REVIEWS OF Da Yoopers Tourist Trap IN Michigan

Jessica Hatch

This little shop is adorable! If you are looking for Michigan gifts, this place is worth the visit. On top of the gift shop, they have a really cool rock shop as well. Yes, it does have a lot of the typical gift shop items, but it also has some great upper Michigan themed things. It's a nice place to stop when you need to stretch your legs. I didn't get any photos of the outdoor sculpture area, but it's worth walking through!

Chameleon Knight

Terrifying but amazing at the same time

Must stop. Kids need to listen to their music before hand if the don't know who they are.

pocahontas Reff

Lots of stuff to look at and buy, or if your handy to go home and make your own. Lol most items are on the pricey to extreme pricey side. But there are some nice items that's at affordable prices. The gift shop and rock shop employees are nice and I love that they don't bug you! There are football items, licence plates, wall decorations, Harley items, all kinds of coffee mugs, jewelry, assortment of items with your name on it (hopefully you don't have a rare name lol), toys, wildlife motifs. And hot coffee and cookies! In the summer there is a path to walk down to see more unique items.

Ryan Barba

Anyone passing through the Upper Peninsula must make a stop at this fine establishment. Great place to grab souvenirs while learning about Yooper customs.

J. Thomas

Nice place to stop by for a laugh and some nice UP souvenirs.

Troy Lawson

Haven't been here in quite a few years. Weather was great and we had a good laugh at some of the exhibits.

Jim J. Jewett

It is, as advertised, a tourist trap, with kitschy art. But several pieces have explanatory signs, either funny or educational -- I've been to a few museums that did less to place exhibits in context.

Shirley Tallman

Funny place to visit. Lots of great art work outside, great variety of gifts for all ages and there is something there for everyone. Rock shop has a great selection for everyone that has a desire and need to collect mineral specimens. Prices are reasonable.

Bernie Lalonde

Nice little place.... some unique gifts

Victoria Cartwright

Lots of really cool things in the yard for the kiddos. Great gift shop too!

A visit to Ishpeming isn't complete without a stop here and the rock shop!

Gerald Snapp

Great funny place love it

Jamie Lemke

This place is a MUST SEE if you're in the U.P. make sure you block out an hour or so so you'll have time to see everything. And I do believe Google has their winter hours in the summer they're open an hour later. Call first to make sure just to be safe.

I have lived in the U.P. most of my life and this was the first time I have visited Da Yooper Tourist Trap! What a hoot! I could have stayed longer! The gift shop has something for everyone. If I bought all the stickers I liked you wouldn't be able to see the vehicle! And the fun stuff outside! The giant trike was one of my favorites! I'll be back when I have more time! Put a smile on my face for miles!

Ashlei Bradley

Fun place to stop! The gift shops have something for everyone! They had some cute souvenirs and their prices were reasonable. On the outside they had lots of different displays to checkout. It’s a really interesting place to visit. I’ve never seen anything like it before. If you’ve got some time you should stop in.

Lindsay Miller

Amazing! Fun, cool little road side stop best merch to purchase for all ages! LOVE lit crystal shop!

Lorelei King

Da Yoopers Tourist Trap has a lot of character. It's a great place to learn about the history* of the area and spend ALL of your money on souvinirs. They have a unique rock/crystal shop and lots of UP themed items. They also have public bathrooms! *The history may possibly not be entirely accurate.

Melisa Rozanski

A fun spot with lots of great gifts / souvenirs! Even some cool gag gifts there too!

Fun, Fun, Fun! BEST place to stop in and visit, or spend the day when coming to Marquette County! They got something for everyone here at Da Yooper's Tourist Trap.

Delilah Crespo

It’s a quirky place to stop, chuckle, stretch your legs and buy some fun novelties

Josh Zapin

Worth the stop. So much fun.


Lots of cool stuff to see

Danny Ghanavati

Honestly pretty much everything here is overpriced. If I want a cool looking wallet I have to pay 15$ for it. Or if I want a bracelet I have to pay 13.99$ plus tax. And sure the stuff is cool to look at, but the place that saved it was the rock shop. The rock shop was absolutely amazing, the rocks looked so cool and the prices were good in their. Ahhh just loved looking at everything in their. The rock shops were it's at.

Jewles Livingston

Funny cute shop. Must visit if you are in the area. There are amusing displays outside with various yooper jobs. Inside there is a huge variety of souvenirs and gifts from serious to gag types. Unique fun store!!!

Kelly Brown

It's a creapy but fun experience

Jaci Brown

Kinda funny, kinda corny, but great tourist souvenirs. Would recommend everyone stop at least once!!!

