The Keweenaw Peninsula is renowned for its outdoor adventures.
Year-round, we enjoy hiking, camping, picnicking, fishing, swimming, canoeing, snowshoeing, skating, ice hockey, and skiing.
The area features a rich immigrant and mining history and offers many outdoor recreational opportunities and cultural events. Lake Superior, the world’s largest freshwater lake, is never farther than a short drive. The lake has a large influence on the weather in the Keweenaw, especially in the winter! Known as “lake effect,” this influence means cooler summers and warmer winters than the Central U.P., and of course, a lot more snow.
