Description
Although small in size, the Princess Point Nature Area packs a powerful punch in enhancing recreational opportunities in the Sturgeon River Sloughs region. The property lies on the eastern side of the Keweenaw Waterway at Princess Point and has an open area perfect for a water trail campsite, which is available in few areas near the Sturgeon River Sloughs. The public may visit this area, however, it is currently rustic with limited access from the water only. Enter these coordinates into your GPS to find the landing platform by water: 47.019139,-88.467140. The closest water-based access is the DNR boat launch south of Chassell.  Take US-41 south from Chassell and look for the boat launch on your left, approximately 0.8 miles after you cross the Sturgeon River. Total paddling distance from the boat launch is about 1.6 miles one-way. At this time the old boat house/landing area at Princess Point Nature Area  is under water so access to the land from the water will require getting your feet wet and bushwacking through the shoreline. There is no high ground between the parking area and Princess Point, so plan your trip accordingly and bring plenty of water, snacks, and emergency supplies. Note that the boat launch is not plowed in winter.
The entire community can now take advantage of this place as a launching point or rest area for their paddle adventures. As part of the Keweenaw Land Trust's focus to providing access to the Lake and bolstering the Keweenaw Water Trail, this property fills an important gap in this water-based trail network.
