The Devil?s Kitchen is a cave located in the southwestern shore of Michigan?s Mackinac Island. It was carved by the waters of Lake Huron during the Nipissing post glacial period. It features two hollows in a rocky cliff, with one placed right on top of the other.

The Mackinac Island is known for having a good amount of interesting rock formations. The Mackinac Island State Park even highlights these features by having trails leading to such areas. The Devil?s Kitchen is one example of these, especially since this one resembles a human face with its mouth open widely.

Tons of stories and lore are about the Devil?s Kitchen, most of which tell of it being infested with bad spirits. Some say that these evil spirits were cannibals. The name is from the belief that the black coloring of the cave is due to the spirit?s cooking activities on the site.

The Devil?s Kitchen is located along M-185, which is the island?s main road.
