Getting to Michigan’s Isle Royale: Ferries or Sea Plane?
Take the Isle Royale ferries or seaplanes from Michigan’s Upper Peninsula to get to one of the least visited, but most re-visited, U.S. national parks.
Standing 5 stories high on the ridge that forms the Keweenaw's base, the Quincy Mine is the first to let you know you've arrived in Copper Country.
McClain State Park
F.J. Mclain State Park boasts over 400 acres of wooded trails, sandy bluffs, clean beaches, and (relatively) calm waters, as well as cabins, campgrounds, picnic shelters, scenic overlooks, playgrounds, and even an ice cream stand.
Another one of those Keweenaw gems hiding just around the corner, Hungarian Falls is a true local treasure.
You might know Isle Royale as the only national park in Michigan. You might not know that it's also the least-visited and the most revisited national park in the entire system.
Swedetown Recreation Area
Sport junkies, rejoice! This public recreation area is the Keweenaw's premier playground for all things mud-splattering, teeth-rattling, and heart-pounding.
Gratiot River Park
In the mood for an outdoor adventure with a little less effort involved? Take a low-key trip to Gratiot River Park.
Black Creek Sanctuary
Rich in wildlife and local flora, Black Creek Nature Sanctuary is hard to find but worth the trouble.
In the historic ghost town of Delaware lie the ruins of the Keweenaw's oldest copper mine.
Keweenaw Point Trail
The Keweenaw is famous for its world-class hiking and mountain biking. Buckle up your big-kid pants and test your mettle on the Keweenaw Point Trail.
Great Sand Bay
Lake Superior's waters earn frequent comparisons to the Caribbean, and Great Sand Bay completes the picture, with a mile-long sweep of sugar-white sand bordering a dizzying expanse of aquamarine water.
Eagle Harbor Beach
Get out that selfie stick and prepare for the envy of your downstate friends, as you relax on the Keweenaw's most photographed beach.
