Keweenaw National Historical Park

Hidden away in the northern end of Michigan's remote Upper Peninsula, the Keweenaw National Historical Park explores the history of copper mining in the region. As you explore the park museums and the associated Heritage Sites, you'll discover how Native American people and immigrants have been using the area's rich copper resource for more than 7,000 years. Tour historic mines, explore museums, and enjoy the pristine natural beauty of the Keweenaw Peninsula. If you're planning to camp, the best time to visit is late spring through late fall when the weather is mild. In the winter, nearby Lake Superior creates heavy lake-effect snows, turning the Keweenaw into a paradise for skiing, snowboarding, and snowmobiling.
