One of the few remaining wilderness areas in the Midwest

Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park is one of the few remaining true wilderness areas in the Midwest. Hike through towering old-growth forests, see rivers, roaring waterfalls and gorgeous panoramic views. With roughly 60,000 acres, Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park is Michigan’s largest state park. The park offers more than 90 miles of trails, the Lake Superior shoreline and beautiful vistas.

This park has many natural attractions, including the Lake of the Clouds viewing area, the Summit Peak observation tower and the Presque Isle River. The Summit Peak is a short 1/2 mile trail and the Summit Peak Loop brings you to Mirror Lake and a total of 5 miles. The Visitors Center offers interpretive programs, an exhibit hall, information on trail conditions, wifi, and a gift shop. There are 63 site-specific backcountry camping sites in the park. The Porcupine Mountain Ski Area is operated independently of the State Park.
