The “Porkies”

The Porcupine Mountains, tucked into the northwestern corner of the UP, are one of the largest state parks east of the Mississippi R. They have numerous waterfalls, camp sites and hiking trails and look out over Lake Superior. The area prospered for a while from mining and timber in the 1900s; now, not so much. The region is now focusing on tourism and outdoor recreation and seems to doing reasonably well.
