Places to Stay

The Twin Lakes area has several places to stay for travelers seeking access to the Keweenaw’s abundant forestland and wilderness areas. Parkview Lodge and Grill offers comfortable and clean motel rooms with onsite dining. And Krupps Resort offers affordable cabins for visitors on a budget.  Both options are right-off the winter and summer motorized trail system making them great options for snowmobilers and side-by-side groups.

Why Stay in Twin Lakes?

Staying in Twin Lakes opens up the entire SöKē (southern Keweenaw) area for visitors while still being about a half-hour drive from Houghton and Hancock. Twin Lakes State Park, which is excellent for boating, paddling, swimming and fishing, is the main attraction. But there’s plenty to do for outdoor lovers. Wyandotte Falls is a short distance from the State Park and the Keweenaw’s motorized ATV and snowmobile trail system runs right through Twin Lakes making it a great basecamp for riders. The beaches of Misery Bay and Agate Beach are both excellent options for those looking to enjoy Lake Superior.  And the SöKē system is a great option for mountain bike enthusiasts. Visitors interested in the Keweenaw’s copper mining heritage should also visit the Adventure Mine which offers underground tours. 

Staying in Twin Lakes also makes it easy to day trips down to the Ottawa National Forest, Porcupine Mountain Wilderness State Park, and a trio of the Keweenaw’s most scenic waterfalls: Bond Falls, Agate Falls and O ’Kun de Kun Falls. Head east to access other SöKē communities of Chassell and Baraga for other nearby attractions.
