Have you been daydreaming about the opportunity to escape everyday life and appreciate a healthy dose of Michigan’s natural beauty? It’s never too early to start planning your next getaway, and one destination here in the Great Lakes State will capture your heart with its stunning location and rustic charm. As you plot for upcoming adventures, keep this state park lodge in Michigan on your list of options.
Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park is located within both Gogebic and Ontonagon Counties in the Upper Peninsula. This spectacular natural expanse sits along the rugged shores of Lake Superior.
The park is Michigan’s largest, offering a whopping 60,000 acres of land to explore. Whether you’re a first-timer or a regular visitor, the Porcupine Mountains will take your breath away around every bend.
With over 90 miles of hiking trails, seemingly endless forested space, campsites, waterfalls, and – of course – access to mountains so lovingly known as the Porkies, this park is nothing short of a wonderland.
This beautiful structure near the entrance of the park’s campground featured an Ojibwa name meaning “place of the crouching porcupine.” When you book a stay, you’ll immediately feel a sense of serenity.
While many guests opt to enjoy day trips or try their hand at rustic camping, there’s a lovely lodge tucked away within the park that’s so worth a journey. The Kaug Wudjoo Modern Lodge sleeps up to 12.
While it’s been updated throughout the generations, the lodge was constructed in the 1940s. It features four bedrooms, a bathroom and a half, a cozy fireplace, and even free on-site wifi. What’s not to appreciate?
During your visit, appreciate private views of Lake Superior, convenient access to all the attractions within the state park, and ample outdoor space. The lodge can be booked up to a full year in advance.
As you begin to explore options for your next family vacation here in Michigan, keep the breathtaking Kaug Wudjoo Lodge atop the list. This one-of-a-kind locale is sure to provide timeless and magical memories.
