Sand Point

One day faith will become sight. The things we cannot see in this world will become tremendously obvious in the next. That is our hope.

Sand Point.

Sand Point is a really pretty area just northeast of Munising, maybe 5 miles up the shore. Like the name suggests, its a point – a small peninsula. And sandy. Sand Point Road ends at a small gravel parking area, and a short trail through the woods ends at this beach. I really hadn’t expected something so nice when driving out here. I wasn’t even sure there was a beach; it just looked like there could be one on Google satellite. Speaking of Google, here is a map! And the shoreline viewer.

This beach is on the North side of the point, and there is a second beach on the South side which will be the next beach post. This is in the Hiawatha National Forest and Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. There are hiking trails from this point to Miner’s Rock, Pictured Rocks, and beyond. Scenery is absolutely beautiful. Definitely worth a stop if you have never been there. If I were a local, I’d probably head to Sand Point pretty often.

Fantastic.

In these pictures you can see Pictured Rocks in the background. You also see a narrow strip of sand that extends out into the water, which is not visible on Google maps. It’s pretty cool. The beach is clean, and so is the water. By all means, this is a fantastic spot.

    This was a beautiful beach! We rented a pontoon on Friday to get up close and personal with Pictured Rocks and it was amazing! This is the beach where Kid Rock filmed part of his video, Born Free. For anyone wanting to explore Pictured Rocks, I would highly suggest Seaburg’s Pontoons in Munising. So nice to be able to take your time and stop on the beaches to really check things out.

      Pontoon… fun! And yes, Kid Rock undoubtedly used my website to plan his Born Free music video. He hasn’t called to thank me yet, but I do have a speech prepared for when he does. Incredible song, incredible shoreline… incredible music video. Still waiting for my cut.
