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.
Eastern National is a private, non-profit organization that provides quality educational products and services to park visitors. A portion of the proceeds are donated back to Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore to support interpretive and educational programs. They operate the Bookstores at the Philip A. Hart Visitor Center, The Dune Center, and the Glen Haven General Store.
