USDA Forest Service

Bring the family and check out Grand Island National Recreation Area! Grand Island is located in Lake Superior, about one-half mile from the mainland community of Munising, Michigan. Munising is about 43 miles from Marquette and 55 miles from Manistique. Grand Island is the perfect place to spend a day or even just a few hours biking and exploring. The island’s breathtaking overlooks, pristine sandy beaches, fascinating cultural sites, deep hard woods, and inland lakes make it an exciting and secluded destination. Visitors can get to the island via passenger ferry or private watercraft. Some campsites are conveniently located for kayakers. The ferry departs from Grand Island Landing on the mainland, located on M-28 about 2.5 miles west of the Munising's blinking light. Look for the Grand Island National Recreation Area signs.

Lake Superior Paradise

Excellent back pack camping. No electricity, no plumbing.. just nature. I suggest Murray Bay group site. Excellent location with your own small beach. Bring a bike for travel, see all the lakes, greenery and you must visit waterfall beach. Great camper toilets, but bring TP.

Love this island, 3rd year back!
