Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore
Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore is the first of the only four United States National Lakeshores. It is located on the southern shore of Lake Superior, known for its rugged coastline featuring colorful naturally sculpted rock formations and waterfalls.
The Lakeshore is located east of Munising and west of Grand Marais, Michigan.
There are no entrance fees charged at Pictured Rocks, nor are any fees charged for day-use.
Those rock formations aren't just pretty; they're dangerous. Falls from them have been fatal.
Tahquamenon Falls State Park, featuring one of the largest waterfalls east of the Mississippi, is a couple hours' drive to the east. The Yooper metropolis of Marquette is a similar distance to the west, along the lakeshore. Other notable State and National Parks/Lakeshores within a few hours' drive are Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, in the Northern Lower Peninsula, Mackinac Island, Isle Royale, Porcupine Mountains in the western Yoop and the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore in northwest Wisconsin.
