The Log Slide Overlook is truly amazing. So much sand leading towards Lake Superior. It's quite fun to run down those huge dunes! Try it, it's worth your time. I wish we had a sled with us, it would have been exhilarating! Any way, I had never seen forests surrounded by dunes. That was new to me! What I didn't... More

This is a simple stop, and worth every second it takes to get there. Nothing fancy. Just a view that rivals the Caribbean. Hard to remember you are in the little old UP of Michigan when standing in the sand here looking down on the most beautiful water... Just go.

This is a really great site. The log slide is just a short (less than 5 min) walk from the parking lot. You get some beautiful views and a lot of history on logging in the area. It's definitely worth it to stop in and take a look--even if you just have half an hour. This is a very unique... More

Not as crowded as sleeping bear dunes with the same type of views. Do not miss the waterfall nearby. Miles of beach to walk.

Short walk on elevated boardwalk. Wheelchair accessible. Stay on path. Do not climb down to lake; it is about 800 ft down the side of the sand dune. Climbing up requires great stamina. Air/boat rescue very expensive - you will be billed! Sand dunes are best in North America; been there since last ice age. Bring camera.

The log slide overlook was very nice and filled with great history. It's amazing how much history there is in upper michigan. Beautiful view from top.

Easy to find from Grand Marais, some informative displays, overlook is a beautiful spot. I wouldn't go down the dunes unless you had lots of time and energy and a good heart.

The log slide is worth the stop. Great view of Lake Superior shoreline. Allow lots of time if you are going to let your kids descend the steep sandy slide. You will get dirty.
