Better logistically to stay in Munising area or Grand Marais

We are planning to visit Pictured Rocks in late August this summer for three nights. We enjoy long day hikes and have picked out from our hiking book 2 hikes (as a minimum ) that we would like to do, Chapel Loop (10 miles) and Pictured Rocks (13 miles). We are also considering the shipwreck tour. If we stay in Grand Marais will we spend too much time traveling to and from the other end of the park?

It's been three years since we were there, but I say DEFINTELY stay in Munising, but then I'm a bit biased as that's where we stayed. There are a number of beautiful waterfalls in Munising and of course Pictured Rocks. I'll defer to Tyme and other MI experts. They were fabulous in helping us plan our trip in the past. It's a beautiful area.

There is more to do in and around Munising. Grand Marais is a nice place, but one trip over there during your visit will probably be sufficient.

More options staying in Munising. If you enjoy hikes look at Grand Island a very short ferry ride from Munising.

Visit Grand marais to see the old Coast Guard station, pier, and to eat whitefish at the local bar..Best fish ever.

it'd be nice if the OP woulda checked back and given us some feedback...

that said, i wouldn't waste time with this thread anymore, unless they come back to the thread they created........which is highly doubtful....
