Summer

The possibilities for summer are endless in the north woods. At Krupp’s resort itself, enjoy a family vacation with all the classics: fishing, boating, swimming, campfires, picnics and more. At night, keep an eye out for the northern lights. Only barely leaving the resort, enjoy the Bill Nicholls Trail by foot, bike or ATV, golf a 9-hole course at Omer’s or go on a hike. Within a 30-minute drive, experience waterfalls, historic copper mine tours at the Adventure Mine and Quincy Mine (among others), agate hunting along the shores of Lake Superior, small Upper Michigan towns and homemade pastys from our neighbors at Krupp’s Mini-Mart or other restaurants in the area.

Fall

The change in season is one of the most magical times to visit the Upper Peninsula. With endless forests, the changing colors are a sight to behold. Take in the views while enjoying the Bill Nicholls Trail, from a deer blind during hunting season, or on a hike at the nearby Porcupine Mountain State Park. Visit during the Lake Superior Performance Rally to see cars whipping through the bright trees at top speeds. Take in 9-holes of golf at Omer’s or explore the area’s copper mining history with a tour of the Adventure Mine.

Winter

Winters in the western Upper Peninsula bring mountains of snow. Enjoy the quiet coziness of being surrounded by winter in one of our cabins or embrace the snowy outdoors. Spend your day exploring miles of snowmobile routes on the Bill Nicholls Trail or strap on your snowshoes or cross country skis for an adventure in the trees. Snowmobile trail condition information is available here. Looking for more vertical outdoor activity? Visit Mont Ripley or the Porcupine Mountain ski hill for downhill skiing or snowboarding. Ask your host for suggestions on good sledding spots or make a snowman in Krupp’s recreation field.

Spring

Watch the forest return to life after the long winter. With all the runoff from the snow melt, spring is an excellent time to tour the region’s waterfalls. Take advantage of the quieter time in Upper Peninsula tourism to enjoy nearby attractions and historic sites without as much tourist traffic. Enjoy a hike and notice all of the blooming flowers and the buds on the trees or be one of the first to ride the Bill Nicholls Trail for the season. Golf a round of 9 at Omer’s or take a walking or rappelling copper mine tour at the Adventure Mine.
