Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore Professional Review and Guide
"This prized expanse of Lake Michigan shoreline offers lovely sand beaches, towering dunes, and a plethora of launching options for day trips. Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore is one of Michigan’s natural treasures. The shoreline itself is blessed with miles of inviting beach and gargantuan dunes, while inland areas feature fauna-rich wetlands and rolling forests of beech, maple, oak, and pine.
Of course, sampling Sleeping Bear’s riches comes at a price. The many and varied charms of the region attract huge throngs of vacationers on hot summer weekends, transforming facility campgrounds and parking lots into hives of activity that can frazzle the nerves of even the most serene individuals. Luckily for kayakers, a vast blue refuge from the din lies waiting offshore."
