We visited on a Friday afternoon. It wasn't busy. If you can't do walking on sand this is not for you. It was a place were younger people climb up and down the dunes. It was very place and will be better when the leaves change in the autumn.

Wow! Hard to believe there is such a massive sand dune on the South shore of Lake Superior. After reading the history and envisioning what transpired at the location as part of the logging industry, hard to even fathom what that must have been like. The view is amazing, when you look down more than 300 feet and see people... More

This place is incredible! The views of the lakeshore are stunning. We didn't make the journey down to the bottom of the slide, but it looks like it'd be a pretty good workout on the way back up! Great photo opportunities.

We enjoyed the short walk to Log Slide overlook where we could enjoy the beautiful scenery of Lake Superior and the shoreline. It was a cloudy day but we could still enjoy the beauty.

Visited the park for a photo shoot for Dance Across the USA. Warning: there's no cell service in this whole area. While it's so beautiful I was surprised following directions and then they just went away. I had no service I couldn't even make a phone call. Make sure you have a physical map. The Log Slide is much closer... More

In my opinion, if you are visiting the area, it is silly to miss this natural beauty. The "log slide" itself is long gone; decayed into history, but the STEEP sand hill is worth seeing. Read the info boards to learn about the deadly job of logging 100 years ago. The views are excellent. It is an easy walk to... More

Add it to the bucket list, carefully descending the slide and climbing (hands and knees) back up. Please, please do not attempt this unless you are somewhat physically fit. It is extremely challenging and be sure to read the sign at the top of the slide before you decide whether or not to do it. My 6 yr old made... More

This was another highlight on our trip. You have a great view to the east and the west of the shoreline. The dunes to the east and Au Sable lighthouse to the west. There is also a huge dune to run down but beware and read the warning sign of what you may encounter on the way back up!

We stopped at this overlook on a rainy day. The dunes and the view were still awesome. Very representative of the areas shoreline.

We brought our two children (ages 9 and 7) to check this out. It was a short walk from the parking lot and there was a nice overlook where we could take in the view and get some pictures. No matter what you see on the computer, the pictures just can't do the real thing justice. We then went to... More
