The Silver Lake Sand Dunes are located just one mile from our resort and offer tons of fun for the whole family!

Take a thrilling guided tour of the dunes with Mac Wood’s Dune Rides, or rent your own vehicle and take it for a spin! The Silver Lake Dunes are the only dunes in Michigan to permit personal ORVs on the sand.

ORV Info & Voucher System

One third of the dunes is dedicated solely to off-roading, which many families enjoy when they visit the area. To promote safety and a pleasant experience for all, the Silver Lake State Park requires that all off road vehicles meet specific safety standards and possess the appropriate documentation.

Make sure you’re “Dune Ready” by reading all of the necessary information and guidelines prior to your arrival.
