Warren Dunes State Park is a 1,952 acre (7.9 km²) Michigan State Park, that is located along the eastern shore of Lake Michigan in Berrien County, Michigan. This park's large sand dunes and lakeshore beaches make it one of the most popular of Michigan’s state parks with an average of about one million visitors annually.
Large sand dunes are found throughout the park. Some of the park's dunes include ones named Mt. Fuller, Pikes Peak, and Mt. Edwards, with the most significant one being Tower Hill, the highest point in the park, which stands 240 feet (73 meters) above the Lake Michigan. This dune is the one that is most visible to visitors, many of whom delight in scrambling up its slopes and rushing back down again. Sandboarding is a popular sport here, and easy access to the dunes make it a popular location to practice this sport
This sand dunes and beach area was preserved by the local businessman, Edward K. Warren, who purchased the site with the sole intention of preserving the fragile environment. By 1930, the Warren Dunes area had been taken over as a state park.
