My husband and I went cross country skiing here in January, and thought the park was pretty in the winter. We decided to go for a walk here this summer. While cool for August, we loved the view and peacefulness of the park. You could bring a football and a picnic lunch and lounge and explore all day here!

Beautiful park with a lovely drive along the shore. Great for walking, biking and watching the Taconite Loader across the small bay. When Superior is angry this is a place to understand the power of the water. On a lovely day, it is a photographer's delight.

Neat park right in the city of Marquette. It's a 2 mile loop around the park. The park is closed on certain days at certain times to automobiles to allow just foot traffic and bicycles. There is one spot that is known as the Blackrocks where you can jump about 10-15 feet into Lake Superior.

Only a short drive from downtown Marquette, but feels like you're really away from everything. You can walk to the lighthouse when the weather is nice. The long rocky path is longer than it looks. Took about 20 minutes to make it all the way down. The main road (Peter White Dr.) circles the park and there are plenty of... More

This is a beautiful place. It is free to visit and could spend all day there. Very peaceful and quiet. The rocks are fun to walk on and great place for pictures. Next time we are jumping off black rock for sure as we didn't have our towels with us this last time. Family fun and is a must.

Beautiful park - near the ore loading site which is really cool to watch. One can walk out to the lighthouse. Water is shallow enough for swimming (but cold!).

Beautiful, easy to get to, and free entrance. Nice day trip destination within minutes of downtown and the campus. Walk,run, ride your bike or canoe. It's worth it.

Beautiful park. There's a popular spot on the north end of the park to jump off a small cliff into Lake Superior. The water is clear and inviting. It was fun to watch others, but especially my husband, jumping into the cold water. It was also fun just to walk along the rocks and enjoy the beautiful view.

The park does not live up to the website. We had a few hours to kill and we were going to spend it at the park, but there really wasn't anything to do even for the kids. And there were so many parks very close by that we ended up going to a different park where they could swim and... More

This was a beautiful park to relax for a while.   Nice view of Lake Superior.  There were plenty of hikers and bikers while we were they're. We were lucky and watched a cargo ship come into port.  Like many others, we stayed and watched while the ship was loaded with cargo.  Pretty fascinating for those of us that don't see... More
