This beach was incredible. Something we will never forget. The captain of the pictured rocks boat tour pointed it out and told the passengers how to get there - we were so happy we went. Sand is gorgeous, the water is so clean and the rocks were fun for the kids to jump off of. You're in the middle of... More

We didn't go to the rock lookout, but were at the beach. The beach is beautiful and there are rocks you can climb on to the West side of the beach. One day we were there and the lake was calm - it allowed you to jump off the rocks into the lake with little safety issues. We loved it... More

It is one of the most beautiful places you can go in Michigan! Great sights for families! The trails in the area are well kept, you should bring your camera.

Excellent view, easy to get to once you find it, a long road to get there, but then a short walk. 2 views, one stop.

Miners castle rock is a pretty cool sight, but the location itself lends a stunning view of the emerald greens to deep blues of Lake Superior and the variegated shades of rock in the cliffs. The top level overlook is easily accessible; the lower view of the rock involves stairs. Restrooms with running water on site, as well as a... More

Another lovely site at Pictured Rocks not to be missed! There is a visitor center here, too, with a ranger usually there to answer any questions.
