Get your dose of fresh air at Wild Bill's! There were 4 of us, and we all rented our own ATV's. They also offer 2 person Razors. They provide everything you need - helmet, goggles, direction, transportation, and of course the ATV. The only thing that they do not provide is a Trump flag, but do not worry, you will see plenty on the dunes. Staff is to the point and maintain a level of fun, joking about how much they hate singing and dancing. We did have a difficult time getting up the large dunes with the one person ATV's, so if you are not afraid of heights you may want to check into the razor. You can also enjoy the shores and beach of Lake Michigan. We did a 2 hour rental, and as first timers, that was long enough.

We arrived 30 minutes early like we were requested. They told us we had to read the waiver and the contract. We also had to pay a $500 deposit. Now this was a shock because there was nothing on their site that said we had to pay $500 deposit for damages. Now that part that got me scared and paranoid was the woman at the counter who said "These machines cost $23,000 each (RZR'S), if you flip one or damage one it will cost you the damage waiver and the cost of the vehicle." Great!! Now I am going to be so worried that we can't have fun out there. My husband had to drive it as I am a larger woman and had a hard time getting behind the wheel. We rode out to the dunes on the transport vehicle, once we arrived they gave us instructions and then we were off. I was scared to death of going up high where you can't see so we stayed at the flatter spots and I was getting thrown all over. I hated it and thought it was a waste of money but my husband thought it was a blast lol.

We rented and RZR for two hours and it was an incredible experience!! It was so much fun and so worth the price. The registration and check in was super easy, and the provided transportation to the dunes was great as well.

My only negative is the precautions for Covid. The staff at the desk was talking about cleaning everything which is great, but none of them wore masks. For the most part it was okay, but even the guy that helped you with your seat belts and stuff (obviously very close to you) did not wear a mask. I don’t think that should happen, especially now when masks are mandatory across the state.

I cannot recommend renting a Rzr at $375/hr +tax for two hours when you are unable to ride the big hills.

We were very exited to ride the sand dunes. However, Will Bills will not let anyone ride their machines up the big hills, which probably represent 45% of the area, and the most fun.... even after signing the waiver.

Riders are limited to what I call the kiddie area. This restriction was not pointed out on their website nor when I signed the waiver. I believe I technically signed off on it, but the man in the office did NOT point it out. It was my first visit to the dunes. Their guide told me someone was injured the previous week, but he said the real reason was they didn't want to lose another machine because of lost revenue.

Disappointed with Wild Bill’s ATV. My reservation was mistakenly cancelled by Wild Bill’s as they mixed my reservation up with someone else’s that called to cancel. We travels a long way to have this experience and they were unwilling to accommodate us, and didn’t want to correct their wrong. Interesting enough, my friends reservation was cancelled as well and she didn’t call either to request a cancellation. Anyone can call and cancel someone else reservation as they don’t take down confirmation number to confirm they are cancelling the correct group. I’m sure the experience would have been wonderful to have and they did actually refund our money to us but we REALLY just want to have the experience as this was our purpose of coming to Sliver Lake/Dunes. Very upsetting, but I guess that’s what 2020 is all about. Please becareful booking and don’t get your hopes up, you could be unexpectedly cancelled and you won’t be accommodate at all.

We rented from Wild Bills and found the atmosphere to be relaxed and their machines to be very powerful! We had no issues going up the tallest of hills in the RZR. You are a little more on your own and encouraged to really explore all the dunes. It was fun riding in the buggy on the way there and back also. There is a little less instruction but they are happy to answer questions. If you are experienced and do not need much guidance this is for sure the place for you. They have great apparel for sale as well - we purchased 3 shirts.

The RZR took a couple laps to get used to as it is more upright than the Maverick X3 we rented the day before - but once you got comfortable with the handling the power and tight turning radius were awesome to experience every part of the dunes!!!

We would rent again from them!

Rode and drove the RAZOR 1000 UTV. Oh man, insane fun and so worth the price. Wife and I had a ball. Both drove. Went on weekday and not too crowded even in early August. Absolutely loved it. Staff was great and super cool. Great stuff. Highlight of my summer. Cannot recommend this adventure enough. Way better than any other rental thing we have EVER done. Been all over the world and never laughed this much. Thank you everyone at Wild Bill's.

My hard to impress, teenage son loved it! He was grateful for Wild Bill's allowing him to use his learner's permit to still drive, with me in the car. Thank you for getting him out of the room, off the computer, and out with the wind in his hair! It had been years since we had been there, so he vaguely remembered it, plus, he wasn't driving then, so this was a great way for him to return. The Razor was fun, fully gassed up, and in great working condition. Grateful for the goggles to keep the sand from blowing in our eyes! Hard-working guides were helpful before we set out and helped us on the dunes find the hidden exit. It is worth it. We went on a Friday afternoon, and while there were many vehicles, it wasn't crowded or dangerous. We felt comfortably far from others and could still enjoy the freedom. We did see one vehicle that had flipped upside down, but if you drive safely, it is a safe outing. Love the views and the Lake Michigan beach.

ATV dune tour was sick! Wild bill’s staff was very helpful and understanding with first time riders. Definitely worth the trip, but smart to know that there are many big hills and bumps on the dunes. Overall, great trip and would recommend wild bills to any adventure-seekers!

The Dunes have always been an amazing experience in the past. As repeat customers, we were not informed that the course would be extremely limited. Same price for the limited experience. The dune patrol needs to be informed of their rider's experience level, so they are not charging at them and cursing at customers for riding too fast. If you want all your riders to ride at a beginner's level then you should adjust your governs.
