Lake Huron's Saginaw Bay in Michigan

Wonder why we're called the Great Lakes Bay? Our region touches one of Michigan's five Great Lakes of North America - not to mention, the one with the longest freshwater coastline!

And since we're in that sweet spot on Michigan's eastern freshwater coastline where the thumb meets the rest of the hand - along Lake Huron's Saginaw Bay - endless freshwater adventures are beckoning you to dive right in.

After all, the Saginaw Bay spans 1,143 square miles, with 240 miles of Michigan shoreline to match, stretching from Michigan's Thumb to the eastern Lower Peninsula.

So, whether you're sailing the Saginaw Bay, world-class walleye fishing, soaking up sandy Michigan beaches and splash parks at places like Bay City State Park, booking a Saginaw Bay fishing charter, or setting out from one of the Saginaw Bay boat launches below, you'll soon see why the Great Lakes Bay is one of the best waterfront vacation spots in Michigan.
