Upcoming 50th Celebration Events

A sprinter van covered in images of Sleeping Bear Dunes is parked in front of green vegetation.

Name That Van!

The Lakeshore has a brand new mobile visitor center and we are looking for a name!

This tool will help rangers reach people who don’t usually get to visit the park. Rangers will be able to visit communities throughout the state, including urban areas, to bring them a bit of Sleeping Bear Dunes and perhaps introduce them to the National Park Service.

Please e-mail us with your van name suggestions. We will debut the chosen name during our anniversary celebrations in October 2021!
