This is an annual thing for our family to do as we enjoy the Cherry Fest in July. We try to pick a day that will be cooler and maybe cloudy so it's easier to handle the 45-50 minute walk up/down the dunes. People are always pleasant as you pass them either way, because they're in the same boat as you are. BRING PLENTY OF WATER--FROZEN WATER BOTTLES will melt by the return trip!!! Sand/surf socks are great to wear, but sneakers will weigh you down and get filled with sand, so you'll have to keep taking them on/off!! Don't forget sunscreen sunglasses and hats. When you complete the journey to the lake you'll be rewarded with a COOL-COLD dip in Lake Michigan, to help you recover for the return trip. We always treat ourselves to a frozen ice cream from their machine after we get back. CLEAN RESTROOMS EVERY TIME WE'VE BEEN THERE! Friendly staff at entry. $10 (week-long) or you can buy an annual. ENJOY!
Well worth the few hours you'll spend there--but be smart: LEAVE YOUR PETS AT HOME!!!!
