Heritage Hills
5 sites · RVs, Tents21 acres · Ishpeming, MichiganHeritage Hills isn't called Heritage Hills for nothing! It's situated on 21 acres of what was the original Wawonowin Country Club, a 9-hole golf course that was built in the early 1800s and then closed in the mid 1960s. This area was boom town in those early days because the very spot where iron ore was discovered is within walking distance! You are free to explore by foot, bike or horse the whole 800 acres between Ishpeming and Negaunee (and further if you would like!) and expedience this diverse area of hardwoods, pines, meadows and some wetlands, too, to discover many historical spots of interest. We can provide a map if you would like to explore on your own, or put together a special tour by wagon or horse to see top points of interest like Mathews Cross: a big steel cross mounted in a big rock about 600 some feet up, erected by historian Frank Mathews in  honor of all the miners who died. You can walk around Union Park originally built for the Green Bay packer team (now the Packers) to play the Ishpeming/Negaunee football team but later a horse harness race track where Buffalo Bill and his Wild West Show performed! Explore areas of old mines, and where Iron ore was discovered: the Iron Ore Heritage trail is nearby, too. It's a 48 mile walking & biking trail with historical points and old shafts and pits along that way - it goes all the way to Lake Superior if you dare go that far! Heritage Hills came to be 8 years ago as 'Heritage Hills Horseback Riding' where we did just that - lots of horseback riding with guided horseback rides for the public! We still do a few limited public trail rides and, of course, have horses and ponies on the property, but we do so much more:* Wagon rides in summer & sleigh rides in winter.* Horse camps for kids and adults every Friday in the summer.* We are certified in the EAGALA model of equine assisted psychotherapy along with a learning technique with horses called Horse Powered Reading.

Hidden away on the shores of Lake Superior, Marquette is one of Michigan’s best-kept secrets. Getting there is an adventure in itself — this small town lies 450 miles north of Detroit. With its evergreen forests, starry skies, and crisp, clean water, Marquette is worth the trip.

Here, you’re never far from the perfect campsite. About 2 miles north of downtown, the Marquette Tourist Park offers 110 sites with picnic tables and fire pits. Book the RV park to enjoy full hookups, or choose a rustic tent site near the Dead River. Cool off at the kid-friendly beach, or ride into town on the city bike path.

Are you looking for true Upper Peninsula wilderness? Head to the secluded Little Lake State Forest Campground. Local families love the quiet sites, calm water, and Wi-Fi connection at Van Riper State Park. Or, get off-grid with a backcountry campsite in the Hiawatha National Forest.c

Summers are warm and sunny in Marquette, creating perfect camping conditions. Stay in town, or drive down to Munising to paddle by the Pictured Rocks. Fall, with its brilliant leaves and crisp air, is one of the best times to visit. Head down to the lake during an autumn gale — you might even see surfers riding the huge waves.

In the winter, lake-effect snow blankets the Marquette area. Try ice fishing on an inland lake, or break out your cross-country skis. Tent camping is possible, but a cabin or yurt rental is more comfortable when the temperatures drop below zero. Be sure to bring warm layers; evenings are cool year-round.
