Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park
Head toward the shores of Lake Superior in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, and you’ll find the Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park, a 60,000-acre swath of wild waterfalls, majestic woods and boundless recreation.
The Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park is the largest state park in Michigan and is a popular destination for hiking, biking, fishing, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, and more. Don’t forget your camera, either: The park is home to abundant wildlife and photo-worthy destinations like Lake of the Clouds and numerous waterfalls.
Seasonal roads are closed from December 1 through late spring each year.
For more information about trails, programs and camping, visit the Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park online.
The Friends of the Porkies is a nonprofit organization dedicated to enhancing the park for all users. The group holds numerous educational classes at their Folk School, hosts an artist-in-residence annually and organizes events like the Porcupine Mountains Music Festival.
