  • Went snowshoeing on island ! Very fun!!! The road is closed for winter so can go right on the road. Can see black rocks covered in snow.  more »
  • Always beautiful. If you aren't from here take a walk or drive around but make sure you get out and look at the cliffs.  more »
  • What a lovely park! Somewhat reminiscent of Stanley Park in Vancouver (but without the totem poles). Hiking trails, biking trails, a breakwater, picnic areas, views of the Great Lakes ships in the har...  more »

  • This is a wonderful area for a causal drive, walk, run, or hike, you can swim off the rocks, or from the sandy beach, surf, picnic, beautiful, breathtaking, photo shots avail all over. The famous black rocks that are carbon dated thousands + years old. There are two beautiful pavilions avail for use for casual and formal affairs. Boat docks for privately owned boats, and a wildlife marsh with wooden walkways that are raised in some areas to see an assortment of wild birds native to the area, beaver. (There is a huge dam) and some look out points through out the island and marsh area.
  • Beautiful views of lake Superior! Perfect spot for a drive, a walk, or a jog. Okay for strollers, and there is plenty of picnicking space. The parking lot has plenty of room for large groups, and biking is also popular at the park. There is a great view of the lighthouse from the beach area, which is quite Rocky.
  • Very nice. Check out when the park is closed to cars and only opened for bikes. Seems small but there is a lot to do. The bike trail is fantastic.
  • Beautiful place to walk the trails, see the lake, dip your toes in the water, skip rocks, have a picnic, listen to the waves. It's close to town too so you do t have to go far to enjoy a bit of the UP and Lake Superior.
  • I thought it was really nice. It's more of an exploratory Park. Great views from the long wave breaker made of concrete and rocks. Beautiful Bluff views as you drive around the park. Usually one side always has crashing waves with big winds. Did see a couple of deer which they asked you not to feed them.
