Everything is shut down in the winter but the natural scenery still makes it worth the visit. The lighthouse is beautiful and it was fun to just drive around and see the sights. Would love to go back this summer!

This was FUN, FUN, FUN! We took a four-wheeler with us and rented another while we were there. We had 2 hours of riding the dunes. It. Was. Awesome. Really, you need to check it.

The sand dunes are a Michigan gem, and they do not disappoint in the least. We were able to go up on the dunes to walk over to Lake Michigan, along with playing volleyball along the edge of the dunes. The lake is also the perfect size to take out the boat of jet skis to cruise around and have... More

We had an awesome time on the dunes. A couple friends had dune buggies and took us for a ride. We spent the day on the beach also. Met very friendly people having a great time.

Never been to the Sand Dunes or the West side of Michigan for that matter. First time at the dunes, had a blast. Next time we are camping at Silver Lake, the drive from Holland was a bit a long, but so worth it. Our driver Michael was a riot. Would definitely do this adventure again.

If you're looking for a perfect family vacation, look no further. This great little vacation town is all local. No chain restaurants or hotels. We visited several local restaurants and were all good. There is a family entertainment center with go carts, mini-golf, ect. There a few gift shops and a couple ice cream shops. If you want to camp,... More

We enjoyed a family picnic at Lighthouse beach in silver lake. The kids went dune buggying while we set up at the beach for a picnic. The beach is wonderful feels like an ocean without the salt water. The water is clear and cool. The kids flew kites, swam and played in the dunes. We watched the windsufers surf while... More
