New Buffalo is one of the eight SW Michigan communities that make up Harbor Country, located on the shores of Lake Michigan at the mouth of the Galien River. The harbor was officially recognized in 1836 as a safe harbor for ships traveling the Great Lakes. Known as the Southwest Gateway to Michigan for boating it offers all the amenities and accommodations for avid boaters cruising the shores of Lake Michigan. The Galien River and wetlands offer sport fisherman and wildlife enthusiast’s unlimited opportunities to see rare flora and fauna as well as spring salmon runs and local fly fishing. The spectacular views of Lake Michigan and the harbor from the downtown district is the center of Harbor Country activity; even for the wild gulls, geese, herons and ducks who line up daily at the banks to be fed by willing visitors.
