Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore is a beautiful park. This is a very large park and you can see quite a bit by driving and taking short walks. However to view the majority of the park you will need to get out and hike.
A word of caution to visitors in the fall, winter, and spring months. Although the main visitors center in Empire, MI is open year round, along with the famous Dune Climb, many interesting parts of the park are basically only open during the summer months from Memorial Day to Labor Day.
Points of interests that are closed in the fall, winter, and spring are the Pierce Stocking Scenic Drive, the Dune Center Bookstore, Glen Haven General Store, Cannery Boat Museum, Glen Haven Blacksmith Shop, and Sleeping Point Maritime Museum. These are all very interesting to visit but you can only view these during the summer season.
