Fort Wilkins Historic State Park

Fort Wilkins Historic State Park, located in the northern Keweenaw Peninsula, features camping, day-use facilities, a restored 1844 army military outpost and one of the first lighthouses on Lake Superior built in 1866. Fort Wilkins became a state park in 1923. Extensive restoration work and development began in the 1930s under the Work Project Administration. The West campground will temporarily close from early to mid-May for some enhancement work. The East campground will remain open for semi-modern camping with the exception of 19 sites. These sites will close May through June to allow the grass/landscaping to reestablish. In addition, the park's mini cabin is closed April to mid-May while work on the water line project at the sanitation station takes place. (updated 1/31/23)
