Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore encompasses the wild and beautiful shoreline along the south shore of Lake Superior between the communities of Munising and Grand Marais, Michigan. The lakeshore includes spectacular cliffs, sand dunes, pristine beaches, waterfalls, inland lakes, and the habitats of plants and animals. Stories and artifacts of human history involving early Native Americans, lake travel, lumbering, and other now abandoned industries are found throughout the lakeshore, including an 1874 light station.

With these vacancies, however, we are unable to fill program requests. For information, please contact:
