The Kiwanis Picnic Shelter
Once you've had your fair share of brave heart-ed cliff diving at Black Rocks which is just past the Presque Isle scenic look-out and the grave site of Chief Charley Kawbamgam you may want to settle in for a picnic under the Kiwanis picnic shelter.
If one doesn't take the hair-pin turn that leads off the island drive-thru road and into the Black Rocks parking area that is provided, one will discover a pleasant picnic shelter that was provided by the local Marquette Kiwanis organization. The Kiwanis picnic shelter is near a few stoney inlet coves where agates can be found. Be careful navigating the rocky descents to where most times are pleasantly private little grotto like coves. Not only is it wise to swim in pairs, but to also travel in pairs when hiking difficult terrain. The Kiwanis picnic shelter is adjacent to the wonderful Sunset Point. Make a day of it and take advantage of the islands geographical peninsula properties of seeing the sun rise as well as set.
