The Whitefish Dunes State Park stands as an eloquent park site in the U.S. State of Wisconsin. It is situated on a land area of 867 acres (351 hectares). The U.S. State Park site was founded and established in the year 1967. The park is swanked by an array of rare mammals such as skunks, woodchucks, raccoons, rabbits and squirrels. It is a magnificent avenue to indulge into recreational activities such as fishing, boating, canoeing and swimming. The State Park is an elegant avenue for all ages.
The proud maritime heritage of the Upper Peninsula is completely captured in this museum that, in some ways, almost comes across as a shrine to a by-gone era. Boats of every kind including steam barges, Mackinacs, fishing tugs, and canoes used by pioneer fur trappers, are all presented in wonderful detail. There are also loads of displays and exhibits crammed with maritime hardware such as ship's wheels, propellers and anchors. The tour through the museum is all self-guided. Timings for some days may vary, please call ahead.
