This was a great experience for our family. We had a spur of the moment trip to mackinaw as we had a week off all together. This was an amazing show and come to find out, the guy who puts it on has competed on national television. Our kids loved in and were even included in the show. It’s so family friendly it was amazing.
My teen daughter and I had a great time.Jun 2021
I thought it would be fun to catch the Lumberjack Show with my teen daughter. I knew it would keep her interested because of the cool things they do. She had a great time. They do a whole skit before the show and divide up the crowd into two sides so you can root for your Lumberjack. We were even instructed to boo the other person, which was fun. If you have ever seen a Lumberjack Competition on television, then you have seen what they do. They did it all too, including log rolling, the spike pole climb, different saw and chainsaw things, among other stuff. The show skews both young and old, so it’s fine for any age. They do have an intermission and a snack/gift shop on site. You even get to meet the Lumberjacks after the show if you’d like. It was probably one of the bargains of our trip as far as entertainment value.
It was a great, informative, and funny show. We had an amazing time! One of the highlights of our trip to Mackinaw City!
Fun ExperienceSep 2021
We went there on Saturday night, Sept. 4th. It was raining and we weren’t sure if they have any cover so we went early and found that the about half of the seating was under cover. So, if the weather is iffy, go early to avoid getting wet.
We had 3 grandkids ages 7 and 10. All of us loved the show. Very entertaining and I will certainly recommend for my friends who are going to that area. I think that all ages would love the show.
Lots of fun for very reasonable priceAug 2021
This was our favorite thing we did the entire trip. Very reasonably priced. Half the audience cheers for one lumberjack the other half cheers for the other one. They compete in log rolling, tree climbing, axe throwing etc. It was different from most tourist attractions. We would go again. We brought home a bear carved by a chainsaw as a souvenir.

So much funJul 2021 – Family

Truly fun for everyone!Jul 2021
So fun to see a live, tourist-pleasing, family-oriented show return to the Mackinaw scene. Goofy humor and hijinks combined with genuine talent entertained us old-timers, as well as thrilled the school-age kids in attendance. A great value built out of a simple storyline presentation of lumberjack history and skills. Kudos to the two young men who truly impressed everyone with their brawn and enthusiasm. Best part was watching the kids scramble for autographs on wood scraps after the show.
Fun for Everyone!Jul 2021 – Family
What an absolute delightful show! My kids and the entire rest of my family loved it! 60 minutes of pure family entertainment.
Great time, even in the rain!Jul 2021 – Family
The show was entertaining and family friendly. The competitors are talented and you learn a little about lumberjack culture and history. It was raining pretty hard the whole show and they just chopped on ( we the audience was under an awning). Great show.
Lumberjack ShowJul 2021 – Family
Awesome show! Great mix of silly comedy and real lumberjack facts and skills. Very entertaining. Low key, involves the audience, especially kids. But we were with 16 & 18 year olds and they loved it too
Must see northern Michigan attractionJul 2021
A can’t miss Mackinaw City experience! The show is always entertaining and a blast to watch. Well worth the price of admission. We go every time we are in the area, start your own tradition today, you won’t be disappointed!

The show was great. Very entertaining for the whole family. I recommend going early if you want to secure a seat in the shade.
Great fun!Jun 2021
So much fun! Very informative about the lumberjacks and Michigan’s logging history. Our four and three year old grand nieces were laughing, clapping and encouraging our lumberjack! They wanted to go back the next night!!! Loved this.
TimbeerrrrrrrrJun 2021 – Couples
This was our first time at the Lumberjack show, and we loved it! We happened to be there on the night Robert Irvine was filming a cooking show, so it was an added bonus! Even without Robert there, we would go to this show again! Such fun!
Great family fun!May 2021
Love the show and attend any time we’re in the area. Fun for all ages and it never gets old. Something a little different every time.
Highlight of our tripMay 2021 – Family
The jack pine lumberjack show was the highlight of our mackinaw trip! We had a great time watching the competitors compete against each other in each event. We were really impressed with the lumberjacks skills and showmanship. It’s fun for any age!
Lumberjacks!!!Sep 2020 – Family
We loved this show, we saw it 7 years ago and we still enjoyed it. We ended up as a fluke with the exact same lumberjacks that we had 7 years ago. It is entertaining and my teens even enjoyed watching it. It is a must see. I love that all ages can enjoy the show.
So much funSep 2020
Been here 3 times now and I highly recommend this attraction. This is such a fun show for the entire family.
The host is just the best and the lumberjacks are so entertaining to watch. Lots of audience interaction. I will be back again for sure!

Great time for kids and adults!!!Aug 2020 – Family
Amazing time for kids and adults!! My mother in law lives in Cheboygan and has always wondered about this show. We went last night with my 4 year old daughter and it was a blast!! The lumberjacks really engaged the kids and were funny!! They adhered to the covid standards without affecting the show. My daughter even got an Autograph from the lumberjacks!!
Log rolling was our favorite!
