Munising Travel Guide
Welcome to Munising!
Located on the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, Munising rests on the largest freshwater lake in the world, Lake Superior. This lake includes Grand Island National Recreation Area, which is also part of Hiawatha National Forest. Round Island and Point Iroquois Lighthouses are historic lighthouses found in this forest, where visitors can climb to the top of each tower for panoramic views of the surrounding areas. Also, outdoor activities include boating, fishing, camping and kayaking. Due to the lake's size and weather conditions, shipwrecks were commonplace on Lake Superior between the 1800s and the early 1900s. Both narrated cruises and guided scuba dive tours are offered to see shipwreck sites. The Munising area boasts over 15 waterfalls and visitors can enjoy hikes and walks to see and photograph them. While winter activities in Munising include snowmobiling, skiing and ice climbing, summer outdoor opportunities vary from hiking to boating, swimming and canoeing in Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore.
