Nahma Township

Nahma is a historic lumbering/saw mill community that was established as early as 1856.  In the Heydays of the Big Bay de Noquet Company (lumber) the company employed over 1200 workers.  After the timber resource was exhausted the entire town of Nahma was put up for sale in 1951.  This was featured in Life Magazine.  Nahma is located in Nahma Township.  Approximately 68 percent (75,000 acres) of Nahma Township’s land area is federally owned (Hiawatha National Forest). Water resources abound as numerous streams, inland lakes and approximately 14 miles of Big Bay de Noc shoreline exist within the Township.  These natural features, and the recreational opportunities that go along with them, attract both tourists and seasonal residents. Nahma’s northern township border is just 19 miles from Lake Superior.

Nahma Township is a sportsman's  fantasy.  The abundance of water, open public land and wildlife create a condition for fisherman, hunters, trappers, boaters, kayakers, off road riders, hikers and all outdoorsman where many sporting opportunities can be undertaken all in the same area.  Nahma Township being in the Hiawatha Nation Forest and abutting the over 107,000 acres of Big Bay de Noc is a prime recreation location for those that live in the area and those that plan to visit the Upper Peninsula.  Gordon Lightfoot’s song captures Big Bay de Noc out from Nahma: “Old (Lake) Michigan steams like a young man’s dream; the Islands and Bays are for Sportsmen”

Nahma Township developed a Township wide recreation plan in 2010.  This plan has been approved by the State of Michigan and is the guidance document for recreation programs in Nahma Township.   If you would like a copy of this plan, please contact

What about Nahma Township?

Nahma Township is located within the Hiawatha National Forest.  Much of the area now owned by the US Forest Service was at one time owned by the Bay de Nocquet (lumber) Company.   The 75,000 acres of National Forest is an excellent place to hunt, hike, bike, snowmobile, take a dog sled ride, or just observe the beautiful Upper Peninsula at its best.

There is 14 miles of Big Bay de Noc Lake frontage in Nahma Township.  There are 3o named inland lakes totaling 2177 acres; 35 unnamed lakes covering over 114 surface acres and 157 miles of streams in the township.   The fishing and boating opportunities abound in the area.

Why all the maroon and white in the Website?

Maroon and white were the High School colors for all those persons that graduated from Nahma High School.   The symbol of the school and athletic teams at that time were the Arrows!

The Nahma Arrows is still a fond memory to the alumnus that attended the Nahma High School.  Visit the Nahma Township Historical Society to purchase a Nahma Arrow shirt or relive the fond memories at the Nahma Arrow Lounge located at the Nahma Inn.
