Love the dunes!

We visit the dunes every year for over 10 years now and love it each time! The holidays tend to be very busy, but going other times is just as fun.

What a great trip to take whether it is with your family or yourself. The views are breathtaking. The dune rides are a must and climbing to the top is awesome.

The sand dunes are so beautiful & amazing with Slver Lake being a great tourist town to visit. Lots of places to camp if that's your thing. A visit to Little Point AuSable Lighthouse & Lake Michigan are a must see! You won't be disappointed whether it is summer or winter!

These dunes area great way to have fun and enjoy nature! Beautiful formation, breathtaking views, and good people. You can explore the dunes by renting a shared or private, self-driven ATV, or bringing your own vehicle. We took the sunset tour as a family and recommend it to all our friends.

Lived in Michigan my whole life but had never seen the Dunes. It was breathtaking. We climbed up a woodsy hill and the next thing I knew I was on my hands and knees crawling my way up to the top of a sand hill. Got to the top and was blown away. Could see nothing but rolling sand as... More
