Went to the visitors center with out of town company. We were pleasantly surprised by how well done it was explaining the Copper Mining History of the Area. Artifacts, a short movie and a helpful staff make it a nice visit. Would Recommend if your interested in the history of the area.

The NPS has done a nice job in bringing the interesting, important and colorful past of the copper mining days to visitors. This area is unique and should be preserved. The copper industry had a very significant impact on American history and Copper Country of Michigan played a major role. Also the lumber and sandstone industries. Very worthwhile Park. Kudos to all the local residents of Calumet and Laurium who helped bring the Park here and kudos to the NPS for carrying it out so well.

The Keeweenaw is a beautiful area border by Lake Superior on three sides. There is so much to see! It is worth the trip.

Give yourself time for this tour. There is a lot to learn about the Keweenaw and the Upper Peninsula. We took the national park service guided tour through the historic district. The park service guided described the history of mining industry and shared stories about the various buildings. The tour provided a good understanding of what we wanted to explore more on our own.

We spent an entire day walking through the town, visiting shops, peeking in on historic sites, and stopping in restaurants and bars for lunch, dinner, and refreshments.

We went in the fall and drove all the way up to Copper Harbor. Lots of twists in the road and a beautiful tree canopy in a variety of colors.
