Located southwest of Copper Harbor on Keweenaw County's south shore, Bete Grise (French for "Grey Beast") has a beautiful white sand beach. It is the jumping off point for water travels to the Montreal River and the south shore of the Keweenaw. Lake freighters can sometimes be seen sheltering here during stormy days on Lake Superior. Now a private residence, the Mendota Light once guided travelers along Keweenaw's south shore and through the Mendota Canal.
