When is the best time to visit Pictured Rocks? In terms of most scenic, less busy? Thanks! Carol Best

Answer

Hey Carol, good question! Really, it depends on what you would like to do. Spring and fall are much less busy with tourists but is too cold to go swimming. Fall is fantastic (our favorite month is September for Pictured Rocks) as we like to hike when it's not too hot and the fall colors are tremendous which is great for scenic views and photography.

Summer is the best time for swimming and camping but the bugs will be present during certain times.

I have also been there for snowmobiling and it is beautiful but limiting for hiking due to high levels of snowfall and cold temperatures.
