A place to unplug and explore

The Ahmeek Coppermine Camp is a primitive campground located on the grounds of a historic copper mine in the heart of Michigan's Keweenaw Peninsula.  The Ahmeek Mine was one of the most successful copper mines in the region and was constructed in 1902. Many ruins of the old mine still exist on the property. Ahmeek sounds like it looks: Ah-meek and means 'beaver' in the Chippewa language.


This is a rustic campground (no hookups) for those who want to unplug and get back to nature. It's ideal for bikers, hikers, riders and sledders because it connects directly to the KP trail system which can transport you to some of the most pristine and remote parts of the country.
