Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore is a U.S. National Lakeshore on the shore of Lake Superior in the Upper Peninsula. It extends for 42 miles (67 km) along the shore and covers 73,236 acres (318 km²). The park offers spectacular scenery of the hilly shoreline between Munising, Michigan and Grand Marais, Michigan, with natural arches, waterfalls, and sand dunes.
The name "Pictured Rocks" comes from the 15 miles (24 km) of colorful sandstone cliffs northeast of Munising. The cliffs are up to 200 feet (60 m) above lake level and have been naturally sculptured into shallow caves, arches, formations that resemble castle turrets, and human profiles, among others. Near Munising, visitors also can view Grand Island, most of which is included in the Grand Island National Recreation Area and is preserved separately.
