We LOVE this place. The sand dunes offer hours of fun for climbing and exploring. Not to mention the cardio you will get from the climb! The beach front is clean. Follow the shoreline down and a creek will run off it. Our favorite activity is following that creek to the clay pit! Once we cover ourselves in the "mud"... More

Warren Dunes has long been a favorite of ours. If you're wanting to go to the beach and hang out for a day, this is a great place to do that in MI. Plenty of sand for kids to play in; plenty of trails to go hiking if you're not wanting to stay on the beach necessarily; really good beach... More

We (2 adults, 2 kids under age 10) had a wonderful time on the beach, trails, and dunes. We stayed overnight at the campground, which was at capacity on Saturday night. It was very tight - the campsites are packed close together. Unfortunately for us, our neighbors partied til 1am, the no alcohol permitted rule apparently is unenforced here. We'll... More

My wife grew up in Midland, MI, and for our summer vacation she showed us placed her family visited as she grew up. She talked about Warren Dunes being beautiful and tall and fun. I saw a few pictures before we visited, and I was blown away by their ~170-180 feet height, the deep blue of the cool-but-enjoyable Lake Michigan... More

Just another reason that Michigan is one of the most beautiful states in the midwest. The dunes give you an amazing view of the lake and if you are willing to climb it can also give you a great workout ;)

Warren Dunes is a awesome place to visit. The address shown on Michigan.gov site for Warren Dunes is incorrect. My GPS followed the incorrect address and let me into a wooded area instead until I found a party store and found out that I was at the wrong spot just like many other people. Warren Dunes is located off exit... More

On our drive from Detroit to Chicago we seen he park on the GPS and decided to stop. The park was great. Beautiful dune and nice long beach. We stopped during prime seasons and it was busy but did feel too crowded ( probably because the beach and dunes were spread out ). There is a charge. It was $11... More

After going along the 'private' beaches we decided to check out 'the dunes', we've been back 5 times in 3 months! There is plenty of room on the beach, it never feels super crowded and it's not a long walk from your car with all of your stuff. And walking up the dunes can be fun too if it's not... More

This is my favorite beach on Lake Michigan - nice sand and the water is usually warm in August. The campground is very nice, too (both the modern and rustic).

Not many beaches are pet friendly and clean, and this one is! At the end of the parking lot there is a dog path that will take you to the dog friendly beach section. Please make sure you don't take your pet outside designated areas, otherwise the park employees will yell at you and threaten with tickets.
