    Pokegama Recreation Area

    Just three miles upstream from Grand Rapids, on Hwy. 2, is this beautiful recreation area developed and maintained by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Here you will find Class A waterfront camping sites, picnic and playground areas, hiking trails, restrooms, and a fishing dock. Pokegama is always open.

    The Fedral dam on the Mississippi River. It's located just west of town on highway 2. It's really not that big because way up here the Mississippi isn't that big but there are some good hiking paths on the other side of the dam and a campground along side it.(pic. of swamp near Lake Pokegama)

    The abandoned Tioga mine is a great place to go mountain biking. There are alot of old roads that have been partially grown over but makes for a great off-road ride. There are no maps of the mine so you can get lost easily, I still do even though I've been riding them for years. And when your done riding you can take a dip in the turquiose blue pit lake or bike up the road to the public beach on lake Pokegama.
