Situated towards the north end of Misery Bay, Agate Beach is on the rockier side with fine sand overlain by rocks brought up by Lake Superior. As the name suggests, this is one of the prime beaches in the area to look for agates after storms or when the ice melts.
To get here from Houghton, head west downtown, through the yooper loop and west on M-26. When you reach Toivola, take a right onto Misery Bay Road. Continue 5.9 miles and turn right onto Agate Beach Road. In 1 mile take a right and continue on Agate Beach Road. Continue for 2 miles and turn left onto Agate Beach Road again. Drive until you reach Stanton Park and Lake Superior. Park Here.
Big thanks to Andrew Dubay for the pictures!
