    Will sleeping bear be like nordhouse?

    Now that Sleeping Bear has sections designated as wilderness does that mean it will be like Nordhouse Dunes?

    That's an interesting question. I just looked on the NPS site and the visitor guides aren't updated. I have a feeling that everything on the mainland will remain the same, with trail signage and designated campsites. It would be cool though to be able to backcountry camp in the area around White Pine Backcountry campground. North Manitou has always been place to do your own thing, so let's hope it doesn't change out there.

    They designated a bunch of the shoreline as wilderness. They closed off a few roads and opened others according to their brief from when they were planning it. I am on my now if its designated wilderness and you have to walk in!
