Ice Caves No Longer Safe
The ice formations in Leelanau Township, north of the park, are no longer safe to visit. High winds have fractured the ice, moving it to the west. Huge cracks have formed in the cave arches, making them very unsafe and open water is now visible.
FUN - Families United With Nature
F.U.N (Families United with Nature) is an outdoor activity club for families, hosted by Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. The club provides a fantastic opportunity for families to get outdoors together and try their hand at something new, breathe a little fresh air, and meet other families who enjoy being outside. FUN meets every second Sunday of the month at 2:00 p.m., with additional special events throughout the year.
Families can join the club by filling out a membership form at any FUN event. Members will receive free journals to document their outdoor activities and have the opportunity to earn rewards as a family for these experiences. Joining FUN is free; however, a Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore Park Entrance Pass will be required for activities taking place within the park.
