Waves of mid-summer color
Description - This beautiful state park is named for Governor Albert E. Sleeper who in 1917 created the Michigan State Park Commission. Many people initially donated parcels of land including this tract that features half a mile of sandy beachfront along Lake Huron.

Attractions - Sleeper State Park is a day and overnight destination located on Michigan's "thumb."
The Lake Huron park features a 223-site modern campground with both sun and shade sites available. The campground is open year-round with modern facilities offered mid-April through late-October. Amenities include children's playground, picnic shelter, pay telephone, and horseshoe pits. Call 1-800-44-PARKS for reservations.

Four miles of marked nature trails traverse thickly forested old dune ridges and wetlands. In the winter, the park offers cross-country skiing and can be used as a camp for those wishing to ice-fish or snowmobile nearby.

The state park adjoins Rush Lake State Game Area, a favorite waterfowl hunting tract.

Recreation - Albert E. Sleeper State Park visitors enjoy a wide selection of campsites, a sandy swimming beach, hunting and fishing opportunities, and wooded trails. The winter season attracts snowmobilers and cross-country skiers.

Climate - Saginaw Bay has mild to warm summers with temperatures averaging above 70 degrees F (above 21 degrees C). Winter temperatures average 18 to 22 degrees F (-8 to -6 degrees C). This is the driest region in the state with yearly precipitation amounts hovering around 28 inches.

Location - The park is located 10 miles north of Bad Axe off M-53 and M-25.

Report: Great park! Easy walking from the camps to the beach and to the trails. Look out for rocks on the bottom of the lake. On the hike, we saw 4 glazed ceramic cups. I wonder who left them there along the trail.
