Shivering Sands is a short walk from your beachfront suite.

When you stay at Glidden Lodge Beach Resort, you are within 10 miles of some of Door County’s most beautiful outdoor destinations including Cave Point, Whitefish Dunes and Clark Lake.
However, just down the road from our beautiful Lake Michigan beachfront resort is Shivering Sands, a lesser known destination whose pristine wetlands are under the watchful eye of The Nature Conservancy. From their website:
The 3,400-acre Shivering Sands wetland complex encompasses three lakes, several streams and springs, forested sand dunes, lowland conifer forest, sedge meadows and fens. It is rich in rare plant life and is home to many birds, mammals, frogs and other wildlife.
Why did The Nature Conservancy decide to purchase acreage at Shivering Sands:
Located on Lake Michigan just north of Sturgeon Bay, the variety of plant communities at Shivering Sands Preserve provides excellent habitat for several rare plants and myriad wildlife and is exceptional in both size and diversity.
Details on hiking Shivering Sands:
There is a relatively flat, 1-mile loop walking trail, which can sometimes be wet in spots so wear appropriate footwear. Mosquitoes can be abundant in early summer, so repellent and long pants/sleeves are a good idea.
Contact the Conservancy office at 242 Michigan Street, Sturgeon Bay for more information or call (920-743-8695).
Book some time at Glidden Lodge Beach Resort so you can discover one of the Midwest’s most important wetland right here within walking distance of of your Lake Michigan beachfront suite!
