Your Up North Recreation Destination

The City of Wakefield is a small community near Lake Superior in the western end of Michigan's Upper Peninsula, right in the heart of Big Snow Country! We are near three of the finest ski hills in the Midwest.


Hugging the Little Black River and beautiful Sunday Lake, a scenic three mile walking and biking path provides residents and passers thru an opportunity to stroll or ride. Eddy Park sits on the north side of the Lake, offering fishing, a swimming beach, two pavilions, an extensive playground, and camping facilities. Across the Lake (and still in town) enjoy a pasty from our world famous bakery, partake in a Friday night fish fry, or dine at a handful of local favorites.

Amazing Fall Colors Await!

The seasons are changing and fall colors are making their way in. It's hard to find a fall color experience that matches the splendor of the area around Wakefield. This fall take a trip down the nearby Black River Scenic Byway or Porcupine Mountains, ride your ATV, hike, or bike our trails, or enjoy a day at Sunday Lake's Eddy Park to experience all that Fall has to offer.
