Drive the entire lakeshore drive and stop at all the places available. Every part of the drive was unbelievable.... The only downside was that it took me so long to get up to the UP to see it.

We were not aware this was a complete hiking trail destination with little or no access for handicap wheelchair/scooters! The overlook was beautiful, but we were unable to get to 99% of the shoreline.

Like miners castle, miners fall, some beaches which are on the western side of the park and drive east to see other areas up to Grand Maris.

A very picturesque part of the southern Lake Superior shoreline! We went in early April, and the park had very limited access, since not all the roads had yet been plowed. Indeed, some visitors had strayed and gotten stuck on the unplowed roads. Still, we were able to see a small portion of the park, and I found it to... More

Nice picturesque views and not a very strenuous hike. There is a large lookout center there to view the islands and Miners castle as well. One day I will take the boat ride!!
