Lac La Belle
Boat Launch : Marina
Just 15 minutes from Copper Harbor on the “south shore,” next door to Mount Bohemia, Lac La Belle is one of the largest inland lakes in the Keweenaw. On northeast side of the lake there is a state marina and boat launch, gas and additional dockage — plus some mighty good fishing, boating and paddling. Lac La Belle is linked directly to Lake Superior via a man-made channel maintained by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and offers access to the BIG LAKE, while at the same time providing a beautiful harbor of refuge in wetland sloughs.
Located on the other side of the Keweenaw fault from Copper Harbor, the topography of this area is quite different than the “north shore,” with layers of beautiful marbled sandstone. Lac La Belle, meaning beautiful lake, is the name of the lake and the town, while the Gay-Lac La Belle Road is very scenic with many roadside parks to enjoy.
