Description
Lac La Belle, one of Keweenaw Counties larger lakes, is a 1,146 acre lake with a maximum depth of 39 feet and access to Lake Superior through the Mendota Canal.  Fish include walleye, small & large mouth bass, perch, crappie, northern pike, and muskie.

Public access site and boat launch at the state dock.  Gas for boaters is available at the Lac La Belle Lodge docks.  Lodging, dining, groceries and gas.

Haven Falls, named after Doc. Haven, is located here.  Doc Haven was the head of the local government division of the Michigan Highway department.

Lac La Belle was located close to the one time active Delaware Copper Mill and was part of the mining process that crushed the rock that was then taken to the smelters for refining.  A smelter was built here but never melted one pound of red metal.

This was also the site of the railroad that was built in 1907 and lasted until 1918.  It serviced mainly the mines of the Copper Country.
