Welcome to Visit Sleeping Bear
This site was created to help people get the most out of their visit to the lakeshore. It also serves as a legacy site. To capture, curate, and share the extensive knowledge my father, Bill Herd has on Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore.
For 35 years Bill Herd served as a National Park Ranger at Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. One of his primary duties was to know a good deal about the area and share his knowledge with Lakeshore visitors. He is retired now but still a “Ranger” at heart. Visit Sleeping Bear is his new platform for sharing his knowledge with you.
What you will find:
Maps that interface with google maps, to help you find the best places to go throughout the park.
Tips on how to get the most out of your visit.
Dynamic information about cultural, ecological, historical, aspects of Sleeping Bear Dunes.
Stunning photography, as several area photographers have signed up to participate in this project.
And much more as the content is developed.
