Glen Arbor Travel Guide: 17 reviews and 30 photos

Glen Arbor is home to both big and little Glen Lake and the Crystal River which is a great place for kyaking and canoeing. The main attraction here is the Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes. The Indian legend is that there was a great fire in Wisconsin forcing a mother bear and her two cubs to swim across Lake Michigan. The mother bear reached the shores of Michigan, however the two bear cubs did not make it. They drowned and formed the two Manitou Islands. The mother bear fell asleep on the shore waiting for her two cubs to return, forming the Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes.
