On this one-of-a kind tour of the Picture Rocks, we do the heavy lifting. All you have to do is show up, enjoy some down-home cooking, and take in the view.

P.S. We’ve always cared a whole lot about safety and cleanliness, but we’ve heightened our precautions even more this season.

Clean. Safe. Unforgettably Fun.


Grand Island stretches north for 8 miles, from its southpoint at Williams Landing in Munising Bay to the north end at North Point. Only three miles across at its widest point, Grand lsland offers 35 miles of shoreline, encompassing over 13,500 acres of dense woodland, including several lakes. Rapid-flowing streams cut through the rugged hills, and massive 300 foot wave-cut sandstone cliffs. Beaches of fine sand, winter ice caves and historic buildings and artifacts dating back as far as 2,000 BC are just a few of its highlights. Archeological investigations indicate that Grand Island has been inhabited for at least 3,300 years. In the 1660’s, when the explorer priests arrived from France, the Ojibwa culture on Grand Island was already thriving.

Located only ½ mile offshore from Munising this island is 9 miles long and up to 3 miles wide with many beaches, sea caves, arches, cliffs, and wildlife abounds. Same geology as the Pictured Rocks.  The first Settlers came to the Island in the early 1800’s when trading for furs was the prime industry. Evidence of this activity is still apparent there. The first permanent settlers arrived in 1846, setting up a trading post there to trade with the Ojibway Indians.
