Lake Gogebic is a large lake in the Western UP which offers a number of recreational opportunities. One of the nice things about this region is there are so many lakes you rarely find one that is crowded. The water is decent for swimming and the trail is easy to follow (although it can be a little wet in the Spring). The trail seemed to have a moderate amount of use. As always in the UP gnats and mosquitoes can be bothersome from May-August but you can develop a tolerance fairly quickly. I don't really recommend shore fishing here as there are more productive lakes in the area for this. If you are here to fish bring a canoe or a boat to cover more terrain. For a more rugged experience consider a trip to the Porcupine Mountains just North of here. The Superior Highlands in nearby Wisconsin are also desirable to hike or canoe.
