Leland Harbor is sponsored by the Michigan State Waterways Commission. The Carp River empties into the harbor as seen in the above photograph. Maintaining much of it's old time fishing town features, Leland (also known as "Fishtown") is one of the premier stops along the lake Michigan shoreline.

Two fishing companies still operate out of the harbor with fish being sold daily to the public. There are many specialty store to browse through along with a grocery store for all your daily needs. There are also many fine restaurants within walking distance of the harbor. A community library and the Leelanau Historical Museum are also worth a visit.

If you like to fish, many charter fishing services operate out of the harbor.

The Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore is located nearby with North and South Manitou Islands being part of it.

Leland was primarily a fishing, lumbering and ship town. It has since changed into summer vacation spot for many people throughout the Great Lakes region.
