Several landmarks in Dickinson County highlight pieces of history related to the area. Quite a few abandoned iron ore mine sites in the area are open to the public and provide a fascinating glimpse into the past. One of the most interesting remnants of the mining era is the Cornish Pumping Engine, the largest steam engine ever built in North America. The 50-foot-high pump, which may be visited in Iron Mountain, was used to remove water from the Chapin Mine, the area's most productive iron mine. Another landmark in Dickinson County is the Pine Mountain Ski Jump, near Iron Mountain. Well-known for its annual mid-February tournaments, Pine Mountain is, at 932 feet, the longest ski jump in the world.
The Bush Lake area also offers a 'world of outside recreation.' There are an unlimited, amazing number of outside activities that you could participate in; from hiking, to fishing, to golfing, to swimming. Several state campgrounds (Carney Lake, VanRiper, and Bewabic), roadside parks/wildlife areas, and other nearby county and city parks are within close driving distance from Bush Lake.
Some of the most magnificent sights to encounter in the area are the mighty waterfalls. In Dickinson County alone, within a 30 mile radius, there are (5) breathtaking waterfalls, and also closeby in the Crystal Falls area, as many as (8) magestic waterfalls to take in. The voice of the water will never leave you; it is the underlying theme of the area.
