This small village in the Keweenaw Peninsula is nestled around the harbor and faces north overlooking Lake Superior. Eagle Harbor is now a quaint harbor town but was a boom town in the early history of the Upper Peninsula. The red brick Eagle Harbor Lighthouse sits on the rocky entrance to the harbor and is a working lighthouse as it still guides mariners across the northern edge of the Keweenaw Peninsula. Scuba divers will find many wrecks just off shore in the Keweenaw Underwater Preserve. Relax in Eagle Harbor and watch the "lakers" (Great Lakes freighters) and "salties" (ocean going foreign ships) as they pass by upbound to Duluth or Canadian ports, or downbound to Sault Ste. Marie and the other Great Lakes.
