Albert E Sleeper State Park
'Sunset on Lake Erie'

Albert E. Sleeper State Park comprises 723 acres of forest, wetlands and sandy beach and dunes located on the Saginaw Bay of Lake Huron. Visitors can watch both sunrises and sunsets on the bay, relax in the shade and seclusion of the campground or roam the trails of the ancient dune forests. The park first opened as a county park in 1925. In 1927 the state acquired the property and called it Huron State Park. In 1944, the park was renamed in honor of Albert E. Sleeper, governor of Michigan (1917-1920) and resident of Huron County, who signed into law the statute that created the state park system.

Visitor Comments, Memories and Reviews
August 28 Sleepers & Port Cresent 2 ~ Great Parks! by Tim Taylor Michigan
Although I truly love Port Crescent sleepers has fond memories also. I have been camping in the thumb from 1979 to the current date today. Sleepers will always be one of my many stops I visit. I have always enjoyed this park with family and friends for the last 30 years. If you have every wondered what the great lakes look like this is the park to visit. The beach setting and the sun sets are gorgeous and always breathe talking. My children are grown but I will always visit the park once a year to stay and camp.maybe next trip or two might be GRAND kids I will keep my fingers crossed.

June 16 My favorite place on earth
I am 13 so this is a childs prospective. I have been going to sleeper state park since i was 6 months old and my brother since he was 2 months old. My mom has been going since she was a child as well. We love this park and would rather go here than anywhere for a vacation. Right across from lake huron with a bridge that goes right across. Camp activities and all the great wonders of camping. We perfer to get a cite by the woods because we love the racoons. I know it sounds wierd but we love to wake up in the morning and see the little footprints across our camp site. We have so many memories and would recommend it to anyone and everyone. It doesnt matter if your lackidaisical or energetic theres always something for you to do. Also walking the peer,getting fudge and candy at the candy shop and going on a long kiyak ride are traditions here :) have fun!
September 14 One of my favorite parks by Laurie
We have been camping at Sleeper for the past 8 years. We always go in the early fall for one of the Harvest Festival week-ends. The restrooms are clean and the park staff are all friendly and helpful. The camp host and the staff go out of their way to have games and contests for the kids. I always look forward to the fall camping at Sleeper.
August 21 You Should Stay Here! by Michelle
We stayed 2 days in early August 2009. It was by far, one of the best state parks Michigan has to offer. The staff was friendly and the facilities were clean.
June 18 Great Park by Leighton
