Few people visit this old forgotten boathouse with a link to our maritime past. Northeast of Munising past the Munising Falls visitors center is the former Sand Point Lifesaving Station. It is now used as offices and living space for the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. I think a lot of visitors head out that way and just figure they are only buildings used by the rangers.
The boathouse used by the Lifesaving Service has been somewhat restored and houses an old lifesaving boat and equipment used by the men who were stationed there. When I visited the doors were open and people were welcomed to tour the inside and read the signs explaining all the items contained within.
It is a great little place to visit especially if it is late in the evening. You can get a good view of the sun setting. Across the water is Grand Island and you can get a view of the East Channel Lighthouse.
