The Friends of Sleeping Bear Dunes publishes 13 visitor guide booklets covering a wide variety of topics including 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 are not easily accessible. These booklets are short and easily read and are available at 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. 

You may also download PDF versions of these booklets using the links below. We hope you will consider a donation, especially if you find they heighten your enjoyment of the Park — and we’re sure they will! Please click here to make a donation and become a Friend of Sleeping Bear Dunes!
