  • We just happened to drive by and thought we would check it out. Nice gift store and only $1 charge to climb to the top of Castle Rock. I didn't realize I was so out of shape until I went on this walk!...  more »
  • I've been coming here since I was a kid, and it's still awesome. It's still only $1 to go up to Castle Rock too. This time I got to introduce my daughter and husband to this Michigan classic. The stai...  more »
  • This was a great view from high above the water and to see what nature can make without man and concrete. A lot of steps but not steep and well woth the time to enjoy the area.

  • This is the type of old-fashioned, billboard advertised, side-of-the-highway attraction that is sadly disappearing from the American landscape. For the very reasonable fee of $1, you get to climb Castle Rock - an old Native American lookout that is about 200 feet in the air. The climb can be taxing and I certainly would not advise the elderly or those in poor physical condition to try it. Once you've climbed to the top of the stairs, you are presented with a panoramic view of UP. You can see Lake Huron, the Mackinac Bridge, St. Ignace, and lots and lots of beautiful tree cover. There is a pay-per-use old school telescope on top, so bring change if you're interested. There's a lovely gift shop with everything from postcards to shirts, and all the little goodies in between that these places specialize in. Very friendly staff. Overall, highly recommended, given the affordable entrance fee, the friendly staff, and the million dollar views!
  • This was fun. Only cost $1 to go to the top viewing spot. Really nice area.
  • The view from the top is gorgeous. The actual viewing area at the top could be polished up a bit to look nicer. The climb isn't too bad. Just carry a bottle of water with you. Especially if it's summertime.
  • Great views only costs a dollar. a lot os steps to get to the top.
  • Great view from the top of castle rock, definitely worth the climb! Price to climb is very cheap ($1 when I went) and is worth every penny. Do beware that there are a decent amount of stairs to climb, but there are rest areas in between sets.
