Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore is a unique geologic area.  Many consider the extensive dunes beautiful and perhaps even spiritual.

The name of the park, Sleeping Bear Dunes, is not based on bears seen sleeping there.  The name comes from a Native American legend.  Although there are reports of bears within the park, it is most unlikely that you will see any bears. You probably won’t even see any wildlife on the tour because many of the areas are so exposed and provide little cover for the animals to hide.
