Great stop to see these incredible Sand Dunes, some so large they are swallowing up homes! We enjoyed taking a ride on a sand buggy for around $20 each, great way to explore the dunes if you don’t own a Jeep!

Absolutely amazing! It's going to be very windy, so don't bother with a fancy hairdo! It feels like a tiny sand-storm, the sand gets everywhere!

Loved the dunes! Great views of Silver Lake and Lake Michigan. Sand will be hot, but if you move quickly, it's okay. We walked the dunes to Silver Lake and then played in the water for a while, which was so refreshing for our feet!...More

I had been here as a child, and wanted to show my daughter what I loved about it. We made the trip from Tennessee and it wasn’t as easy to climb the dunes as I remember, age might have something to do with that. Lol....More
