Gateway to the dunes

Home to the Headquarters for Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore and centrally located along the famous M-22 scenic highway, Empire is a haven for outdoor enthusiasts. There’s a reason everyone from surfers, paddlers, hikers, and bikers call this area “The Most Beautiful Place in America.” Miles of secluded, dune-covered beaches. Panoramic lake views tucked along wooded hiking trails. Heart-stopping sunsets and beautiful backcountry bike routes. Whatever you are looking for, you’ll find it in this freshwater paradise.
