Craig Lake State Park in Baraga County has added an alternative to the traditional camping experience with the completion of its new 20-foot Keewaydin Lake yurt.

Yurts are sturdy, round, tent-like structures that can be traced back 3,000 years.

The Michigan Department of Natural Resources says the new yurt is located one mile from the boat launch at the park located near Michigamme.

The yurt site includes a deck for wildlife viewing and an ADA-accessible ramp. It includes a twin-size bunk bed, full size bunk bed, a table and six chairs as well as a storage cabinet. It rents for $60 per night.
