Great Lakeshores

The Hiawatha offers visitors access to undeveloped shores of three of America’s great inland seas - Lakes Superior, Michigan, and Huron. The lakeshores’ are home for many sensitive plants and animals; our interpretive programs help visitors understand the need to “tread lightly” while enjoying their beaches.

People driving the Great Lakes Circle Tour can explore the Whitefish Bay National Forest Scenic Byway along Superior’s south shore; while campers find accommodation – from developed to primitive – on all three Great Lakes shorelines. The North Country National Scenic Trail brings hikers beside Superior’s sandy beaches, and boaters find access to all three Hiawatha Great Lakes.
