Best of luck to you. We occasionally fish Lake Michigan in a buddy's 21' Procraft. We have to watch the weather and wind, timing it just right for the 2 hour drive up. It doesn't take much to make it a dicey proposition just getting out of the harbor.

Sorry, the Hat Point location is for ferry passenger parking only. There is no launching of boats, parking for boaters, camping or sleeping in vehicles allowed there. It is a ferry terminal only. The Grand Portage Marina and RV park is the only facility in the Grand Portage area that provides any of these amenities.
