"Iron River - A Good Place to Get Away From It All!" Iron River by klarson

Iron River Travel Guide: 5 reviews and 8 photos

I go up to Iron River quite frequently, as my mother lives there. She has a nice log cabin on Sunset Lake just a bit out of town. I enjoy going there, especially in the summer. It gets quite cold in the winter, but the snow is usually very white and pretty.

Over the years, there have been efforts to consolidate Iron River with the surrounding communities. First, the school districts of Stambaugh, Iron River, Gaastra, and Caspian were consolidated back in the 70's. Then, more recently, the town of Stambaugh was merged into Iron River, so now Iron River is larger, and Stambaugh is no more.

There is lots to do in and around Iron River if you like the great outdoors. There are plenty of streams and lakes for fishing, and hunting deer and partridge is popular in the fall.
