Owner description: The excitement of Silver Lake starts at Parrot's Landing, with recreational rentals for great family fun on the sand and water. Take on the Silver Lake Sand Dunes in a rugged Jeep, quad, or dune buggy. If you enjoy the water, ski or tube across the many nearby lakes while being towed by one of our ski boats. For even more action, launch a powerful Jet Ski Wave Runner into the waves of Lake Michigan.

“Dunes were great”
Reviewed August 4, 2013 via mobile

Went on hour tour then kept the jeep for an additional hour and that was nice. The guide showed us where to go so when we stayed we knew where to go.

“Lots of fun!”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

We did this tour when we went, and we really had a good time. It's fun interacting w/the tour guide and the other people on the tour.

NOT trying to be negative, but I will say that it's possible you will hit some bumps/dips in the sand which can be hard on someone with a bad back (my personal experience). SO...be cautious.

I would definitely recommend this attraction though. It's a great way to experience the dunes with someone who gives you instruction on what to do, and you don't have to worry about obtaining permits or possibly messing up your own vehicle.

“Driving the dunes”
Reviewed July 25, 2013

the dunes were very enjoyable; because you get to drive your own jeep; following one driven by a guide. There were 5 Jeepsfollowing our guide who communicated with us via radio; he was exteremly intertaining and we did things we problably wouldn't have if we out there alone. highly recommend the tour

“Skip Mac Dunes Ride and go here!!”
Reviewed July 24, 2013

A few years ago we took Mac Dune Rides. soso. This year we took the tour from here. AWESOME!!! The kids loved it. Hubby loved driving the jeep. You get to experience the dunes so much better. For the 5 of us to rent the jeep was just a little more than having someone else drive. But well worth it! Did the 2nd tour of the day and traffic was not bad.
Hubby is 6'6" and fit in the jeep just fine

“Another fantastic visit!”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

After our great experience last summer, we had to come back to Silver Lake again this year. Brought my GF and her two children with us, bringing the total of people to seven this time. We rented a boat for half a day to do some tubing, and then rented a Jeep for the sunset tour. Words can't express how great the crew at Parrot's Landing are. Dutch bent over backwards to accommodate our group, and Bill was an excellent guide for the sunset Jeep tour. Our family loved the trip, and we will definitely be back next year. Thanks!
