Make your next reunion one you will always remember by hosting it in the Keweenaw Peninsula. The Keweenaw offers plenty of lodging options for your group, as well as a variety of family-friendly activities and adventures.
The Keweenaw offers an escape from the everyday hustle and bustle of life, making it the perfect place to reconnect with your friends and family. Make your reunion special by choosing an accommodation that is unique to the Keweenaw. Rent out a group of cabins on the lake or in the forest and enjoy northwoods vibes with your loved ones. Many cabins also offer access to barbeques, fire pits, hiking trails, or even kayaks to make your time in the Keweenaw even more special.
When organizing a reunion, it's nice to have a plan. While there are many great Keweenaw activities, these are some of our favorites group activities to do with family and friends.
Grab your flip-flops, coolers, and beach chairs because it's time to take your party to the beach! With 125 miles of Lake Superior shoreline to explore, this has to be on your itinerary. We recommend hosting a reunion barbeque at one of the Keweenaw's lakeside parks, like Calumet Waterworks Park or McLain State Park. These parks offer pavilions, barbeques (bring your charcoal with you), playgrounds, and restroom facilities, which makes hosting your next get together a little easier.
The Keweenaw National Historical Park features over 20 unique heritage sites that dive into the fascinating history of what life in the Keweenaw was like since the peak of the copper mining boom. Take your reunion underground on a mine tour or check out the hands on exhibits at the KNHP Headquarters in Calumet.
Nothing beats a good outdoor adventure! The Keweenaw is home to countless miles of outdoor trails that can be explored on foot, by bike, or even on ORVs. Hiking and biking trails range from easy to difficult, making it easy to find one that best suits your party. Group mountain bike tours and sea kayaking tours are available for all skill levels at the Keweenaw Adventure Company.
You've had your beach barbeque and picnics, now you want to sit down and enjoy a meal as a group. There are several restaurants in the Keweenaw that can accommodate larger parties, but we recommend calling ahead to let them know when you're coming. If you have a larger group and want a more private party, we recommend renting the upstairs space at the Bonfire at the Continental Fire Co. in Houghton. Gino's in Hancock also has a back room that can be reserved for larger groups. If you're staying farther North, give the Calumet's Michigan House or Copper Harbor's Mariner North a call.
