Indian River is a small settlement on the banks of Burt Lake in Northern Michigan. Though the area here is small, it is the perfect base for exploring some of the best of Michigan's countryside.
One of the best things to do around Indian River is to enjoy time spent out on Burt Lake. This large body of water borders Burt Lake State Park and offers plenty of family-friendly activities such as boating, fishing camping, and swimming. There are a handful of wineries and vineyards scattered around this area which are also well worth a visit. One of the most notable is Seasons of the North Winery.
The best time to visit Indian River is during the summer months when the temperatures are warm.
The town of Indian River may be small but its fantastic location on the edge of Burt Lake State Park allows visitors to be within walking distance to natural wonders from their vacation rental. The National Shrine of Cross in the Woods is a popular attraction that draws people from around the world.
There are a handful of wineries spread across the Indian River area, visit to soak in the picturesque countryside and sample the local grapes. When winter rolls around, try your hand at cross country skiing or check out the recreational activities available on Mullett Lake and the rest of the inland waterway.
