Did you you know that there’s a ghost town on Lake Superior, near Whitefish Point on the U.P.? Shelldrake is a former logging community that faded away as the logging jobs did in this part of the state. Today, though, you can pitch your tent at a nearby state forest campground, hike to this abandoned Michigan village in less than an hour, and explore what remains of it.

Even if there’s not much of Shelldrake left to see, you’re sure to appreciate the stunning U.P. setting and the Lake Superior Shoreline. For another great hike to an abandoned Michigan village, head to Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park and follow the trail to the mining ghost town of Nonesuch.
