Epoufette is a residential community concentrated along Lake Michigan on the Epoufette Bay Road. This historic little village is most noted for the Cut River Bridge, but its history dates back hundreds of years, from Native American seasonal settlements, to French fishermen and logging, which reached its height in the late 1880s.

Close by is the Cut River Bridge State Roadside Park with primary access to hiking trails that wind through the beautiful forested Cut River Valley to its mouth on Lake Michigan. For those seeking quiet recreation, Spring, especially in the month of May, is a good time to view migrating warblers and other songbirds that follow the Lake MIchigan shore and along the gorge.
