Turnip Rock Kayak

A Treasured Rock at the Tip of the Thumb

Cable News Network, CNN, has declared Huron County’s iconic rock one of America’s most amazing, or weird, rock formations. Located on private property at Pointe Aux Barques and accessible only by canoe or kayak. Explorers to the site are treated to an amazing limestone formation just off the beach.  The formation has been described as:

This enormous rock received its turnip connotation from thousands of years of erosion from storm waves. Now, it is an island with a few trees and little other vegetation. The land nearby is all privately owned, so the only way to view it is by waterway or trekking across a frozen Lake Huron in the winter. It is quite the comedic, awe-inspiring landmark, located at the tip of Michigan’s thumb.” – Michigan.org
