When you drive off the main road, you wonder what could be ahead as it is a field area. The drive into the park tells you this is going to be special. The view is worth the drive! So peaceful and quiet!

Amazing view's. Had fun driving into the area with all the tree's and tree tunnel. Hiked the loop trail, it was easy and only took about an hour.

It may be a little hard to find but the view...both out across the bay and straight down...is, in the rarely appropriate use of the word...awesome.

Always a nice place to visit this view. A quiet place to reflect. Sometimes crowded on the overlook ramp and makes it difficult to take photos. Go early in the day.

This is a great place to get out and do some hiking. Lots of roots...careful! But absolutely beautiful views!

We didn't get to spend as much time as we would've liked due to inclement weather. Nice paths and overlooks. We will be back next time we visit, and will spend more time!

A nice state park with an overlook that allows you to see the bay and out into the lake. A lot of tree cover makes it cooler than the surrounding area. A great photo op and place the chill

Great view of the bluff and the water; of note, very uneven steps and walkway - so caution for those who are unsteady when walking.

It's All Lake Michigan. I would think someone from Wisconsin would KNOW that.

To get to the best (highest) viewing area there are steps and the terrain is a little rough. However, the view from the lower, more even ground is beautiful.
