This park is beautiful! We spent a day here and could have spent more and hope to go back in the fall to see this in full #pureMichigan color! It well marked with signs before each site.

We stopped here on to visit summit peak, lake of the clouds and the largest waterfall. We enjoyed our visit, mi does a great job with signage telling you where things are and how to get there. The trails are well maintained, the visitor center is very nice. Entry requires a mi recreation passport sticker for state parks.

My wife and I hiked many trails over two days in the park. We also enjoyed a short film at the visitors center, and the Lake of the Clouds overlook. I love hiking near and across mountain streams. Many trails here offers a multitude of such opportunities. They also offer some hiking through old growth forests. I loved these aspects... More

We visited the three main areas in the park: lake of the clouds, summit peak, and presque isle. They are all excellent. They all require walking and climbing stairs to view. But it is worth it. You will need several hours to view all of these. If you want to spend time hiking, you will need a couple of days

Unfortunately we ended up visiting in a rainstorm, which we hiked through anyway, even with the rain it was lovely, nice hike to the summit, trails well-maintained for the most part, the less-traveled ones were pretty muddy with all the rain, but the main hike to the summit was great. Nice little museum in the visitor center. This was a... More

Nature at its best, we camped here for two nights and we will go back. Lake Superior is beautiful and it offers a new face as the day progresses. The park has many well marked trails.... yes there are bugs but what did you expect.

There will be bugs that bite. The black flies in the spring and mosquitoes in the summer. Went on a few hikes, but the trails were super muddy due to all the rain. A lot of the trails were service roads that were rutted out from vehicles. I’m holding out hope that it’ll be better in the fall or winter,... More

The mountains are gorgeous! There are many different hiking trails for all levels of hiking. We did the Escarpment trail , East-West Trails and the Summit Trail. The East- West trail loop around the Presque Isle river was my favorite. The area is just beautiful and the falls were amazing. The visitor center at the Lake in the Clouds is... More

We had few hours before darkness after check in at the visitor center, and we decided the trio waterfalls is the target (instead of cloud lake overlook and mountain peak hike). We spent about two hours checking out Presque Isle River mouth area (discharge into Lake Superior) and walked the west river trail, then the east river trail. The trails... More
