Great place for pictures.

Great view of the bridge. Had a nice building that gave all the history of the bridge. Bathrooms were nice and clean. Great place to have a picnic and hang out for a bit.

I was there when there were no good photo ops - it was raining. But I can attest that the facilities are top notch. Clean, smooth, well-marked parking for any size of vehicle. Plenty of benches and picnic spots, clean and spacious rest rooms, and it is FREE! But the best part is the angles and views of the Mighty... More

This spacious park is located on the south shoreline of the UP right next to the toll booths for the Mackinac Bridge. It has lots of parking, picnic tables, benches & lots of open grass and a dog run as well. The serenity in the evenings is immeasurable. If you are visiting in the summer you might consider daytime visit... More

This free park is very close to the Mackinac Bridge. You can see cars going over. You can also wade in the water. Lots of parking.

Nothing much to see is a good place to go with company and look the nature but you could get bored easily.

Really nice small park just before the bridge off I-75. On a clear day has closeup views of the bridge and passing boats (freighters, sailboats, fishing boats, etc.).

This is a must see on your trip up north of the Mighty Mac. This beautiful park provides outdoor picnic table, pavillions,benches, and a gorgeous visitor center with restrooms and interpretive panels about the history of the area and the building of the bridge. Take a break from driving and enjoy a picnic lunch with a picturesque view.

The park is easy to find and has a decent size parking lot with access to the park. When we went in October it looked like they had closed the west side of the park for the season, and the museum in the east side of the park was closed. Good view of the Bridge and a nice place to... More
