We were camping at the Silver Lake State Park and just driving around when we dead ended at this mountain of sand, which turned out to be part of Silver Lake sand Dunes. You could see the dunes across the lake from our camp site and we were told that Lake Michigan was on the other side of the dunes.... More

We came up from Chicago for the weekend. A bit of a drive, but the nature is worth it. Camping with friends and family nearby the lake was fun. Plenty of nearby attraction and rentals. Lots of wholesome family fun!

Just came back from a day on Silver Lake. We rented a pontoon boat and took our 3 children (ages 11-16) tubing on the lake. We packed a lunch and stopped at the base of the dunes and walked (slowly) up them and ran down. We went for a swim in the lake too. Another great visit is the Little... More

This was my first time there, and we will return. We spent Saturday and Sunday driving the dunes. We parked right along the beach of Lake Michigan, put up our canopy and had a picnic, watched boats, walked the beach, drag races and the kids playing in the inter coastal pools! A great day of family fun. The key, get... More

While many of these reviews are talking of 4x4 and riding the dunes - we where in a family type area of families laying and playing on the beach - not a single vehicle in sight or ear shot for that matter. The place where we where allowed dogs and there was about a dozen of them there - it... More

We had so much fun at the sand dunes. It was our first time. We rented a RZR 1000. That's the best thing we could have done. That thing will go anywhere. And it hauls! Just about the most fun we could have had in the two hours we were out there. Such a fun time. Will definitely go back.

I went to Silver Lake Sand Dunes with my nephew and his two kids. We had a blast! The view is breathtaking and I would love to go back again. You have got to go if you love the water and sand. I am in my early 50s and the walk up the dunes from the state park was a... More

We stay at the Silver lake Resort and Campground for our annual Dunes trip. Its a great place. Clean, spacious sites with full hookups for your camper or even cabins. After a long day of riding, we like to swim in their sparkling pool. Its close to town, shops, restaurants, Silver Lake Sand Dunes.

If you do anything when you visit Silver Lake, rent a 4x4 and do the dunes. What a blast. We rented a 2 man Razr Quad from Wild Bill's and had a blast for 2.5 hours. There are huge dunes then areas near the shore of the lake and areas with trails through the trees and bushes. Go early in... More

Silver Lake, Michigan what a fantastic find! This quaint little town is nestled in between acres and acres of Sand Dunes, cottages, Lake Michigan, rivers and camp grounds. The town itself is small and doesn't offer a lot of variety of restaurants or hotels, but the quality of what is offered is remarkable. Most of the business establishments are family... More
