State Park · Hidden Gem · Wildlife Area
Lake Gogebic State Park is a 360acre state park in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan on the shore of Lake Gogebic. Lake Gogebic is the largest inland lake in the Upper Peninsula. There is nearly a mile of beach front access. Camping is available with rustic to modern facilities. A 2mi nature trail winds through the Ottawa National Forest.
In 1926, Gogebic County purchased land on Lake Gogebic. The county then gave the land to the State of Michigan. E. J. Stickley and W. Bonafas gave additional land to the state and in 1930 the State Park opened.
Two gravestones were discovered in the park in 1962. One engraved with "1822 JOHN KEY" and the other with "1824 WHITH". Researchers say that they could belong to fur traders or others with undertakings with the Native Americans.

  • We landed and loaded boat there. Very clean and the boat landing and pier made it a easy task to land the boat.  more »
  • The bugs were vicious! But what would camping be without them. The site was very nice, had electrical outlets. The bathroom and showers were kept clean. It was a great relaxing atmosphere. A beautiful view of the lake. Nice professional staff. Also complimentary coffee and hot chocolate in the mornings. I will go back next year. šŸ˜
  • Nice neighbors. Lake is nice - nothing special. Not too much road noise. Maintenance of park is good. Loons on the lake gives you that northern feel.
