  • Pictured Rocks is a must see in Northern Michigan! Such beauty! If the water is too wavy to kayak, make sure you do the boat tours that go up and down the coastline. It's not even close to the same ex...  more »

  • Pictured rocks is rightly called so because it puts mother nature and gods creations into perspective. The huge cliffs run 15 miles from Munising and have a lot of different spectacular formations along. The best way to see this place is from a boat or kayaking but definitely on the water. The place has really high points as well as beach and overall you can hike from one end to another. Pets are allowed only on specific trails so make sure to check first.
  • Even though it rained when I was there and I decided not to camp, the park was very picturesque. The campgrounds looked good and the park itself has no admission fees unlike most other National Parks. The scenery was fantastic and the short hikes, though busy, were easy and mostly quiet. I would certainly go again in better weather.
  • One of the best sights in MI. The best way to see it is to rent a pontoon and go everywhere. Miners' falls is a must see; get a bit adventurous and walk down to the falls. Lake Superior's water is clear up to 20 feet plus and you can see the floor!
  • Something everyone should see at least once in their lifetime. The calm of the campsites, quiet sandy beaches. The kindness of the locals and the great little shops and small restaurants. The tranquil outdoors and the breathtaking waterfalls. It's simply beautiful!
  • A great place to go to take a look and see some beautiful scenery. The hiking is very minimal unless you go on a well marked trail that shows the mileage. We were somewhat disappointed that the best views are apparently only viewable from a boat tour(about $40 a person). We felt like that wasn't overly clear from our research that was done before our trip. Over all, still something cool to do if your in the area.
