There is a nice area by the river for sitting and relaxing or swimming in the water. A 17’ canoe with life jackets and paddles is included in the rental so you can enjoy a leisurely paddle down the AuTrain River. Shuttle service is available so you can take your time paddling to the next bridge or all the way to Lake Superior. The AuTrain River meanders through the Hiawatha National Forest where you can enjoy watching the wildlife or having a picnic lunch. A delightful way to spend a day or an afternoon. There is also a fishing boat with a motor available for rent in case you would like to fish or go for a boat ride on AuTrain Lake.

Recreation abounds in Alger County and the area around AuTrain. Hike on the trails in the Pictured Rocks, on Grand Island, or the Songbird Trail at the boat landing on AuTrain Lake and learn the birds by their songs; explore a variety of waterfalls; or take a cruise on Lake Superior.  The beautiful Lake Superior Sand beach is only 1 mile from the cottage or there is a nice swimming beach at the campground on AuTrain Lake.  There is easy access to the ATV trails for some fun riding in the Hiawatha National Forest.

Munising is only a short distance from the cottage for shopping and dining and there is a casino in Christmas on Highway M-28.

Fall brings gorgeous color to the area and is a photographers delight; so don’t forget your camera. Hunters will find hundreds of public lands in the Hiawatha Forest for hunting large and small game.

Winter activities are sure to please outdoor lovers as Alger County gets major winter snow.  Snowmobile on the hundreds of miles of groomed trails or go cross country skiing at Valley Spur, the Christmas trails, or trails in the Pictured Rocks Lakeshore. The adventurous might try ice climbing designated cliffs in the Pictured Rocks Lakeshore.
