The Friends of Sleeping Bear Dunes publishes 13 inexpensive visitor guide booklets covering a wide variety of topics from visitor information, area history, and environmental or scientific topics related to the Park. Many extensive research reports have been written about these topics, but they were in large reports which were expensive and not easily accessible to the average visitor. These booklets are short, easily read, and inexpensive. The booklets are available in several locations in and near the National Lakeshore for a donation of $3 per booklet or 2 booklets for $5, which covers the cost of printing. About 70,000 of the booklets have been distributed since 2006 when the first booklets were published. You may download them for FREE here:
