The Mysterious Charity Island in Michigan’s Saginaw Bay
Big Charity Island is one of the larger islands on the US side of Lake Huron. At 250 acres it imposes a dominating outline at the mouth of Saginaw Bay. It has an 11-acre pond that is spring fed and surrounded by reeds. It’s a favorite spot for nesting Bald Eagles and other birds and as a result, the US Fish and Wildlife Service has denoted both islands as off-limits to camping and hunting due to its role in the region as a rookery.
