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.
Revised Firewood Policy
Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore (National Lakeshore) is announcing a revision of their current campground firewood policy. To prevent and slow the spread of forest pests and diseases, the revised policy states that campers may use only firewood acquired from vendors approved by the National Lakeshore. Campers are urged to refrain from bringing firewood with them on their trip.
