Located just past Lac La Belle, Bete Grise is now a small resort area that has much more to offer than one may think.
Bete Grise (French for Grey Beast) offers white sandy beaches that are perfect for a day of relaxing with the family. The bay area is an ideal place to put your kayak in and explore the Keweenaw Shoreline or wind through the channel like many boats once did when both Bete Grise and Lac La Belle were once important mine towns.
Ore boats often take safe harbor here when Lake Superior is to rough for them to continue.
The original name was Baie De Gres which means Bay of Sandstone it was later changed to the name it has now, which means Grey Beast.
Just north of here, in Lac La Belle, you will find restaurants, vacation rentals, hiking and biking trails and the only downhill ski resort of it’s kind east of the Rockies.
Lake Superior Magazine’s readers have voted Bete Gris Reserve 2018 Best of the Lake. The pictures do not do it justice so come on up and see for yourself this beautiful scenery.
