WHO WE ARE
Owners Stacey and Nick came across the Ahmeek Coppermine in summer 2020. The mine buildings were dilapidated and the property was in disrepair, but they could see the potential. Knowing it was full of possibilities, it wasn’t long before they purchased the property, turning it into something truly special — a place where others could come and enjoy it as much as they did.
We both fell in love with the Keweenaw Peninsula and knew we had uncovered a hidden gem when we found the Ahmeek Coppermine.
Rich in history and natural beauty, they decided to build a campground with cabins and campsites, a deck and fire pit next to the pond, to appeal to all kinds of adventure seekers. Their love of historical architecture led them to begin restoring the buildings and property with the dream of bringing them back to their original condition. It took them 1.5 years during a pandemic, but it was definitely a labor of love. Stacey's favorite activity is hunting rocks and taking long walks around the property with her dog, Jake. As for Nick, he takes full advantage of the major trail system on his snowmobile and ATV, while he’s dreaming up his next big project.
The Ahmeek Coppermine Camp is a primitive campground located in Mohawk on the grounds of a historic coppermine in the heart of Michigan's Keweenaw Peninsula. Dating back to the early 1900s, the Ahmeek Mine was one of the most prosperous mines in the region, with shafts running up to 10,000 feet deep. Many ruins still exist today, and Ahmeek is a treasure trove for collectors looking for those rare finds. Minerals found here include copper, silver, datolite, calcite crystals and domeykite.
