The Copper Country is an area in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan in the United States, consisting of Keweenaw, Houghton, Baraga and Ontonagon counties. The area is so named as copper mining was prevalent there from the mid to late-19th century until 1968.
While mining continues on a small scale, tourism and logging are now the area's major industries. Popular tourist destinations include the cities of Copper Harbor and Houghton, and the Porcupine Mountains with Lake of the Clouds. Snowmobiling is very popular in the winter, and snowmobile trails are found in most areas.
The Copper Country is largely rural, and many areas of the have been designated as state parks or similar designations. These include McLain State Park, Porcupine Mountains State Park, and the Copper Country State Forest.