Matt Preston

Very neat store. Large variety.

Jeffrey Letherer

Trapped at the trap

Richard Dobis

Always something new every time I go there. Can't come out of there without buying something.

Ali Khan

I was skeptical w business name " tourist trap". But I liked what I saw and prices were good (about < 1/2 price from California). End up buying about 6 minerals and fossils. Owner is nice. Repending for not buying one special piece (Little expensive, but still reasonably priced). Flying back home, after I had checked my language w airline, TSA kept my laugauge for two days. I guess they may not have seen heavy rocks (Hematite) packed in between cloths. I am glad i did not buy Metroit ( space-rock, about 10 times heavier than heaviest rock on earth). But they did not damage any thing, and every piece was repacked nicely and tagged "inspected".

Lorrie Dalton

Great place. Ready to go back

Calista Pinette

I almost didn't want to review this place because the rock shop has the best specimens at the best prices in the area. Worth the stop *every time*.

Joshua Peterson

Customer service is excellent all in all just a fun place to visit for adults and kids.

Patricia Sayger

Loved it

Marcy Colombini

Super cute place, lots of gifts for the family and yourself.

Michael Carmody

A "must stop" for all things tacky and hilarious. In one hour you can decipher the Yooper mystique. And where else can you stock up on " Roadkill Helper"?

Cindy M

This is always a great (kid friendly) stop to run around while in the area.


Sooo much fun!! Even for us yoopers!!! Love the friendly-helpful staff. The Yooper rendition of the "Christmas Story" major award is hysterical! (White longjohns tucked into a green swamper boot is ingenious). Always find something to laugh at and feel obligated to take it home.

Nova Belle

Fun little kittchy place to go mess around in. Isn't quite what it used to be if you went there years ago but still worth the stop. It's sort of a right of passage of the area.

Dawn Woods

Great place to stop for clean bathrooms, to stretch your legs and shop for unique gifts.

Tiffany M.

This place is such a fricken cliche and i absolutely adore it with all of my heart. They have the cliche giant lawn chair that you can sit in and take funny pictures in, the sculptures are fantastic, and the entire store is amazing. I always recommend to friends and family that they should stop here while in DA YOOP.

David Door

Fun place to visit and great gift shop

Robert Polkus

Fun store! A must see!

Jason Black

It is awesome

Jon Hodge

It's a really fun place to visit

Scott North

Typical tourist trap, but enjoyable. Lots of cool rocks, gifts, and funny scenes staged in the yard to look at. The Yooper Civl War was hilarious.

Wahmhoff Technologies

Wanted to stop since I was a kid, the lady in front of me in the check out line was rushed because the guy had stuff to do. Then I tried explaining how much the place meant to me when I was growing up, I might as well got eyes rolled at me... I was completely ignored. Needless to say I didn't purchase a thing. Pretty darn rude

Dusty Kwakkel

SO many things to look at! One could easily spend over an hour in either shop. The rock shop is amazing. Fair pricing

Eric Conley

If you happen to be in the area it's definitely worth stopping by. I wouldn't go out of my way to visit. Very unique. A bit funny, a bit creepy.

Weird place with great souvenirs

Stephen Polter

The best way to describe is "wild!". It's a trip! Hilarious all around! Great laughs, fun, and gifts. Love a place with a positive sense of humor and can laugh at selves in a healthy wholesome manner without getting all politically correct. Well worth the visit. Highly recommend

The rock shop has some great items. The tourist shop next to it has, as the name implies, lots of touristy UP stuff. Not worth a great detour, but a good stop if you are passing by.

What a fun time. Read some funny things and enjoy some UP "history".

Unagi Unagi

I love it!

Eric Rudberg

I stopped here to check out Big Gus (World's Largest Working Chainsaw) and Big Ernie (World's Largest Working Rifle). It's definitely worth the stop. Inside is what one would expect in a "tourist trap."

Matthew Bruster

great tourist attraction for shirts and stickers

All Ash

Exactly what I expected. A typical fun touristy shop.

Thomas Barclay

Love this place always stop and get girls before heading back to CT

Caleb Ward

Eh least they put tourist trap in the name. This place is just that, a trap. None of the scenery is that astounding and all the items in the store are generic and cheap. The clothes that are there are the most basic and stereotypical types of clothing you find in gift shops and such, i.e. Thin sweatshirts with Michigan on it but for $30, mugs, flashlights, etc. I guess the only real reason to give this a visit is to say you've seen the biggest chainsaw in the world.. but thats about it. Don't recommend this place to stop at. You can see most of it just by driving by it.

Liz good

great photo OP and fun

Charlie Given

Awesome gift shop and oddities very unique items.
