Family Reunions


Sleeping Bear Resort is a very popular family reunion destination for groups of up to 54 people. Located exactly half-way between Traverse City and Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, Sleeping Bear Resort provides a unique venue where family members have the difficult decision of spending their days at the resort relaxing and visiting with family members or venturing out and exploring all the area has to offer.  Either choice is a good one! Those spending their days at the resort will enjoy a serene setting with a spectacular view of Herendeene Lake where the kids of all ages will enjoy our kayaks, fishing boats, standup paddle boards and our very popular water trampoline.
