The skies are alive in the Brimley area. Bird lovers need to seriously consider making a Brimley a must-stop location.

Fun in the sun, Fun at night

Between state parks, Lake Superior, some of Michigan’s greatest attractions within a short drive, Brimley has it all. But, did you know you can find fun at any time at Brimley’s Point Iroquois Lighthouse? Not only is it a historic lighthouse that’s a must-see during its summer business hours. It’s also one of the best places to gaze at stars in the Upper Peninsula. Sit along Lake Superior during pitch-black nights for a chance to see the Northern Lights or your favorite constellation.


There is a playground of trails available in the Brimley area whether you’re looking for silent sports or motorized fun. Cross-country skiers and snowshoes can enjoy the Brimley State Park, Monocole Lake Campground, Big Pine Picnic Area and more. Likewise, snowmobile lovers have access to trails that connect throughout the Eastern Upper Peninsula.

“We say life here is about drinking in the atmosphere; of looking up at the sky to see that night sky with the stars and the beauty, or to walk a trail and to think of those a thousand years earlier who walked it before you. It is the center of the Great Lakes, and it always has been.”
