Fun & Recreation in Wakefield

Wakefield is situated in the center of four season recreation on the Gogebic Range with waterfalls, hiking trails, mountain biking, beaches, ATV and snowmobile trails, hunting, fishing, downhill and cross country skiing, and more right in our backyard. The beautiful shores of Lake Superior and wilderness of the Porcupine Mountains are mere miles away for a short day outing. Also, don't forget the area's most popular sandy beach at Sunday Lake located right in the city. Spend the afternoon with family and friends on the beach, in the playground, on the water, or in one of the pavilions and stay at the beautiful campground with full hookups and facilities for RVs or tents.


Beautiful Sunday Lake is situated in the center of the city of Wakefield and is home to Eddy Park and Campground.  The park offers a comfortable sandy beach and swimming area, pavilions available or rent, a boat launch, and a large playground.
