Port Austin, Michigan

P.C. Austin, part owner in a sawmill here in 1839, built a boat dock for himself. When he enlarged it for the use of others, he put a street light on a pole for a lighthouse and it became known as Austin's Dock, later as Austin Port, and finally as Port Austin.

Port Austin is at the very tip of Michigan's Thumb. Here the sun rises and sets on the water and the shoreline has uniquely formed rocks which add to the picturesque views.

The village of Port Austin boasts many resorts and motels for the vacationers. There are several parks in the area offering a variety of recreational activities. The Pinnebog river runs through Port Crescent State Park and is perfect for canoeing and local charter boat captains offer a variety of fishing excursions.
