Set along a beautiful sandy beach on Lake Michigan, this state park protects a fragile ecosystem set among sand dunes. A cordwalk traverses the grass-covered rolling sands and offers views of the lake and rare plant species. The glaciers of the Wisconsin Period of the Ice Age carved out the basin that is now Lake Michigan, depositing fine sand. When the waters of the previous glacial lake receded, beaches emerged and winds created the dunes we see today. The cordwalk, a series of narrow planks that traverses the sands, offers a chance for hikers to responsibly see the fragile dunes and their uncommon plants.
