From Hancock: Drive north on US 41 toward Calumet. As you enter the outskirts of Calumet, look ahead for the prominent Keweenaw Visitor’s Bureau building on the right. When this building is in sight but before reaching it, turn left onto Agent Street. Agent Street becomes Swedetown Road after a slight bend. At the next T-intersection, turn right on Osceola Street. Look for tall Swedetown Recreation Area sign and driveway immediately on the left, opposite from a fishing pond.
