Sturgeon Bay Dunes

Sturgeon Bay Dunes

750 acres. Frontage: 4,100 feet on Lake Michigan. A beloved public beach. The protected dunes provide habitat for the endangered Piping Plover and four threatened species of plants (Lake Huron Tansy, Pitcher's Thistle, Pumpell's Bromegrass and Houghton's Goldenrod). A township park is at the center of the property's length; the North Country Trail runs through the back dunes of the park. The preserve is located at the southwest end of Wilderness State Park. Accessible from N. Lake Shore Drive at the north end of M-119. There is a turnaround as well as roadside parking for shoreline access.
