Things To Do


Brimley State Park provides recreational opportunities along the beautiful shore of Lake Superior's Whitefish Bay. One of the oldest state parks in the Upper Peninsula, it was established in 1923 when the Village of Brimley gave the DNR the park's initial 38 acres. The remaining acreage was acquired through purchase or exchange. Hunting, fishing, boating and hiking are popular amenities found at Brimley.
