Big Eric/s Crossing is a famous fishing spot on the HuronRiver, and Baraga County maintains a campground at the bridge.The river is high from late September until late May, so theoutcrops along the river are best visited during the middle andlate summer.
Sites 2 and 3 are on private land. However, so long as visitsare brief, and visitors continue to respect the surface and theexposures, property owners in the Upper Peninsula tend not topost their lands.
