Picnicking

  • The Monument picnic area is located in what was probably the original mangeurs du lard "porkeaters" voyageurs encampment. The setting is right next to Grand Portage Bay on Lake Superior and has magnificent views of Point au Chapeaux (Hat Point) which "guards" the northeastern entrance to the Bay, Isle au mouton (Sheep Island) today's Grand Portage Island in the Bay's center and point a la Framboise (Raspberry Point) which protects the western entrance.
    • Picnic tables are located to take full advantage of the scenery which can be a fantastic conclusion or break during your visit to Grand Portage National Monument.
