Had for gotten how truly beautiful the sites were from here. The 500 ft. log slide is a fun excursion for the younger people. If your not wanting to do the log slide just walk out a little ways and the views are fabulous!

It's quite a drive out to the Log Slide Overlook, but it's well worth it. Fantastic scenery and views and interesting history too.

You park next to a sandy bank of Lake Superior where there used to be a flume that logs were sent down so they could be floated to market on Lake Superior. None of the flume is left, just sand. You can walk a little...More

I wouldn't term this a destination but in your drive along H-58, if you have time, definitely stop to take a look. The fittest (and kids) can descend the 500 feet (300 vertical); climbing back up takes a while. Maybe pics will help you comprehend,...More

Absoly amazing. It was just a suggestion that we go here. The view was stunning and it was a quick walk to get to the overlook. Beyond recommended. We ate at the Dunes Saloon afterwards - also recommended.

This is absolutely beautiful! I really think it was prettier than Sleeping Bear Dunes, but it's tough to say. It is at least just as pretty. It was such a hidden gem for us because we have been to Munising a few times and never...More

It’s probably not fair for me to give this site a review, but when we went here the fog had rolled in and we couldn’t see a thing! I was so disappointed! We couldn’t see more than 5 feet in front of us so we...More

This place is amazing. Breathtaking view of Lake Superior, with a sand slide to let you get all the way down to it. (Beware the posted warning signs regarding not going down unless you are certain you can get back up.) And if you’re REALLY...More

This overlook has a an easy walk from the parking lot, and has interesting signs about the history along the way. You have to climb a small sand dune, but nothing major. The history and the view made it worth the stop.
