Unique place to visit in the far north near copper harbor Did you know this is the northern end of an old army rd that runs all the way to florida great restoration on old buildings and great guides there during summer State park with campground also See the northern lights there when sky is clear
We had read a little about the fort, but had no idea there would be so many buildings and so many informational set ups. The history was very interesting. The fort portion of the park was well maintained. Nice scenery on Lk Fanny Hooe. Would recommend visiting if you are in the Copper Harbor area.
