  • Excellent visit, recommend to all. Had planned this trip for months and very pleased with our experience. We rented a pontoon boat and loaded up a handful of toddlers and coolers for a long day trip.....  more

  • Boat tour was cancelled due to wind and rain so we happened upon this area trying to see the sandstone colored cliffs. The Pictured Rocks Cliff area was a great spot. Easy walk to the high overlook...

  • Absolutely beautiful. When you're here make sure you take the boat tour to fully appreciate the beauty of the cliffs. In the park itself, the trails are very nice, taking you to multiple waterfalls and scenic views. I definitely recommend the trail to the Grand Sable Dunes, the view was beautiful. Negatives: both visitor centers were closed and apparently in need of renovation. Prepare yourself appropriately for the bugs, especially the Sable flies.
  • It's immaculate up here. One thing I love about the Upper Peninsula is that there's so many cool and small towns, and in between it's just nothing. you start in St. Ignace and have to drive a couple hours to Pictured Rocks but it's great! This is one of my favorite national nature places to visit. I hope one day it'll become a national park because it surely deserves that final titled, even if it's still being funded by the federal government anyway. It's great here!
