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

I've brought my Jeep here several times and love it! It can be very busy during the holidays but very fun to watch and cruise the beach.

The Silver Lake Sand Dunes is one area of the Silver Lake State Park (park entrance fee required). It was a bit of a challenge climbing up the loose sandy dunes but so worth the effort. At the top, the sand was packed better and the walking was easier. Here, we saw a small “ghost forest” and we enjoyed the... More

Camped across Silver Lake at the State Campgrounds, had great view of the dunes. Be sure and take a dune buggy ride (your own or Mack Woods), run down a dun (where permitted), and walk on the shore of the "Big Lake". There is nothing like Lake Michigan in the summer: the air just shimmers!

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
