“Splurge and take the dune tour”
Reviewed March 12, 2013

For several ears we've enjoyed exploring and playing on the dunes in our own vehicle. On our last visit we opted to add the tour and I'm glad we did. Our tour guide was knowledgable and funny. He took several family photos of us and to our surprise he even included a few of himself.
Be aware of where you sit though, especially if traveling with children.
The line to get on the dunes can get quite long if you are going on your own so take plenty of water and snacks.
The views are gorgeous!

“great relaxing family vacation place”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

Laid back place to visit. Lots of activities to chose from. Good food options and shopping. Very nice campgrounds and nature area's. The dunes and lake are amazing also. Make sure to take the Dune rides if you haven't before.

“Riding on the sand dunes”
Reviewed January 15, 2013

We rented ATVs and rode on the sand dunes. It was a blast!! High hills along Lake Michigan gave us lots of photo ops. We will travel here to do this again.

Reviewed January 1, 2013

One of the fastest shifting sand dunes in the USA. It is a fun and relaxing walk across the dunes. I would highly recommend the experience.

“Natural wonder”
Reviewed December 15, 2012

Rent a dune buggy or just enjoy the sand. Great place to relax. Great lake for boating. Big drop off so watch out if you have small children.
