We camped for a week and I can not wait to go back. Awesome trails, Lake Superior, just an amazing place! We camped September 28th - Oct 3rd 2014. The first day was 70, sunny, and Lake Superior was as smooth as glass. At 4am a storm blew in... temps dropped to 43 with 20 mph winds and Lake Superior... More

The Lakeshore area is beautiful not only for its rock formations and shoreline, but also for the lovely waterfalls and hiking trails. We found the autumn foliage colors particularly beautiful and the crowds were much less in October. All of this and it is free admission! The rocks are best seen by boat with Pictured Rocks Cruises, and are best... More

Not very sunny on way out to picture rocks, but on the way back the sun broke through and we got some lovely pictures

Very very pretty lakeshore. Lots of minerals leaching out of the rock makes for some spectacular colors. Then you have waterfalls running over the edge. A must see if in munising.

The National Park facilities spread north from Munising and are just fantastic! Trails are well marked, and there are many!

We spent a few days in the Pictured Rocks area. Grand Marais on the east end is a nice little stop for lunch and resupply. West end is Munising, which is an excellent home base for visiting the area. The long hike along and above Lake Superior in Pictured Rocks is well worth the day expended. Nonstop views! Don't miss... More

On the shore of Lake Superior, Pictured Rocks is a natural woodland filled with beautiful hardwoods. When we were there, the fall colors were phenomenal. Every road we took seemed like a tunnel of vibrant reds and oranges. There are many waterfalls, easily accessible with a short hike, as well as beach access, and lightouses (we visited Au Sable Light).... More

I guess I took a wrong turn because the only interesting thing we saw at Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore were two ducks. Oh well. But you gotta love ducks!

Take the time to venture here. Then do the cruise...just great to get both perspectives. The water on top of PR looks like the Caribbean & we sure were not expecting that!
