We took in the view first which was impressive. The sand dunes reaching the lake are very unique. I thought I'd try the descent which was very easy. I realized that it would be difficult going up as I had done this many years ago. However, time changes things and the log slide isn't as accomodating. There were ledges that... More

After hearing how steep and strenuous the hike back up the log slide is, my husband & I didn't go down. (Also, we had seen on the news that several people had to be rescued because they couldn't make it back up). We walked down slightly to get a view and the view from the overlook is gorgeous. It's part... More

This place was amazing! If you go on a clear, sunny day, the water in Lake Superior is the same blue you would see if you were in the Caribbean! I did not go down the dune, but my son and his friend did. It only took them a couple of minutes to get down and about 20 minutes to... More

This attraction is approximately 50 miles from Munising and it is a very beautiful drive and worth taking the time to see. Love the view from the top, it is breathtaking. I would not recommend going down the sand slope. While we were there a man had to be helped up the hill and they called 911.

Log slide was kinda a let down. No only was it a very overcast day with lotsa fog, (hence unable to even see the slide from the left platform, it seemed to be lacking some loving care. Very unfortunate.

We arrived at Log Slide Overlook at about 9:00 in the morning and we were one of two couples there. The other couple left after a few minutes, so we had the place to ourselves. The views are beautiful. We decided to head down to the bottom to check out the beach area and then hike back up. When we... More

If you didn't know any better you would think you're in the Caribbean. The water is so clear and clean. It was just so peaceful out there. The photo opportunities are endless. The bugs are still bad. The biting flies are immune to deet so long sleeves and pants are helpful. There is also a warning about climbing down for... More

If you need to get rid of some extra energy take a ride Dow the sand dune and run back up. Interesting history for those into local history
