Nestled high in the 58,000 acres of the Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park, this beautiful lake is an easy drive from comfortable accommodations. A spectacular lookout can be accessed via a short woodland trail or the ADA access trail. Take in the view of Lake of the Clouds, hundreds of feet below. Hikers seeking longer adventures will find over 80 miles of marked hiking trails provide enchanting scenery at every bend. The park's trails skirt four secluded lakes, waterfalls and high surrounding peaks. Climb the Summit Peak Observation Tower. Nature lovers will find a spectacular wilderness a short distance from motels and resorts. The opportunities for recreation are limitless: some of the Midwest's finest alpine and cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, hunting, fishing and swimming may be enjoyed in the "Porkies" areas. A visitors' center off the South Boundary Road provides visitors with complete information about Lake of the Clouds and the park's facilities. After exploring the park, enjoy nearby fine dining and quality lodging properties.
