This is one of the neatest natural wonders in the UP. I've taken the cruise in June and in October and it was beautiful both times. I love being on the water and the view is just gorgeous. We got many great pictures and the artist of our group brought back at least 4 sketches of the fall colors and... More

I first visited Miner's Castle my first time driving through the UP in the summer of 2013. I had seen Pictured Rocks advertised and my google searches showed that Miner's Castle was the only rock formation you can drive to. Well it is DEFINITELY worth the drive. The views of the rock are stunning, and we were there on a... More

The rock cliffs at the lakeshore were beautiful. Had to get used to saying "lakeshore" vs "sea shore' (living in Calif). The UP has so much for outdoor activity, not like the central valley of Calif.

Amazing rock color only to be seen via water. Well worth the money. One suggestion, color would be better afternoon when the sun shines on it as it is on the eastern side. Very beautiful area, especially in the fall. Color was peak.

We stopped on Halloween Oct 31. It had snowed and the temperatures dropped to around 30 so we decided to do a little sightseeing while driving around the lake on vacation. The view of Lake Superior was excellent. The waves crashing on the rocks and at Miners Beach the view was just as beautiful! There was a viewing platform and... More

Because the boat tours were cancelled for three days because of strong winds, we were pleased that we could get views of Miners Castle from the land. We enjoyed the short walk for a variety of views.

Fall colors all over were fantastic. We also went to lighthouses, museum, antique shop, waterfalls and glass bottom boat tour. Like all of them.

America's park lands are second to none and Miners Castle Rock puts visitors up close to some stunning geological features. Access is very easy, with simple barrier-free access to the upper viewing areas. There are some stairs at the end of a well maintained path to the top of the rock, but it is a fairly easy walk and definitely... More

it was freezing cold when we arrived but the view was worth fighting the elements! each viewing platform had something different to offer so don't skip out on the different spots. Was just passing through the area but could have easily stayed a day or two! Hope to return to area in the future

This is one of many great places to see for free in the Munising area. We got a lot of good information and maps to all of the waterfalls from a visit to Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore Hiawatha National Forest Interagency Visitor Center 906-387-3700 400 East Munising Avenue, junction of state highway M-28 and county road H-58 in Munising.
