The view of the bridge from the park is really great. The water was bit cold . You can spend around 30-60 minutes here.

Located on the St. Ignace side in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, the view is fantastic of the Straits between Lake Michigan and Lake Huron. The story of the bridge is well told in the visitors center.

Great view of the bridge. Nice memorial to those who died building it. Nice, new visitor center building (it wasn't staffed during our visit) with clean restrooms. Continuous historical film playing as well as information boards giving the history of the straits and bridge construction....More

Great place to view the bridge. Lots of seagulls and geese, so watch where you step. Easy to access.

There is plenty of grassy area for playing and taking pictures. In bad weather there is a very nice building with large windows and nice bathrooms. Also a video of the history of the bridge and lots of plaques you can read.

Perfect photo spot. There are many good spots along the shoreline to get a great shot of the Bridge. Great picnic spot to watch the freighters and enjoy the day. Clean bathrooms and ample parking.

There are no grills in Bridge View Park however there is a roadside park a couple of miles to the west which has grills and picnic tables and also overlooks Lake Michigan and the bridge.
