Keweenaw Parks

Keweenaw Parks: National, State, and Local

The Keweenaw is home to an abundant network of National, State, and local parks.  No two parks are alike with some focusing on preserving the Copper Country’s history and natural wonders while others are purely recreational.  

National Parks

Keweenaw National Historical Park

Established in 1992 to preserve and interpret the story of the rise, domination and decline of the region’s copper mining industry. Keweenaw Heritage Sites were established to help make a unique contribution to the copper mining story. Embodying stories of hardship, ingenuity, struggle and success, each site allows you to explore the role mining played in people’s lives here and afar. Heritage sites operate independently of the National Park Service. Sites stretch along the length of the Keweenaw Peninsula, from Copper Harbor to south of Ontonagon.  The KNHP also offers the Junior Ranger Program for kids 8 years and older.  You can pick up the book at the visitor center or the KCVB office and once completed you can return it to the KNHP visitor center where a ranger will review the book and award a a badge and sticker. Visit our website at http://www.nps.gov/kewe/index.htm or call the Park Headquarters for more information. (906) 483-3176.

Isle Royale National Park

The Keweenaw is the gateway to Isle Royale National Park, located in the northwestern portion of Lake Superior, is a remote island archipelago, consisting of one large island surrounded by over 450 smaller islands. It is primarily a North Woods Wilderness and water based park. Visitors come to hike, backpack, boat, canoe, kayak, scuba dive, and fish. The island offers 165 miles of trails, 36 campgrounds, 51 miles of canoe routes, 10 major shipwrecks, and over 336 miles of scenic Lake Superior shoreline. The primary means of access to the park are via ferry from Houghton or Copper Harbor, or sea plane. For information, visit our website at https://www.nps.gov/isro/index.htm or call 906-482-0984.
