Family walking along North Beach on Grand Island Recreation Area

2014 Superior Wildlands Visitor Newspaper

Welcome

When you first enter the Hiawatha National Forest, look around. At first glance, you'll see a forest with abundant wildlife, miles of rivers and streams, and dozens of waterfalls. You'll see a forest that touches the scenic shorelines and beaches of three Great Lakes, and is home to six historic lighthouses. You'll see historical structures, archaeological sites, and prehistoric Native American artifacts that are a window to our past, which are being preserved for our future.
