You stated that Isle Royale is Michigan's only National Park, but what about Pictured Rocks and Ottawa?


Isle Royale National Park was designated by Congress in 1940.

Congress designated Pictured Rocks the first National Lakeshore in the United States in 1966.

The Ottawa National Forest is a national forest that covers 993,010 acres in the Upper Peninsula from Lake Superior to the Wisconsin border.

The National Park Services has over 11 designations in the NPS system. All have equal legal standing.
