Enjoy Sleeping Bear Free This Saturday

April 19, 2019

In celebration of National Park Week April 20-28, the $25 entrance fee to Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore will be waived on Saturday, April 20. The National Lakeshore is one of the 419 units of the National Park System which will waive entrance fees to mark the beginning of National Park Week. Visitors wishing to camp Saturday night at D. H. Day or Platte River Campgrounds will be required to pay the camping fee.
 
The Pierce Stocking Scenic Drive is not scheduled to open for vehicle traffic until early May, but all park trails, including the Sleeping Bear Heritage Trail, are open for exploration. While only the first day of the week is free, each day is dedicated to a different theme. The National Lakeshore will have social media posts each day related to the themes.

Other fee-free days scheduled this year are Aug. 25 (National Park Service Anniversary), Sept. 28 (National Public Lands Day), and Nov. 11 (Veterans Day).
