Sleeping Bear Dunes now Cashless

Campground offices and the Visitor Center are staffed and will be open daily throughout the summer. These locations will be CASHLESS. Meaning the park will only be accepting credit cards or checks for payment.  

Due to staffing issues, the entrance stations at Scenic Drive and Dune Climb will be open periodically throughout the summer when staffing allows. 

Iron Rangers (self-pay pipe safes) are located throughout the lakeshore and visitors can pay with cash, credit card or check
