Like all beautiful locations in Michigan, this gorgeous site is easy to miss even for those searching for it. The signage simply states "scenic overlook". If driving north on M22, the understated parking lot will be on your left. There is a fairly small gravel...More

This is a great stop to see a spectacular view with very little effort. The water is sparkly and clear and you can see a nice long view of the coastline. Highly recommend.

Stay on the main deck or climb the steps to the highest point, either way, any season, the view is breath taking!

Sparkling water and beautiful view anytime of year. Climb up the well-built wooden steps for an even more spectacular vista.

The most breathtaking views we saw! Just unbelievable. The walk to the top of the stairs is so worth it. (They are shallow stairs, so it helps) We loved it.

We stop here every time we pass through. Don't miss this. Beautiful. The water sparkles like diamonds and you can walk high up a lookout platform if you like. Bathrooms available also.

A wonderful view of Lake Michigan from a high bluff. This is a rest area with lavs (non-flush) and picnic tables. We love to come here on a nice day to have our mid-day meal.

Nice, quiet, and the views are terrific. We drove up to catch the sunset and were NOT disappointed. There is a bit of a climb to the top of the area to get the best view but, very worth it.

Magnificent vistas from high up on the bluff overlooking the coastline and way out into Lake Michigan. It`s a great place to observe lake going vessels, hear the sound of the surf and especially to catch a stellar sunset. It`s an easy and safe pull...More

The overlook is very high on the bluff. I don't believe there is a beach or a safe way to climb down the bluff.
