This is something everyone must see once! The views from Silver Lake and up on top of the Dunes are gorgeous. You can look over the dunes to Lake Michigan as well. My family rented a pontoon and cruised Silver Lake a climbed the dunes all day! I will say, we couldn't have spent more than a day there though.... More

OH MY GOSH.... Amazing I have always wonder what the big deal is over the sand dunes. Now I know. The ride up to the dunes was so exciting and once we got to the top, we looked down over Silver Lake. I felt like I was on another planet. the guide did a great job giving interesting facts. A... More

My husband and I just took a trip looking around at RV parks. This was our last stop and we were amazed at how awesome this place was. It was so beautiful and fun, I couldn't believe that we had never been there before. I could spend every weekend here for sure. Great place for couples and families.

We had a blast at Silver Lake! We had 2 lifted trucks on the dunes all weekend. It was safer than I imagined. This was my first time here and I didn't wanna leave. The views are amazing. Sand, water, the beach, trees & fun! I can't wait to go back!

We spent the day at the beach and the evening visiting the shops and restaurants. One recommendation I do have is that to really enjoy this area you would be better off parking your care and walking. We parked at the state campground and walked through town which made the visit more enjoyable.

8 cabins Burried under blowing and drifting sand dunes. It's totally awesome the power off the wind and sand taking over where they want. So much fun, definitely a must see. We loved it.

We've been going here for many years. Usually stay in the cottages along the lake. We've brought our own cars into the dunes and rented the jeeps there. Very fun times! Visit the lighthouses, go to the race track, catch the Mount Baldy hill climb if you can, eat some cherry turnovers. Always have a fun trip to the dunes!

It was a family reunion of sorts. Our good friends from Saline MI. booked a cute little cottage on the shores of the lake. Her brother and fam. stayed next door. Great location and views of the dunes. We ventured a walk all the way up to the top of the dunes. What a trek great for the leg muscles... More

We come here every Memorial Day weekend, and the kids love it! We stay at Yogi Bear, check out all the shops, fish, run through the dunes, and eat asparagus sausages on the grill. We will come back every year.

This place is such a great place to go. I always go during the week when there are less entry restrictions, and much less traffic. It's great to be able to set up camp on the beach and swim, or jump in the buggy, atv, or whatever and go zip around the dunes. It is such a big place with... More
