  • There was a life saving demonstration going on when we arrived so some parts of the museum were closed. Another park ranger came and spoke to us as we were peering into a closed section and let us know he'd open it up shortly for us. We went ahead to go out and look at the shore line and when we came back we noticed a giant stick in the middle of the Walk way sticking up between boards, Steve, that same park ranger, came to tell us there was a screw sticking up and he was about to fix it. All the rangers were very kind and informative and the area was well kept. Glad we found this gem!
  • Lake Michigan and its vast sand dunes are really something special. The hikes around this area can sometimes be quite challenging, but the scenery and views make it worth the effort. I also enjoyed the small, touristy little towns tucked among the forested hills.
