Michigan: The Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park

With over 90 miles of trails, Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park is also Michigan’s LARGEST state park.

We recommend you check out the Summit Peak observation tower for some breathtaking views of Lake Superior, the lush forests, and the beautiful streaming rivers.

Minnesota: Itasca State Park

As you can expect from a state like Minnesota, Itasca has more than 100 lakes within its borders. But what truly makes this park unique is the fact that it holds the headwaters of the Mississippi River.

Mississippi: Tishomingo State Park

Going through this park, you’ll get to drive the historic Natchez Trace Parkway, a road that dates all the way back to the 1800s. It’s got sensational scenery, and it’s situated at the foot of the Appalachian Mountains.

This mountain is home to some very unique geological highlights, including stone-cut ravines and boulders that are scattered throughout the park. Visitors can camp, hike, canoe, fish, and picnic at the park. Rock climbing is also an option, but only with a permit.
