You cannot have a better view of the Bridge.
Park is really nice, full of flowers(even in October).
I was there twice. The first time it was part of the Bridge Tour, but weather screwed us up, so there was …no visible bridge!
Second time was much better. Beautiful sun, almost no clouds. Beside of bridge, you can see great sunset and some birds(geese, ducks and cormorants).
I strongly recommend this place. Bring your camera or phone!

I was looking for a different spot for my wife to photograph the straits and the Bridge. This is a beautiful park with amazing views. There is some historical markers there also. It was February and 11 degrees but still beautiful. I can only imagine what it would look like in the summer.

Easy to drive to, great view of the bridge and lots of water access to rock hunt. We spent an hour searching for interesting rocks and beach glass. There's no tables for picnic if that's what you are looking for and to access the water you do need to climb down giant chunks of cement so be careful if you are fragile.

My husband and I finally got to cross over the Mackinac Bridge into the Upper Peninsula during our most recent visit to Michigan. The bridge is an amazing architectural feat and it was such a cool experience to travel across all 5 miles of it. After crossing the bridge and pulling away from the toll booth, you'll see a sign for a Bridge Viewing Spot. If you follow the signs, they will lead you to Bridge View Park. It's a great spot to view the Mackinac Bridge and take pictures. There's a little information center with restrooms, as well as a history of the inception and building of the bridge. Worth a look-see!!!

The view of the bridge was spectacular!! Very peaceful with lots of places to sit and just unwind ! The sea gulls were singing the songs of the strait.

If a breathtaking view of the Mackinac Bridge is something that you’re looking for this is the place to go! No matter what the weather is the view is amazing. Nice area to just take in the up north Michigan breezes and have a feeling of calmness come over you. A favorite spot when ever we go to the bridge. A must do for sure!

Beautiful park with lots of nice landscaping and flowers. Plenty of benches to sit and relax on. Walk down by the water and get your feet wet. Most of all, best picture spot for photos of the bridge. Make sure to stop here.

Right by the bridge on the St. Ignace side. You can see the bridge from all over and it is, after all, a bridge, but the view from here is quite nice and the park is a nice place to hang. Water access for a little bit of swimming. A visitor center with nice bathrooms and an historical presentation for reading. LOVE the tile floor in the visitor center with the map of the Great Lakes laid in tile.
