Real history.

Learn, Explore, & Relax in the Keweenaw

The Copper Country has a rich history, scenic beauty, and year-round recreational opportunities—skiing, snowmobiling, and snowshoeing in the winter, ATVing and waterfall viewing in the spring, kayaking, biking, and hiking in the spring, summer, and fall, and taking in the beauty of the fall colors as the leaves change each fall. Wherever you drive along the Copper Country Trail, you are just minutes from the Lake Superior shoreline, a hiking/biking/ski trail, or an attraction steeped in historical or cultural tradition.

Find your adventure

Natural attractions appear around every corner. One of the great joys of the area is pulling over on the shoulder and wandering around a small waterfall, like Jacob’s Falls, or enjoying a Lake Superior vista from Fort Wilkins Historic State Park or McLain State Park.
