Fort Wilkins Historic State Park
Fort Wilkins Historic State Park is a 700 acre state park with 159 modern campsites, a mini cabin, a camper cabin, six miles of hiking and biking trails, 1.5 miles of Lake Superior shoreline and 3 miles of Lake Fanny Hooe shoreline. The park contains the Fort Wilkins Historic Complex, which was once an active U.S. Army post built to keep the peace in Michigan’s Copper Country. Begun in 1844 and abandoned just two years later, the fort was briefly regarrisoned in the late 1860’s. Today, Fort Wilkins is a well-preserved example of mid-19th century army life on the northern frontier. Through exhibits, audiovisual programs and living history interpretation, visitors may explore the daily routine of military service, experience the hardships of frontier isolation and discover the lifeways of another era. The park also includes the Copper Harbor Lighthouse Complex with a restored 1848 lightkeeper’s dwelling, 1866 lighthouse, and interpretive trails. The lighthouse complex is reached by boat daily through the summer season.
