It is worth stopping here if you are in Munising. The views of some of the Picture Rock National Lakesure are beautiful. The colors of the rocks and the water are stunning. It is a walk and there are stairs but it is a fairly easy access.

This is a great place to hike to and see limited views of Pictured Rocks. Also, this is one of the few dog-friendly places in the National Park.

Nice easy walk to platforms to see the rock formations. Ideally should take a cruise but if do not additional 3 hours and or monies, it is worth it. Also it is free.

Great spot with two overlooks to see the rock. Short walk from the parking lot. I was glad we drove here to see the rock formation from land as well as seeing it from the water (on Pictured Rocks Cruise).

After our Pictured Rocks Cruises boat tour was abruptly cancelled at boarding, we were disappointed. Thanks to Trip Advisor, we found out we could still access Pictured Rocks via driving. Castle Rock was stunning! It's a little bit of a hike, but we took in breathtaking views of this National Lakeshore. Best of all, it saved our trip. Do not... More

A small hike to Miner's Castle. The rock formation is cool. The view of Lake Superior is breathtaking! If you are a photographer..this is a must do on your list.

somehow this was not on my itinerary for pictured rocks, we only stumbled across it as we were at miners falls. the view is outstanding, the sun sets right on miners castle. there is ample parking, well maintained trails, restrooms and a little gift shop. also there is no fee at this Nat'l lakeshore, as opposed to sleeping bear dunes...

Hadn't planned on stopping at Miner's Castle, but took the wrong turn looking for Miner's Beach. Sure glad we took that wrong turn!!
