“Educational and fun! Beyond expectations!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013 via mobile

We bought the $10 park pass and what a bargain.
We took the grandchildren to Sleeping Bear Dunes and they went through the Jr Ranger program. They offer so many wonderful educational programs it is unbelievable.
In particular is Ranger Peg with so much enthusiasm it was contagious. She made the programs so interesting and fun.
My husband and I even went to a program without the grand kids!

“it was raining so we went”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

Not one for museums typically, but were in the area and a passing shower cropped up. the house was closed for renovations, but the surrounding buildings and beach area were open for exploring. the park rangers were extremely knowledgeable. The rain picked up so we ran into the blacksmith shop. However, it is one of the highlights of the trip. The gentleman working the shop is an ironsmith and makes and iron coat hook and tells the tale of the town. Worth your time, worth the education for the kids.
