Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, tucked away in the northwest corner of Michigan’s Lower Peninsula, won the title of Good Morning America’s “Most Beautiful Place in America”. This hidden gem stretches 35 miles along Lake Michigan, two islands, 26 inland lakes, more than 50,000 acres of land, and the monumental sand dunes from which it gets its name.
The Philip A. Hart Visitor Center is a great starting point to get your park pass, maps, brochures and to learn about the history of the dunes and the surrounding area. Park Rangers are available to help plan your visit and answer any questions you may have about the park.
