Straits State Park Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"The Mackinac Bridge is an impressive structure connecting the Upper and Lower Peninsulas of Michigan, and from this park one can admire it and the passing ship traf- fic from the beach, campsites, and a special viewing platform. The beach area is shallow and good for swimming, while anglers will prefer to go west of the big bridge for the best lake fishing. The modern campground is set back from the lake, and with 255 sites it has the bulk of them. Along the waterfront is another collection of 15 sites, which have no hookups. Sault Ste. Marie is another hour north of here. At 80 miles away, Tahquamenon Falls is a potential day trip, and local ferries connect to Mackinac Island."
