Resort Amenities are what sets Sleeping Bear Resort apart from other Family Reunion destinations. We’ve thought of everything your family will need to keep your entire family entertained. Whether your family likes to take lots of day trips or whether they like to relax and hang out at the lake, Sleeping Bear Resort is the perfect location. Our most popular amenities are:
- The Private Sandy Beach with ample chairs and water toys for kids and adults of all ages
- The Large Water Trampoline
- Firewood at no charge
- No Cost for the use of any of our Watercraft
- The many viewing platforms and places to sit, relax and take in the beauty of Lake Herendeene
There are three elevated decks/viewing platforms where you can sit, relax, have a beverage, read a book or just take in the sights and sounds of the peaceful and serene Lake Herendeene. We normally have a loon family that makes their seasonal home on Herendeene Lake. Eagles love fishing our lake along with hawks and sometimes ospreys.
The Lake is a 37 acre no-wake lake with several different species of fish like bass, blue gill and perch. The lake is mostly undeveloped with only two homes plus the resort that are viewable from the lake. Boats with motors are allowed but no wake is allowed. The lake is 36 feet at its deepest point. Sleeping Bear Resort has several rowboats and a canoe available for our guests use at no charge. Fishing licenses are required. At the far end of Herendeene Lake is a narrow waterway that leads into Fuller Lake. Take one of our kayaks, canoes or fishing boats into Fuller Lake for some real privacy. Fuller Lake is 12 acres in size and is a great place to really get away from everything.
Our large private beach has several lounge chairs and Adirondack chairs where you can relax and watch the kids play on the lake, practice their skills on our stand-up-paddleboards or have fun on our large water trampoline. The water trampoline which normally goes in the water mid-June is a question mark for 2020 due to the Coronavirus. The lake has a sandy bottom and we keep it raked of unwanted weeds.
