Explore Like A Local

For those who harbor the soul of an explorer, Marquette County represents a quest more than a vacation. We hope you will enjoy an immersive experience in a community where respect of nature rewards you with magnificent outdoor adventures, today, and for years to come.

As you ‘Make your Marq’ we ask that you will explore responsibly and Leave No Trace.


Plan Ahead 

Check the weather. Your day pack may include a trash bag, refillable water bottle, snacks, umbrella, insect repellent and sunscreen, hat and sunglasses, GPS or map and compass.

Pack In, Pack Out 

Inspect your rest area for wrappers, trash or spilled food. Pack out all litter. Leave the site in better condition than when you arrived.

Stay On The Trail 

Use existing trails and rest sites. Walk single file in the middle of the trail.

Leave What You Find 

Preserve the past: examine rocks, plants, and historical artifacts.

Respect Wildlife 

Observe wildlife from a distance and never feed or handle wild animals. Control pets at all times.

Be Courteous 

Respect other visitors and be trail-friendly. Let the sounds of nature prevail.

Have Fun 

Wherever you go, enjoy the beauty of Marquette Co.
