The Small Town Lake In Michigan That's An Idyllic Summer Day Trip

Trent Jonas came to Minnesota to attend college - and never left. He's a Twin Cities-based writer with a BA in English and a MFA in creative writing, a Minnesota Master Naturalist, and the proud father of two adult children. With more than a decade of freelance writing experience under his belt, Trent is often out exploring his favorite topics: Minnesota's woods, lakes, and trails. Rhubarb pie is his weakness, so discovering new diners is also a passion.
If you’re looking for a lake experience in Michigan that’s a little farther from the madding crowds, head for Lake Gogebic on the Upper Peninsula. This rustic Michigan lake is surrounded by a national forest, and there are only a few tiny communities along its shores. It’s a great place to spend a day… or more. Let’s check it out!
We don’t think you’ll be disappointed with a day trip to Lake Gogebic, where you can enjoy some peace with far fewer fellow tourists. You can get even further off the grid with a visit to nearby Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park.
