Our family of 5 LOVED being there. Hiking around and looking at the fabulous scenery laid out before you. They have a beach where the kids enjoyed playing at despite the water being pretty cold.

I enjoyed the day trips and how close to Superior it is. Right now there is a lot of construction due to flooding from last year. Getting to some parts of the photo opportunity is not what I would consider handicap accessible. But if you can move about, so worth it.
