Camping in the Keweenaw: McLain State Park

McLain State Park

Located outside of Hancock on Lake Superior, McLain State Park provides a beautiful, scenic campground.

Activities at the park include fishing, hunting, cross-country skiing, and hiking. We spent the first part of our stay here checking out the beach and lighthouse.

Options available for camping include a Rustic Cabin for $60 per night or the modern campground for $26 or $16 per night. The campground is also pet-friendly.

One of our favorite parts of this campground was the view of Lake Superior. There were some nice high spots that overlook the lake and provide amazing views of the setting sun. It was the most peaceful evening of our trip.
