Isle Royale & Keweenaw Parks Association works with two of this country's most unique national parks.
For more than 75 years, people from around the U.S. and beyond have traveled to Isle Royale National Park to fish the cold waters of Lake Superior, backpack the wilderness trails, kayak or canoe the rocky shoreline or inland lakes, study the park's wolves and moose, watch the northern lights, and soak in the quiet and solitude of the island. The park celebrated its 75th anniversary on April 3, 2015!
Isle Royale's neighbor park, Keweenaw National Historical Park, joined the National Park System in October 1992. It celebrates the endeavors of immigrants from nations across Europe who came to the rugged Keweenaw peninsula to mine its rich copper veins, log its majestic white pines, and eke out a living from its rocky soil.
Members of the Isle Royale & Keweenaw Parks Association provide needed financial support of our efforts to share the stories of these two very special parks with park visitors, schoolchildren, and people around the world.
