Lake Superior Beaches
Beachcombing, campfires, scenic vistas and lakeside strolls
The Porcupine Mountains area has more than 21 miles of beaches along Lake Superior. The largest of the Great Lakes, Lake Superior is as beautiful as it is expansive. For many visitors to the Porcupine Mountains, it is the awe-inspiring waterscapes and unspoiled shores of Lake Superior that bring them back, season after season, year after year.
Beach combing is a favorite activity for visitors to the Porcupine Mountains. Walking the beaches along Lake Superior, you’ll find driftwood, agates, rocks of every shape and size, and surprising treasures.
For an unforgettable vacation experience, try a campfire on the beach. Stargazing over Lake Superior is incredible. You might have a chance to see the Northern Lights—winter and summer provide some of the best opportunities to view this natural phenomenon.
You can access the public beaches at the following locations:
- Sand flats between Ontonagon and Silver City
- Green Park between Ontonagon and Silver City
