We've been able to open a few of the seasonal cabins this week for the year, in observance of this upcoming weekend's trout opener: Speakers, Little Carp, Lake Superior, Big Carp 4 and 6 bunks. The rest of the seasonal cabins remain closed and inaccessible. Hiking to the newly opened cabins will be from County Road 519 and South Boundary Road (adding many miles onto the hike in, now about 3 1/5 miles more, making it a 7 1/2 mile hike in one way).

SOUTH BOUNDARY ROAD REMAINS SNOWBOUND AND CLOSED FROM THE WEST SIDE, BUT HAS BEEN OPENED UP FROM 107 HIGHWAY TO UNION RIVER OUTPOST CAMPGROUND ON THE EAST SIDE.

Keys must be picked up at the Headquarters between 8 am and 4 pm eastern time. Driving to these cabins from the Headquarters will be by taking the highway system around, outside the park.

The 107 Highway to Lake of the Clouds remains snowbound, closed and impassible. Call ahead for your trip plans and check back here often as we will update as we transition the park into summer. (Big Carp 4 bunk cabin photo is from last fall, bridge photo is older than that of a temporary bridge we had while the new bridge was being built upstream). #miparks #midnr #spring #cabins #fishing

Hands down the best vacation I ever took as a kid! Would love to now bring my family there!!

Thanks for the update. Is that a current photo in terms of the bridge being fixed even though a "permanent" bridge was put in 1/2 mile upstream? And, since that bridge was put in, are there any plans to reroute the path further away from Big Carp 4 to be less intrusive? I've heard it's pretty hard to get new trails approved. Thanks.

Think there will be a shot at camping Union Bay May 21st?

We’re coming on Friday!! Looking forward to some pleasant hiking!

Can’t wait to Snowmobile up there again this weekend

Can you get to these with a side by side or do you have to walk in to get to them?

Great Information...

Be there soon but not soon enough

Chris Ranta.

Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park - the "Porkies"

The South Boundary and M107 roads remain closed by the County Road Commissions because of snow cover. They will not be open until closer to May, or into May. The campgrounds remain closed as we wait for them to dry out and the snow to melt. Cross Country Ski trails are still available to hike but are not suitable for snowshoeing or skiing. Please check back here for updates. #midnr #miparks #snow #spring ... See MoreSee Less
