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.
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.
The shoreside hamlet of Eagle River is like a Keweenaw "sample platter," collecting all the peninsula's best elements in just under 6 square miles.
A 3-mile underwater preserve that runs along the volcanic shoreline, Agate Harbor is a hot spot for geological wonders.
High Rock Bay
The Keweenaw's reputation as the "end of the world" probably came from a visit to High Rock Bay.
This rocky point serves as the western arm of the harbor that gives Copper Harbor its name.
Fair warning: a "quick" pull-over stop could turn into spending all day at this magical coastal green space.
Whet your appetite for adventure with a visit to Hebard Park, just up the road from Fresh Coast Cabins.
Bête Grise refers to a beach, a bay, and a nature preserve, all located just below the tip of the Keweenaw Peninsula.
