This park features camping, a restored 1844 army military outpost and one of the first lighthouses on Lake Superior built in 1866.

Built in 1844, Fort Wilkins was built to keep law and order during the Copper Rush. The fort tells the story of life on the northern frontier during the mid-1800s. The park also includes the Copper Harbor lighthouses built in 1866 and 1868. Fort Wilkins Historic State Park is a historical park operated by the Michigan Department of Natural Resources at Copper Harbor, Michigan. The park also preserves the restored 1844 army fort which was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1970 and is located in the northern Keweenaw Peninsula on Michigan's UP. Camping is available in the park (some sites offer 50 amp service), along with day use facilities and a 4 mile trail.
