Hale is a small town located in Iosco County in Michigan's north country about midway between the shores of Lake Huron and the Rifle River Recreational Area. Many lakes, rivers and streams are located nearby, making the town of Hale a fast growing tourist destination. The village began as a lumbering camp in the late 1800s, and with the arrival of the Detroit, Bay City & Alpena Railroad, it began to grow into the peaceful little hamlet it is today. To the east of Hale is the Tawas Region, which includes Tawas Bay, Tawas Lake, Tawas Point State Park and the cities of East Tawas and Tawas City. In addition to numerous recreational activities like swimming, boating, fishing, hiking and golf, the city of East Tawas offers a charming downtown area with unique shops and eateries. The Rifle River Recreation Area is a wilderness area located a few miles west of Hale in the Ogemaw State Forest. Camping, hiking, swimming and boating are available in the recreation area, along with a playground and picnic areas. Other attractions near the town of Hale include the Tawas Point Lighthouse, the Tawas Bay Refuge Harbor, Great Lakes Marine Art Gallery and the Lumberman's Monument.

Hale Weather & Climate

The Northeastern portion of Michigan's Lower Peninsula has a climate that is directly affected by the prevailing westerly winds which are modified according to the temperature and moisture content in the air as they pass over Lake Michigan. During the winter, cloud cover produced by this "lake effect" prevents the loss of heat; therefore the temperatures for this part of Michigan is somewhat warmer than would otherwise occur at this latitude. Likewise, winds moving over the waters of the Lakes in summer keeps it cooler. Average temperatures are generally warmer along the shoreline of Lake Huron for two reasons; the vast inland forests provide insulation during the summer and the Lake serves as a heat source in the winter along the shore. Rain is heaviest in northeastern Michigan during the growing season of April through September. Snowfall has wide variations from winter to winter.
