full-service marinas and charming shops. The Island is linked to the mainland by a non-toll bridge which opened in 1972.
Both have accessible marinas for travelers, boaters, and fishermen.
The surrounding water bodies are a fantastic place for fishing: walleye, northern pike, salmon, perch, and bass are just some of the species that can be found, as well as many more.
Spring sees the Island come to life with the flow of maple syrup that has made St. Joseph Island famous.
When Summer comes around, the island becomes a hotspot for camping, swimming, and even golfing!
As the warm weather starts to fade, the lush green landscape fades into the most beautiful colours of Autumn.
The trees change into the most spectacular shades of reds, oranges and yellows, this is an absolute sight to behold; a drive around the island is a must and comes highly recommended.
The Winter season becomes a playground for snowmobiling, snowshoeing, and skiing.
