Discover the Midwest’s last great wilderness this spring!
Springtime in the Porcupine Mountains gives visitors a chance to see the forests come to life! Local rivers and streams are swollen with spring melt-water, making it the best time of the year to see the area’s spectacular waterfalls. There are hundreds of waterfalls throughout the area—including more than 90 in the Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park. Agate Falls, Bonanza Falls, Cascade Falls and O Kun-de-kun Falls are at their most majestic during the spring. But you’ll also find many smaller waterfalls that are equally as breathtaking. Learn more about seeing the waterfalls of the Porcupine Mountains.
During the spring, anglers will find outstanding fishing, particularly for trout and salmon running up the area’s many free-running rivers and streams. Spring also brings some of the year’s best beachcombing. Explore 21 miles of sand Lake Superior beaches and find a treasure trove of driftwood and interesting rocks.
Discovering the rushing waters and sandy beaches of the Porcupine Mountains Wilderness is like taking a step back in time. However, area motels, cabins, inns and resorts provide you with all the modern conveniences you need for a fun, comfortable and relaxing spring getaway. Plan your Porcupine Mountains spring trip!
