This small village in the Keweenaw Peninsula is nestled around the harbor and faces north overlooking Lake Superior. Eagle Harbor is now a quaint harbor town but was a boom town in the early history of the Upper Peninsula. The red brick Eagle Harbor Lighthouse sits on the rocky entrance to the harbor and is a working lighthouse as it still guides mariners across the northern edge of the Keweenaw Peninsula. Scuba divers will find many wrecks just off shore in the Keweenaw Underwater Preserve. Relax in Eagle Harbor and watch the "lakers" (Great Lakes freighters) and "salties" (ocean going foreign ships) as they pass by upbound to Duluth or Canadian ports, or downbound to Sault Ste. Marie and the other Great Lakes.

Copper Harbor Michigan Snowmobile Trail Report

ATTENTION GEM & MINERAL HUNTERS. Near Copper Falls (between Eagle River and Eagle Harbor) an old mine dump contains natrolite and datolite. The datolite is mostly porcelainic white, but occasionally delicate tints of pink and yellow and copper and silver inclusions are found. Datolite takes a beautiful polish. Agates can be collected along the Lake Superior shore where they have been worn away from the lava flows by wave action. The shore road from Eagle Harbor to Copper Harbor provides access to a number of collecting localities. For the most part, these agates are not large or showy. The concentrically banded variety predominates; the mass type is extremely rare. Occasionally greenstones (chlorastrolites) are found.
