Where We're Located
Located in the amazing Huron National Forest, LogHaven is two miles from its nearest neighbor. Hardwood and pine forests abound, with an occasional open meadow where deer, birds and other wildlife may be viewed. The AuSable River is about ten miles north. Sports enthusiasts love its versatility – its fast-flowing, clear water is famous for canoeing/rafting and fishing. Known for the conservation efforts on behalf of the endangered bird species, Kirtland's Warbler, the Dept. of Natural Resources has created nesting areas throughout the entire area. Warbler tours for sightings are offered several times each year. Off road vehicle and snowmobile trails are within a half mile and connecting trails allow riders to travel hundreds of miles.
