FamilyExpert Tips & Helpful Hints
  • For information about camping on Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, visit http://www.nps.gov/slbe/planyourvisit/campgrounds.htm
  • From canoes to bikes, you'll have several choices of outfitters for renting equipment. Here are some to try: Crystal River Outfitters (http://www.crystalriveroutfitters.com/index.asp) or Hawkins Fly Fishing (http://www.hawkinsflyfishing.com/).
  • Come prepared. Empire and Glen Arbor, the two villages in the area, are very small (a little over 300 residents each) so you may not be able to run out for a loaf of bread or other necessity 24/7.

Whether you and your family are die-hard naturalists or just enjoy a walk through a shady forest or skimming stones on the lake, any trip to the Grand Traverse area isn’t complete without a trip to Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. Offering
