Lake Gogebic is the largest lake in Upper Michigan. One of the Lake Gogebic's highlights is the fishing for walleye, jumbo perch, northern pike, smallmouth bass, and whitefish. Based on recent Michigan DNR records, Lake Gogebic hosts more state angler awards than any other lake in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.

The Lake encompasses 13,800 acres with 34.35 miles of beautiful shoreline. It is between 20 to 30 feet deep, and surrounded by the one million acre Ottawa National Forest. Various fishing contests are held on the Lake including the monthly Rod and Reel contest (during the summer months), a tagged fish contest (which lasts throughout the season) and several ice fishing contests. Prizes totaling thousands of dollars are awarded.

This region is also a prime hunting hot spot for whitetail deer, black bear, duck and goose, as well as other partridge and other types of small game.

The activity changes in the Winter to snowmobiling on the Lake. Many miles of groomed trails surround the Lake. There's also downhill skiing nearby. Lake Gogebic offers the perfect place for those on a honeymoon, vacationing families and those that enjoy the outdoors. With many fine lodging and dining facilities surrounding the Lake there's always plenty of indoor fun as well.
