History of the Area
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.
Cabins
Sleeper Outdoor Center is comprised of 14 cabins, a 120-seat capacity dining hall with a well-equipped kitchen, a toilet/shower building, and a picnic pavilion. It is located in a highly secluded and wooded portion of the park. Nearby hiking trails provide miles of multi-use recreational opportunities. Lake Huron is one half mile away and may be reached by hiking trail or a short drive. The entire facility may be rented for a larger group or individual cabins may be rented by a family or smaller group. From late-October to late-April, both the dining hall and the restroom building are closed, but vault toilets are available for use with cabin rental. For more Outdoor Center or individual cabin information, please contact the park at 989-856-4411.

Sleeper State Park is awesome for their Halloween weekends. The fall time is so pretty there, and the kids love the parade/trick or treating. We have been going every year for it for the past 6 years.
