Mackinac Island State Park reviews
We walked one morning in the park and it was beautiful! Lots of types of trees not found in our state. I would recommend doing this early in the day before it gets too hot. more »
We flew our small plane to KMCD. Very small and friendly airport. Called ahead for horse taxi and they met us there as we arrived. Reasonable taxi prices. Beautiful and scenic park. more »
This Park is one of the most beautiful parks in all of Michigan. My family and I visited this park when we stayed on the island a few nights and it was not only fun but also very relaxing. One of my favorite parts of the park is how the swing sets look out onto the lake and onto Mackinac Bridge. I would definitely recommend visiting here.
We come here every August to see our granddaughter perform with the Girl Scout Color Guard. The history is all around the island and the views of the lake and Mackinaw Bridge are awesome. We have stayed in several B & B s and the Inns. We have never had a disappointment with our lodging. Take a private carriage tour, it's the best. The restaurants are many and the food is remarkable.
