Michigan - Pictured Rocks and Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes, need suggestions.

Jump to last reply

Trying to plan an impromptu trip for July. Driving from Ohio. Became enchanted with photos of the Pictured Rocks and couldn't believe we haven't explored such a beauty relatively close to home. Need help with lodging and general tips. We have 3 children - 14,12 and 10, looking for a moderate place to stay - hotel chain is fine, kitchenette would be better. We like to be outdoors as much as possible, so basically clean and close location are the priorities.

My husband also wants to try the sand dunes near the Silverlake / Sleeping Bear area. Any recommendations where to stay?

We are looking at splitting the two areas over a period of 8 days - leaning towards more time in the UP area since we like to hike, perhaps rent a boat for fishing.

Any help is appreciated !
