Loved exploring the park although not a hiker. Had a perfect autumn weekend with spectacular weather and picture perfect views at the Lake of the Clouds and Summit's Peak. Well maintained scenic areas with restrooms. Nonesuch Falls and Nonesuch Mine not marked by road - really had to hunt for it. Glad we found it!! Enjoyed everything we were able... More

This park has beautiful scenery at any time, but with the appearance of fall colors it is outstanding. We drove up to to view Lake of the Clouds and it is indescribably beautiful. The panoramic view is stunning. This viewing area is completely accessible. The restrooms are lacking in soap for hand washing, but this is a primitive park. The... More

What a pleasant detour. The colors were near peak. This was an easy drive and the walk to the viewing platforms were great for families and those with minimal disability. It's twin is Jordan pond at Acadia national park. However it's a moderate rocky hike up to the bubble mountains. Lake of the clouds makes good competition especially in the... More

Beautiful a great place to hike or take a slow drive. The weather was a bit wet - which no one can control. But, worth seeing. We are looking forward to coming back.

We had a beautiful lake view spot and thoroughly enjoyed exploring the waterfalls, Lake of the Clouds and several other awesome places within the park. We arrived late at night and after a long day of driving, it was so nice to pull up to our site and see an orange traffic cone out in front marking our site. There... More

Went to the end of the road and found Lake of the Clouds, what a beautiful view with an easy hike from the parking lot to the top of the rock.

For anyone traveling through the Upper Peninsula, the Porcupine Mountains are well worth a stop. A helpful park employee pointed us toward the Lake of the Clouds, Summit Peak and especially the Union Mine Interpretive Trail, which was a lovely walk past five waterfalls with a history lesson in area mining along the way. The Presque Isle waterfalls are impressive... More

Very pretty area, the Presque River waterfall is worth every step to see it. The path and steps are in great condition.

We spent 3 days in the area. The park is beautiful and many of the surrounding waterfalls are also state parks so if you'll be there a couple days best to get annual park sticker since office doesn't open early you'll get out on trails earlier. Beware, Read maps carefully or talk to rangers, trails are longer than you think.... More
