It was a fun climb to the top to have a spectacular view of the lake and the surrounding area. Cute little souvenir shop with bathrooms. Be sure and get your sticker when you get back to the bottom.

Lots of stairs. Good exercise. Not much to see but for a buck why not. Gift shop if you are into souvenirs.

Though I don't know for sure, I would say no only because you have to walk through the gift shop to access Castle Rock itself. I'd give them a call to be sure #906-643-8268.
