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.
The Recreation Passport is required for vehicle entry into state parks and recreation areas, state boat launches, state forest campgrounds and state trail parking lots. Details and information on how to obtain your Michigan Recreation Passport can be found by visiting the MICHIGAN RECREATION PASSPORT web page.

August 21 Childhood Memories
park review stars; one to five I have to say that your State Park is one of my favorite childhood memories. With that being said, I was so very disappointed when we planned a day trip to the beach recently. I was saddened by how overgrown the beach has gotten. It seems that there is only a third of the beach left. I felt as though we were stacked on top of each other. I would really love to know if there is anything I could do to help this situation or if there is someone I can contact to fix it.
August 28 Sleepers & Port Cresent 2 ~ Great Parks! by Tim Taylor Michigan
park review stars; one to five 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.
