McLain State Park
McLain State Park offers two miles of sand beach on Lake Superior. The park has an overall size of 443 acres. Visitors can also enjoy different activities in the park such as fishing, windsurfing, kayaking, searching the beach, and sight-seeing. The sunsets at McLain State Park are very beautiful and there is even a lighthouse to view. There are also four miles of hiking/cross country ski trails to access. A Michigan Recreation Passport is required to access the park.
The park is located between Calumet and Hancock and makes a fine base for visitors to visit attractions such as abandoned shafthouses, tram cars, and ghost towns. Visitors of the Keweenaw are invited to explore the newly created “Keweenaw National Historic Park,” which has preserved historical items from the copper mining days.
