Campers at Catchin’ Crickets Campground are only minutes away from all the wonderful things to see and do in the Munising area. Hikers will love the many trails in the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore and on Grand Island. Some trails are an easy stroll while others are a bit of a challenge. Go kayaking on Lake Supererior and see the Pictured Rocks from the water. Bring your own kayak, rent one in town, or take a kayak tour. There are several beautiful waterfalls near the campground for people to enjoy. Beach lovers will like sitting in the sand and getting their feet wet at the Sand Point Beach on Lake Superior.
