Twin Lakes State Park makes a good base camp for many area attractions. Travel north to Historic Fort Wilkins where the lives of the soldiers and their families during the mining boom of the 1840's are re-enacted. Travel south and see how the first miners lived at the restored mining community at Victoria or enjoy a hike on one of the trails in the Porcupine Mountains. Other area attractions include the copper mines near Hancock and Delaware and the historic and mineralogical museums in the area. There is also a newly created Keweenaw National Historic Park in Calumet.
