Warren Dunes State Park
12032 Red Arrow Hwy, Sawyer, MI 49125, USA
Michigan's Famous Sand DunesWarren Dunes State Park is where Michigan's most famous sand begins. As you drive into the state park—which offers not only day-time fun, such as swimming and hiking but also camping and cabins—sand fills your vision, from towering dunes on your right to long stretches of beach on your left. Sand drifts across the parking lot, from which tree-dotted dunes arise. In summer, hiking on the park's six miles of trail is best early in the morning. Nothing beats emerging from the woods at the hottest point of the day, sliding down a dune, and jumping straight into the lake. Forgot provisions? There are food-trucks in the parking lot, as well as an affordable place to rent beach chairs and umbrellas.
