Going to UP and need a little guidance

I have never been to the UP and have a wonderful opportunity
I have a canon 50D with a 55-250mm zoom lens - and a 18-55mm
Landscape lens - will these be enough for taquemon falls and
Pictured rocks? Should I rent a lens, if so suggestion.

Also I feel like I am so clumsy with tripod any tricks as every
Thing I have read indicates its the only way to go.

Looking forward to hearing from my shutterbug friends.

Barbara,

Those lenses should be fine. They are probably kit lenses, but should do the job. Yes, you could get better glass. It is your choice. You might want to consider a polarizing filter especially for Pictured Rocks to give you a nicer sky and cut down on any glare. The best views are from the water. There is a scenic cruise out of Munising. Shooting from the boat is probably best and handheld is fine.

For the Tahquamenon Falls you want a tripod for a longer time exposure shot if you want the dreamy flow to the falls. Without a tripod, it is possible to set up the camera in a secure spot with a time release. Perhaps using a camera bag or bean bag. Even a gorilla pod or small tripod that will hold your 50D will be an advantage. A cable release or using time release is helpful.
