Ontonagon, Michigan - Gateway to Copper Country


lake of the cloudsOntonagon, Michigan is perhaps the best kept secret in the western upper peninsula of Michigan. Steeped in the history of the copper country of Michigan, Ontonagon maintains traditional values while embracing the future. Take time to visit and enjoy a town you can walk through at night, stroll a beach just blocks from downtown and delight to some stunning views of Lake Superior.


A four season destination with plenty to do for every interest. The Ontonagon Water Trail, on Lake Superior, is as unique as you will find.  There is a lighthouse at one end, a shipwreck on the other and a top level campground in the middle.  Then there are the festivals including the Lake Trout Classic and Copper Fest among many others.
