Things to do
Hike, fish, swim, camp, kayak, dogsled or simply wander along a quiet trail – there are almost as many ways to enjoy the Lake Superior National Marine Conservation Area as there are waves on its vast watery face. An annual stopping point for hundreds of species of migratory birds and home to a wide range of waterfowl and wildlife, Lake Superior is an outdoor enthusiast’s dream destination.
