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.

Spent three days here in August 2014 with the family (me, my wife, and our dog) and we loved it. It was not too crowded for a Mon, Tues, Wed, and most people were responsible with their dogs. Our dog loved playing in the 'surf' and swimming to retrieve his toy. The dog beach was segregated from the "people only"... More

This is going to be more of a review on the campgrounds, as I didn't find a lot of info when I was searching. My son and I arrived on a Monday around 5:30, after stopping at Wal Mart in Michigan City for groceries! Sadly, the campground doesn't include the parking pass, so camping two nights ended up being $60.... More
