    This is a destination for hikers who want to enjoy spectacular lake views, sand dunes, and Michigan flora and fauna. There's plenty to see and do in the area. Highly recommended.

    This is an awesome national lakeshore. It has everything you would want in a park facility. The views of the lake are amazing. The trails are beautiful and the campgrounds are pretty nice.
