McLain State Park Professional Review and Guide

"Situated just to the northeast of where the Portage Shipping Channel reaches Lake Superior, the state park is also halfway between Calumet and Hancock, making it a great base of operations for visiting historic mining sites in the area. The 2 miles of shore are sandy, while many other stretches on the Keweenaw Peninsula are rocky. The Keweenaw Waterway Lighthouse is near the park. The campsites are either on or near the edge of the lake. Be aware that it can be rather windy and chilly even in summer when the lake is in that sort of mood. Hikers have 4 miles of trail to explore that cross the highway and run along Bear Lake as well. Fishing is possible off the pier out to the lighthouse."
