The temps in the summer can be in the 90’s but more often the temps are in the high 70’s and low 80’s for day time temps. The evenings can get cool, so don’t forget to pack long pants and a sweat shirt…or we will be happy to sell you one of our Root Cellar ones.  You will want to bring along a nice pair of hiking shoes for all the hiking you will be doing.


The Porcupine Mountain Wilderness State Park  (called “the Porkies” by all the locals) is some of nature’s most untamed forest with all sorts of wildlife. This jewel is 60,000 acres of some of nature’s most untamed forest with all sorts of wildlife. Gentle hikes, rugged treks along pristine rivers, wonderful waterfalls and even Interpretive Programs are offered during your visit any time of the year. Lake of the Clouds is a must see. A pair of binoculars would come in handy here. The parks number is 906-885-5275 for more info.  Stop in our restaurant and we have maps to help you find this wonderful park-just ask!


For the adventure seekers:

Copper Peak.

This is the only ski flying hill in the western hemisphere. Ride the 36 story chair lift and then travel another 18 stories to the top of the jump! You have an awesome 360 degree view that is over 1000 feet above Lake Superior with views of 2500 square miles on a clear day that takes your breath away.  This is a wonderful site in the fall too, because of the colors….don’t forget to bring that camera!


The Adventure Mine is another favorite. Go back in time and go underground or take a bike ride through the ruins from the 1800’s. If you dare, you can also rappel 80 feet into a lower level part of the mine. If rappelling isn’t your thing, don’t worry, there is still a lot to see on this adventure.
