Outdoor opportunities are enjoyed year-round at Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore.

Spring brings wildflowers to photograph and fish to catch. Summer offers picnicking, boating, hiking, and camping. Autumn brings a vibrant display of colors as hunters take to the north woods. Winter visitors enjoy cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, snowmobiling, and ice fishing.

The Pictured Rocks cliffs stretch for 15 miles from near Sand Point to beyond Spray Falls where they give way to the white sands of Twelvemile Beach. The Grand Sable Dunes rise high above Lake Superior near Grand Marais.

Visitors enjoy the sights and serenity of this beautiful area on Lake Superior in many different ways ... what's your favorite?
