OJIBWA RECREATION AREA
RED PINES CAMPGROUND
The Red Pines Campground is located on the left of the Recreation Area with 60 sites nestled among the stately red pine trees. There is a pavilion in this campground for group gatherings. The annual Keweenaw Bay Maawanji-iding or Pow-wow is held in this campground every summer in July.
Campground guests can swim by the lake front campgrounds or there is a sandy swimming beach on the road that takes you past the Red Pines Campground. Take your chair, blanket, a book and you are set for a lovely time relaxing on the beach and enjoying the view across Keweenaw Bay. The darker sand is stamp sand that has migrated from a copper stamp mill that was located several miles north of the lighthouse.
The Marina, located by the Lake Front Campground, offers a boat ramp for launching your boat for fishing or boating on Keweenaw Bay. Slips are available for overnight or longer rentals. Try your luck fishing for lake trout, salmon, large mouth bass, steelhead trout, plus a variety of other fish or cruise along the shoreline and enjoy the beautiful waters of Lake Superior.

SAND POINT LIGHTHOUSE
The exterior of the Sand Point Lighthouse has been returned to its original design with the removal of the enclosed porch that had been added to the dwelling. The lighthouse, first lit in 1878, has been deactivated and replaced by an automated light. The grounds are open to the public but the dwelling is not open to visitors at this time.
SAND POINT ARCHELOGICAL SITE
The Sand Point Archeological Site, spread over 19 acres on private Keweenaw Bay Indian Community property, contains the remains of a Lake Woodland Period Village with 12 burial mounds that historians believe were occupied approximately 1100-1400 AD, and a variety of artifacts. The Sand Point Lighthouse and the Sand Point Archeological Site are both listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
