Lake Gogebic has several bays and streams coming into the lake, making it an ideal spot for kayakers. There are also several public areas where kayaker's can access the lake: the Bergland Bay, two County Parks and one State Park along the west shore of the lake, along with several businesses which would allow access for kayaker's to gain entrance to the lake. Although kayak rentals are fairly new to the Lake Gogebic area, local rentals are available. Navigable water maps are available with a rental. Look for streams coming into the lake along most shores, but especially at the south end of the lake and the Merriweather Creek at the northwest corner. Viewing blue herons, multiple duck breeds, bald eagle, beaver, otter along with a host of other air and water wild life are just a few of the things that make this "silent sport" so popular.

Winter is a "world of its own" with an annual snowfall of nearly 300 inches. Lake Gogebic is situated within a vast snowmobile trail system extending throughout the Upper Peninsula. Cross country ski trails are abundant and five major downhill ski facilities are less than a hour's drive. It is a great place to use snowshoes.

The evenings are often full of Northern Lights and a wolf's cry. The dress is casual and the attitudes are friendly. Bring sweaters for summer evenings and expect beautiful warm days. Winters are harsh and fall is cool, but the seasons are amazing.
