About Caseville Harbor
Caseville Harbor is located at the mouth of the Pigeon River on the east shore of Saginaw Bay. The harbor is about 17 miles southwest of Port Austin, Michigan. The harbor is ideal for shallow draft recreational watercraft. The harbor is protected with approximately 1,800 feet of pier and over 4,000 feet of maintained channel. The harbor and channel depth ranges between 8 and 10 feet. Caseville serves as an important Harbor of Refuge, supports charter fishing and recreational watercraft. The entire harbor has a combined 500 recreational boat slips. The Caseville has established a significant interest to serving boaters and visitors to the area.
It’s one of the few break walls anywhere that encourages visitors to walk out and take a look at Saginaw Bay up close. You can fish, walk and catch a cool breeze on this 1/4-mile sprig of concrete and stone out into Saginaw Bay. Watch the boats come in and out in the early morning and late afternoon. However, if its stormy be prepared to get wet.
In 2018 Caseville updated the break wall area with a new seawall, kayak launching dock and fishing boardwalk.

About Harbor Beach Harbor
The area around Sand Beach in 1872 was pretty remote, even for the pioneering standards of the time. It had no merchants and no manufacturing except a few shingle makers. In 1873 the area became the site of one of the most ambitious harbor projects on the Great Lakes. This project was known as the “Harbor of Refuge at Sand Beach”. When it was completed, the town sprung up with a railroad station, and post office along with the largest man made harbor on the Great Lakes.
