Things To Do in the Western U.P. of Michigan
Throughout the year the hills and valleys of Bessemer provide you with beautiful vistas, waterfalls, and endless recreational opportunities. From skiing and snowmobiling to mountain biking, hiking and fishing, your day can be as full as you want.
At Big Powderhorn Lodging you are only minutes away from many fine establishments for entertainment, dining, shopping and exploring. The towns of Wakefield, Bessemer, Ironwood and Hurley are just a short drive from your cabin. Each community is unique and offers various shopping and dining experiences.
All are historic mining communities and offer a look back at the time when mining was the principal industry. Don’t pass up the chance to visit the museums and historic community buildings that each town offers.

The Other Seasons
While winter is our prime season, BPLA is open year round and offers special savings during the “other season.” You’ll find great family vacation values as Big Powderhorn Lodging dramatically rolls back its prices for spring, summer and fall vacations. Nightly, weekly, and monthly rates make it easy to spend as much time as you need to explore summer in Big Snow Country. Whether it’s hiking along the North Country Trail or Lake Superior beaches, or mountain biking along the hundreds of miles of logging back roads, you’re only minutes away from your Big Powderhorn cabin.
Spring is the perfect time to visit the Western U.P. for cascading waterfalls. With our 200+ inches of annual snowfall melting with the warmer temperatures, our area’s waterfalls come to life! Take in the roaring waters this Spring! Waterfall Guide
Autumn is short and sweet in the Western U.P. but it sure is something to be admired. The changing colors are absolutely beautiful and nothing beats an Autumn Waterfall Color Tour.
Fishing, golfing, tennis and more are only minutes from Big Powderhorn. Ask our Vacation Planners for details as we can help to arrange for guide services, tee times and more.
