The Marquette area is renowned for its world-class, four-season outdoor recreational opportunities. Whether you enjoy walks along the beautiful Lake Superior shoreline, river or inland lake fishing, hunting, quiet hikes in the woods, or ripping it up on world-class, single-track mountain biking trails, we feature it all.

Our natural resources are part of our community fabric. Recreational planning in Marquette Township aims to develop and promote recreational opportunities that meet the needs of the township’s residents, visitors and tourists — regardless of their abilities.
