This show is fun for people of all ages. Hosted by an MC, the show pits two lumberjacks against one another in friendly competition in a variety of skills. It also showcases each in individual skills. Show lasts an hour and a half. 5 minutes outside of Mackinaw City on 23.

The show was fantastic for all ages. It was both entertaining and informative. The feats these athletes perform are truly amazing. Best attraction in Mackinaw area, and at a great price. You will not be disappointed.

We are from NJ and have never seen a lumberjack show - we loved this! The MC educated the audience about the history behind the events the lumberjacks were doing, and the lumberjacks were professionals who have won titles are very experienced. The venue is outside, of course, and the seating is close to the lumberjacks - my family, including... More

We went and had an enjoyable time seeing the different skills of the lumberman. The best were the pole climb and the log roll. They did a great job of getting the audience involved.

We are in our 70's and loved the show. It was so interesting. The MC provide us with information about why loggers do the events in the show during a regular working season...how and why competitions began against logging companies. Kids from the audience were included in some of the activities. It was GREAT. Don't miss this. Fun for all... More

13 year old boy, 4 year old boy and 1 adult were all entertained. Lumberjack skills were so impressive and even a little humor thrown in. Staff was all extremely friendly. Lumberjacks stayed for meet and greet. My boys were stoked!

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
