This little island is such a gem! (not a hidden one whatsoever though) Everything about the island is great. The bike ride around the periphery, the rustic charm like none other, food etc.

A must see! Over eighty percent of Mackinac Island is State Park property, and most of this parkland remains in its natural condition to be enjoyed. It has a great variety of historic and natural resources. I observed historic landmarks, breathtaking vistas, spectacular rock formations,...More

Absolutely. I think it’s $8 but check the ferry companies website for pricing. If you’re taking multiple bikes, I check all the companies for the best price. Have fun!

Hello, There are full restrooms at Arch Rock and British Landing, and a pit toilet up at Fort Holmes. Starting in 2019 a restroom and shelter building will be built near Fort Mackinac. I hope this helps - thank you!
