This was a very entertaining show. They had fun and showed a lot of ways to challenge another lumberman in contests. I would recommend this to all families and groups traveling to Mackinaw City, Mich. This is one you can go back to several times.

Our coach tour with Country Travelers Discovery took us to this show (surcharge of $22 per person). It was educational and entertaining. The announcer and the two lumber jacks had good dialogue back and forth among the three of them. Each contest was explained. There is a shelter, but only the top few rows would be under cover if it... More

The best thing we did on our trip. You can get fudge anywhere, but you can't see such an incredible, authentic lumberjack show like Jack Pine's Lumberjack show. You've got to see it to believe it These guys are great. A real piece of Americana.

It might be a bit staged, but it is hilarious anyway! Prizes are given out to the younger audience, and you can buy their carvings at intermission for dirt cheap.

If you're near Mackinaw City, the Jack Pine Lumberjack Show should be on your list. Its competitive format, with lumberjack vs. lumberjack is really fun, but it's the amazing skill of these guys that makes the show so worthwhile. The hour flies by as they race through their demonstrations. We will definitely return. Also, it's easy to get to, and... More

This was a spur of the moment night which turned out to be our favorite night in the city! The Lumberjack show is hilarious, enjoyable, interactive, and just overall fun to watch! Dan, one of the Lumberjacks, was so funny and kept the audience engaged with jokes and fun the entire night! The seats were full with people of all... More

This was absolutely fantastic. There were seven of us ages 80 to 15 months and everyone (with the exception of the 15 month old) absolutely loved this! They keep the audience very involved and having a great time. We had Dan (Bull of the Woods) and Kyle and they were fantastic. I felt for them as it wasn't warm out... More

You may have seen it on tv, but in person a lot of fun. It was very entertaining, along with the corny jokes, we learned a bit about Michigan history. I would recommend it for all ages. The lumberjacks were great and interacted with the crowd.

Easy to find, easy to park, clean. Very enjoyable and actually learned some great Michigan history. Covered bleacher seating. The kids really enjoyed it as well as the adults. Left with a smile.
