If you don't mind climbing lots of steps it is a good value. It was $1 per person for a nice view. There was also a gift shop with your usual tourist type souvenirs.

Pay a buck and go up for a nice view. An old school roadside attraction reminiscent of years gone pay. Pick a nice day and enjoy.

I don't know that I would drive out of my way for this one, but if you happen to be passing through, it's not a bad detour for $1 per person. After paying the admittance fee in the obligatory gift shop, you climb 107 somewhat...More

Well worth the $1, but not for faint of heart. The steps are steep and the ramp to the landing could be scary. Loved it, staff inside very friendly.

Castle Rock is cool stop while enroute to the Soo Locks. For $1, you climb to the top feel like you're on top of the world.

Beautiful view of the entire area and the Mackinaw Bridge. The steps to the top can be a challenge, but worth the effort. I don't recommend this if you are afraid of heights.

The view is fantastic. You go through a time capsule gift shop to purchase your admission. The climb is long, up lots of stairs, but you can travel at your own pace. The view is worth the climb.

My family visited here during our upper peninsula road trip. The climb is 200 steep steps, but there are places to rest. A really beautiful view at the top. They charge 1 dollar per person to climb. A couple of negatives are that the handrails...More

I think it's about 200 feet or so? Once you are at the top, you can see way over the treetops and over to Lake Michigan. If you are afraid of heights, you might not want to go up – there is a narrow catwalk that goes from... More
