Fort Wilkins Historic State Park offers East and West campgrounds with numerous campsites for tents, trailers, RVs and mini cabins. Located between Lake Superior and tiny Lake Fanny Hooe, it's a destination for outdoorsmen.

Campground reservations are accepted online up to 6 months in advance. Camp Sites/Fees: (159) $25 (20/30 amp); $29 (50 amp) or $20/$24 off-season.

Pick as far east as you can go, to reduce affect of Brockway Mtn about 1.75 miles away. If you pick a slot with 20/30-amp outlets then you won't need to run a generator.

Takes an hour from US-41 on very rough unpaved road. Est 7.5 miles. TripAdvisor review. No water, no toilet. Dangerous roads. Don’t attempt after a heavy rain. Public, state forest, free. Street view shows a tent camper.

This is an empty promonitory along the water at the end of a long road toward the eastern tip. Expect less traffic and fewer day-trip visitors. Open exposure to south and east. Heading to Seattle is 257 degrees and goes through Brockway Mtn.

State Forest land camping permits are required and can be applied for online. Pathfinder, Keweenaw Traveler.

Brockway Mtn Drive is a terrific E-W ridge along the highest point of the EN67 grid. However, it is also part of the James H. Klipfel Memorial Nature Sanctuary and the John J. Helstrom Nature Sanctuary. Utmost care is required to maintain the sensitive bird migration area.

No services. 200 cars/day. Written permit required from Eagle Harbor Township.
