I just drove through it, didn't have much time. It was beautiful! Definitely worth a drive. Leave time to get out and enjoy the views--or take a picnic!

Great spot to bring a picnic and enjoy the outdoors. If the water is calm you can walk out on the pier. Playground equipment for the kiddos too. We love to take the drive thru the park and fin a quiet spot to watch the sunset over Lake Superior! Must go here if visiting Marquette area
