  • This was my second time visiting the park. I was on a trip to Joliet and was traveling with my Mom. She had never been to the park and wanted to see the dunes and the beaches. I will start off by sayi...  read more »
  • On the day I went to Warren Dunes, it was so windy that hiking, even walking on the beach was just too uncomfortable. Sand was blowing everywhere. The park is beautiful and very well kept. 
  • We’ll be back to visit this gem in SW Michigan. We hiked this park on a Friday in mid-September, meaning that that there we nearly alone. The hiking through the woods was shaded and peaceful as well a...  read more »
  • The dunes are amazing and a work out. If you have young kids, realize you will end up carrying them for part of the way up. Multiple parking lots. Keep in mind there is limited consession stands and they are located near the very first parking area. Multiple bathrooms available and places to spray of feet from stand outside and highly viable which is safe for kids. 3 different camping options ranging from rustic with nothing but a fire pit, to places with electricity.
  • We love this beach! Very clean and the water is beautiful! If you have the energy, there's a large dune everyone enjoys climbing. The view is breathtaking! After taking in the view and catching your breath from the climb, everyone enjoys running down the dune as fast as you can! It definitely brings the kid out in you!
  • I hiked the main loop and it was okay. Trail conditions in some areas could use some work since they were impassible. Park service is hard to find. Cost is $9 for day use. A bit confusing permit process.
  • My family was followed from the entrance of the park to the dog path area (complete start to end of beach parking lot) by a heavy set older man on a four wheeler to get accused of not having current tags or a Michigan park rec pass. My mom insisted we just got our insurance and info updated including having a valid pass. He kept pressing that we didn't and joked that being from around the Detroit area explains why our tags must've been stolen. My mom got out and what do you know , HER TAG WAS THERE AND GOOD TILL MARCH 2017. We felt harassed and uncomfortable. Still decided to find a great spot and lounge infront of the water. Couldnt relax due to BITING FLIES. We tried bug repellent but it didn't help at all! I believe they are called Horse flies that have invaded the skirts of Lake Michigan. We stayed a good 45 minutes until we couldn't take the stinging pain of the bites. It sucks because the view is amazing ! Sadly won't be returning. We had a better time in the pool at our hotel.
  • Loved it!! The facilities are lacking severely, but they are in the process of a new building. The beach itself was clean and well watched over by park services (weather warnings). If you go you must try the sand dunes and clay pit! The kids had a blast at both.
