This is a wonderful woodland area where you can enjoy hiking, biking, hunting, canoeing, fishing, ATVing, as well as birding and photography.

Winter Fun

Winter lovers will find the Guest House right on the snowmobile trail for easy access to the main trail between Marquette and Munising. The hundreds of miles of groomed trails in Alger County are a delight for sledders of all ages.

Go ice fishing, cross-country skiing on nearby trails, or plod through the woods on some snowshoes. There is downhill skiing and snowboarding at Marquette Mountain on the south side of Marquette.

Photographers will have wonderful photo opportunities with frozen waterfalls, snowy countryside, and icy Lake Superior.
