Bears, raccoons, and chipmunks all enjoy eating your food. We have experienced more animal encounters during the past couple of years at the Platte River Campground, which prompted Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore and the Friends of Sleeping Bear Dunes to install several Food Storage Lockers throughout the campground. Now if you don’t have a safe area to lock your food, you can store it in one of these animal-proof lockers. This is especially helpful to tent campers. We’ve had great reviews from our campers this summer. Thought you’d like to know that the Friends of Sleeping Bear Dunes has been working to make your camping stay safe and enjoyable!
