SLEEPING BEAR DUNES NATIONAL LAKESHORE
On the northwestern shore of Michigan's Lower Peninsula lies Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, a hilly region fringed with massive shoreline sand dunes and dotted with clear lakes. It is a diverse landscape, embracing quiet, birchlines streams, dense beech-maple forests, sandy beaches, and rugged, glacially formed bluffs towering as high as 460 feet (140 meters) above Lake Michigan. Offshore, surrounded by the unpredictable waters of Lake Michigan, sit North and South Manitou islands, tranquil and secluded.

It is important to know that Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore is in an area with active dunes which make keeping the boardwalks cleared at all times very challenging.
