Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park: Presque Isle Campground Professional Review and Guide

"From a distance, these humped mountains along the southern shore of Lake Superior, bristling with old-growth northern hardwoods, are said to resemble a crouching porcupine. Henry Schoolcraft, a prodigious 19th-century explorer of the Northwest Territory, recorded the Chippewa name for the range as Kaug Wudju, their name for the prickly animal. Today, most people just call them the Porkies.

As part of the 59,000-acre Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park, the mountains are the backdrop to some of the state’s most stunning country. Rising up from the Great Lake to well over a thousand feet, the mountains are lined with hard-worn hiking trails, veined with rivers and streams, and dotted with lakes—including the picturesque Lake of the Clouds."
