We didn't enjoy this part of our Munising vacation, mostly because we were told reservations for the bus tour were not required when I called about a week prior to our visit and it was sold out when we got there.
My wife, son, and I walked across the frozen bay from Sand Point to Grand Island. The walk was around a mile to the island and was fairly hard walking because of the snow on the ice. It was all worth it when we got there. The ice formations are magnificent! I would expect to spend several hours at the... 更多
We backpacked/camped to a beautiful campsite on Trout Bay about 2 miles from the boat dock. Since some of the sites are non-reservable, it felt like a race to get to an unoccupied spot.

Very rustic but really nice visit. We had our bikes with us and can be a tough ride but very enjoyable. Saw a Bald Eagle fly right in front of us with food in it's mouth and saw it feeding it's young. First time seeing a baby eagle.

We were worried about mosquitos after reading other reviews, luckily... 更多

We were a group of six with moderate experience in ultralight back packing. To start the island is only accessible via boat or kayak, we took the ferry... 更多
My friend and I were looking for a place to ride bikes and the hotel recommended Grand Island. Unfortunately we got a late start and only had from 5-6pm to ride. The little we were able to see was great. The trail was perfect for riding and the scenery amazing. Aside from the few other riders who were clueless to... 更多
