Families flock to the beaches and trails of this picturesque shoreline park. – Features
Children busily build sand castles while older folks sunbathe along the 6,000 feet of sandy beach at this popular Sturgeon Bay park. While most visitors are here for the sand and crashing Lake Michigan surf, Whitefish Dunes also offers more than 14 miles of hiking trails, which wander through woods and up the park's eponymous sand dunes.
Close to the main parking lot, the park's interpretive center is a helpful resource for trail maps and brochures describing area birds, plant life, even fungi (amanita virosa, anyone?). Trails meander past replicated sites of eight different Indian settlements; for a great view of the area, follow the Red Trail through lush foliage up to Old Baldy, the tallest dune in the park at 93 feet.
