We love this national park and are a little embarrassed to say we didn't know how awesome it was until we stumbled across it in 2016 on our way to Yellowstone. We actually liked this park MORE than Yellowstone, and can't wait to go back! The Tetons are INCREDIBLE!
We first came here in 2016 on our way to see my uncle in Bend. He suggested it to us and I can't believe I'd never heard of it. It's absolutely one of the most beautiful places in Oregon and a must-see as you're driving through!
We stopped here for the day on our way to Chicago from the upper peninsula of Michigan! We did a nice hike through the dunes to the lakeshore. It was definitely more intense than we thought, so bring more water than you think and go to the bathroom before you start the hike haha.
This is was such a great place to experience vanlife. Copper Harbor is a great stop for experiencing the outdoors-hiking, kite surfing and mountain biking! It's also the "gateway to Isle Royale National Park."
The town itself is VERY small, but it is a great spot to get away and very welcoming to RV'ers.
There are a couple of good restaurants as well as a microbrewery in town.
