Munising Falls Visitor Center, on the park's west end near Munising and the Grand Sable Visitor Center near Grand Marais on the park's east end are handicap accessible. The 800-foot trail to Munising Falls is paved, although slightly uphill.

Each of the park's three drive-in campgrounds has at least one wheelchair accessible campsite. Campsites include an extended picnic table, boardwalk, pedestal fire grate, and close proximity to rest rooms. For more information on reserving one of these campsites, please go to the Camping page.

Holders of an America the Beautiful Senior Pass (62 and older) and America the Beautiful Access Pass (disabled) receive a 50% discount on the campground user fee.

Trails to all overlooks at Miners Castle are paved. The first 100 yards of the level trail lead to two accessible overlooks of the cliffs and Miners Castle. CAUTION! The trail to the lower overlook includes stairs and a very steep decline.

Miners Beach has a wheelchair accessible boardwalk that leads from the parking lot to the staircase down to the beach. From the top of the staircase there is a beautiful view of Lake Superior. Use caution as the boardwalk can get sandy and slippery.

The half-mile accessible boardwalk at the Sand Point Marsh Trail is a delight to nature lovers. The trail meanders through cattail marsh, open bog, spruce-tamarack swamp, and white cedar wetlands.

Also at Sand Point, the beach parking area and sidewalks are paved. One picnic table is fully accessible with a pedestal fire grate. A section of boardwalk enables visitors to go part of the way to the Lake Superior shoreline.

The Superior Overlook viewing platform (located along H-58 between Twelvemile and Hurricane Campgrounds) is wheelchair accessible.

The Log Slide overlook viewing platform is currently closed due to storm damage.

A Braille introduction to the park pamphlet is available by request at the Munising Falls Visitor Center, or for download in a Braille Ready Format: PIRO Braille_1.BRF File
