Castle Rock, a unique geological formation, is a limestone stack created by erosion. It is considered to be one of the oldest lookouts of the area and was known as "Pontiac Lookout" by the Ojibway tribe. It has been developed and is a popular seasonal tourist attraction, complete with a staircase to the top, and a gift shop. At the base of the Rock a statue of Paul Bunyan and his side kick, Babe the Blue Ox, greet the visitor. An admission fee is charged.
It is located on the west side of I-75, 3 miles north of the Mackinac Bridge. A climb to the top offers an outstanding and inspiring panorama of the area.
