A favorite camping spot for of many due to its beautiful views of Lac Le Belle and Lake Superior, Mount Houghton is relatively isolated and makes for an incredible day trip, whether you decide to camp or not. As with most of the higher elevation areas in this site, it reaches peak awesomeness in the fall when the leaves turn.
To get here, head north on the lift bridge and take US-41 past Delaware. Right before you get to the small town of Mandan, take a right onto Mandan Road. Follow this main road for 3.75 miles and take a right. Follow this road for 3300 feet and take another right. Follow this road for about 2000 feet and you'll get to a parking area with a gate. Park here and hike the rest of the way up by foot (about a mile hike).
