Consists of upper and lower viewing decks. I preferred the upper to the lower. I felt it gave better photo opportunities. The upper deck is close to parking. The lower deck is a 1,000 feet from there with a shaded sloped walkway. Restrooms and tiny gift shop. Worth the trip!

The entire northern Michigan coastline is an amazing spectacle of mother nature. The rock formations which have occurred over many thousands of years are simply breath-taking and are a 'must-see'. If you are in northern Michigan, catch the boat ride - you won't regret it!

Nice to see. Either by water or platform viewing. Good view of grand Island. If your afraid of heights don't go near the edge. A simple walk to get to the viewing platform.

...a tour of Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. We recommend the Tour Operator in down town Munissing who will also get you close to the Chapel and Battleship Row.

..about the Michigan experience. Although this spot gets a lot of traffic the view of the cliffs with the clear water is truly stunning and worth the stop.

Miners Castle is always a great place to soak in the views! And the park service always keeps the parks very clean!

This is well worth the 1,000 foot hike from the pictured rocks main building. Miner's Castle Rock is a natural wonder and the sunset view is absolutely gorgeous, providing ample photo ops! This is a must see if you have never been here before.

Miners Castle was gorgeous and the views of Lake Superior are amazing! Good free, quick stop. Great photo opportunities. The walk is stroller and wheel chair accessible, parking is a short walk to the attraction.

Parking is close to the upper platform viewing area which provides great views of the lake and the rock cliffs that make this are so beautiful. There is a small ranger shop and washrooms. No charge.
