Twin Lakes State Park

 

Twin Lakes State Park is situated in Michigan's Copper Country located in Houghton County, 15 miles northeast of Mass City and 26 miles southwest of Houghton/Hancock on Highway M-26. The 175-acre modern campground is located on the southwest shore of Lake Roland.

Twin Lakes State Park has excellent playground facilities and one of the best swimming beaches of the Copper Country State Parks.  Lake Roland warms up early in the summer, making it ideal for swimming, water sports, and water skiing. Fishermen have the opportunities of catching 16 different species of fish.  The Park boasts horseshoe pits, a volleyball net, great picnic areas, enclosed shelters and a boat launch site.
