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.

I've been coming to the log slide since I was a little kid, but this was the first time I took my family. My children are 2 and 4 so I didn't let them go all the way down, but they enjoyed climbing and jumping and running on the top part. Running down the dune is tons of fun. The... More

It is amazing at how they logged this area. If you are up to a strenuous hike, you can hike down the 60% incline to Lake Superior 300 feet below. Just remember, if you can't make it back up the rescue fees are quite steep.
