Modern, clean and safe campground. Staff is friendly and professional. Fantastic location. Lots are large and scenic. Each lot has a cement pad with a gravel driveway, picnic table and fire ring. Fire rings are well designed with air holes and can flip up for easy cleaning. The hookups are well placed and easily accessible. Their camp store is well stocked and has reasonable prices. They also have an ice cream parlor and great kids pool and playground. Plus you get a fabulous location near sand dunes, lakes, bike path, hiking, horseback riding, golf, and campground activities. You couldn't ask for a nicer campground.

This was our first trip to Dunes. We had a wonderful stay. We chose a site on the lake and we are glad we did. Beautiful! The campground is very clean and modern. Very family friendly with rules in place to ensure this. We did not have to worry about parties, drinking, or overly loud neighbors. Lots of Covid guidelines put in place. We LOVED the cleaning stations at the playground. The staff is VERY friendly and accommodating. We had a slight emergency while staying and the staff was very accommodating and made sure we were taken care of. You can tell their goal is to serve their customers. Silver Lake Dunes and Lake MI are nearby for great fun. There are activities in the campground such as horse back riding, kayaking, fishing, take and make crafts, archery, and from my understanding even more when Covid is not happening. Plenty to do! The pool was small and a little chilly....we only tried it one time because it did tend to get very crowded and we are trying to avoid crowds right now. (That would probably be my only complaint. There wasn't enforcement of Covid there.) Internet and cell service are spotty there, but not a deal breaker for us because we were on vacation and try to unplug. Staff helped us with phone service due to our emergency. Someone mentioned that they will be installing more towers. That will help tremendously for people who would enjoy longer stays. This was definitely one of our favorite campgrounds and we will definitely return!

We love the large campsites, the friendly staff, the ice cream shop, swimming pool,, and all the activities that keep the kids busy. We have been going here since they have opened and plan on returning every year. We really wish they had seasonal, but everyone should get to enjoy this great campground.

This is our 3rd time staying at Dunes Harbor, and our 2nd visit this year. We love that the campsites are large, very clean and well maintained. The shower houses are immaculately kept, which is very important during this time of uncertainty with COVID-19 potential exposure. The camp is very close to the Silver Lake ORV site. We are already looking forward to staying at the campground next season!

Our family loves Dune’s Harbor. Especially the pool, ice cream, and friendly staff. We’ve been here twice, and we’ll be back again. There’s also so many fun things to do in the surrounding area. Sand dunes, bike rides, lighthouses, horseback riding, volleyball, Craig’s cruisers, restaurants, and gift shops.
