Eagle Harbor is the northernmost point of the Keweenaw Peninsula, facing Lake Superior and Canada. Be prepared for lots of snow. The lake effect snow machine really goes into action around Eagle Harbor. The Eagle Harbor area receives 16 to 20 feet of snow annually. We're not talking inches here, we are talking feet.
You are only 13 miles from Copper Harbor, so be sure to take a snowmobile ride on the Brockway Mountain Trail and enjoy sledding the the Eagles Loop between Eagle Harbor, Eagle River, and Phoenix.
