An quick stroll before bedtime to America Dock and you will be welcomed to beautiful sunsets hitting on Lake Superior. The sun hits the trees and lake so perfectly, you will be taken away by how incredible the sunset is.

Take the Kneutson Trail next to the lodge for 700 feet and you will come upon the America Dock. This century old dock provides a great view of the bay area and other smaller islands at sunset.
