30 degrees and gloomy November day but still an incredible experience. Definitely want to come back in the summer and rent Kayaks to really see more of Picture Rocks in nicer weather and from the water.

After we looked over the edge and gasp at the beauty...we just stayed on the overlook to enjoy watching other people's reactions when they looked over for the first time. It reminded us of the gasps when we visited the Grand Canyon! OH MY -...More

I would definitely recommend a visit to Miners Castle for anyone visiting or passing through the Munising area. It is very easy to find; at the end of Miners' Castle Rd off of H58. There is a spectacular view from the main viewing platform by...More

Pictured Rocks, the islands are awesome but very remote. Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore is drivable, short hikes beautiful and well worth the trip!
