I visited this park in October, during fall foliage. I would definitely recommend coming here at that time. The colors on the trees are so beautiful. It’s hard to believe that it is Michigan. I believe that near here is one of the highest points in Michigan. (I could be wrong). But it’s worth it to come here. I recommend it.

Lots of waterfalls and amazing vistas to hike to. Beautiful fall color. Camping right on Lake Superior or deeper in the forests...backcountry campsites and remote cabins....something for everyone. Oversized vehicle parking wasn't much of a problem except at Summit Peak.

If you have time to visit only one place in Upper Peninsula, especially for famous fall color, this is the place to visit. Porcupine Mountains State Park is quite extensive and other attractions listed in TA including lake of the Clouds, Summit View tower, mirror lake etc are all part of this state park. There are many trails too and just need to collect info from visitor center. (yes, it is open in Covid era). We drove on 107th Engineers Memorial Highway, Silver City to Lake of the Clouds – 107 is part of highway M 26, M 64 from Houghton. This short drive follows the shore of Lake Superior, with strong waves hitting the highway and Lake of the Clouds is the most scenic spot in Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park. Try to go early because this beautiful view points overseeing the lake is very popular and it is the only place where they assigned attendance to collect park entry fee. Summit view tower is also a must go.

Great hike along the river rapids and waterfall. The Lake of the Clouds lookout is not to be missed. A highlight of our visit to the Upper Peninsula.

Went hiking here with a friend. Great views on the escarpment trail and lake of the clouds lookout. Lake Superior trail was nice too. Book lodging well in advance, cabins book up months in advance. There is a fee to enter the park. North Country passes through here as well. Worth a visit!
