Spotlights

Great Lighthouses

Point Iroquois Lighthouse

Six historic lighthouses stand on Hiawatha’s Great Lakes shorelines, five of which are owned entirely or in part by the Forest Service.

Great Lakeshores

Visitors enjoy the Hiawatha

The Hiawatha offers visitors access to undeveloped shores of three of America’s great inland seas -- Lakes Superior, Michigan, and Huron.

 




Great Snow

Skiers follow trail in wooded area.

When there’s no snow elsewhere, winter sports enthusiasts look to the U.P. With 200 inches of snowfall yearly in some areas, it’s no wonder!

Great Islands

Relax and enjoy our islands and lakeshores!

The Hiawatha boasts four distinctly different Great Lakes islands. Each offers something unique to visitors.
