A Destination for all Seasons

In spring, enjoy the quiet beauty of new blossoms and emerging wildlife on our woodland trails, and be among the first to make your mark on the Dunes.

Come summertime, the sands and waters are alive and buzzing with excitement, seasonal attractions are open for your amusement, and life at the lake is good!

As things start to wind down again in the fall, you can enjoy the sights, sounds, and tastes of autumn that Michigan is famous for, including a spectacular show of color from our forests.

When the snow starts to fly there’s no need to stay cooped up indoors as winter brings with it new activities. Ski, snowmobile, or ice fish your way through the season.
