  • I think they call it Sleeping Bear because compared to Silver Lake Sand Dunes they are so boring it puts you to sleep. This place is beautiful. You can ride/rent dune buggies/ATV/ranger and go for a f...  more »

  • We ride down here on road bikes in teh summer from Ludington. It's a nice 70 mile out and back with water at the state park and a break at the lighthouse.  more »
  • One of the most impressive places I´ve ever been in my life. The dunes are just incredible! This place is absolutely a must!
  • We love this place! ATVs aren't allowed on here, but you don't need one to enjoy this sandy paradise. This side of the dunes is more for the naturalist in all of us. There are a couple thousand acres of rolling sand hills to hike around on. When you reach the tops you get a nice view of both Silver Lake and Lake Michigan. Out in the distance the ATV park can be seen while the riders ascend the tops of the hills into view, only to vanish moments later into the sandy valleys. Boats are cruising the lakes while families enjoy the beaches for some much needed cool off time. Once you've taken everything in you can ride the sand slides back down to the foothills.
  • Bring or rent a 4x4 or dune buggy and drive around on the dunes. Be warned you can break your ride if you get too crazy. The rest of the park is nice for hiking or a day at the beach. It can get really crowded at times. So I would not recommend this park if you are trying to find solitude, quiet and get in touch with nature.
  • Lots of fun for the whole family! Great swimming are th as t isn't too deep for the kids thanks to the ever shifting sand dunes. Helpful and friendly staff. Bring your boat, camping gear or just the kids. Everyday is beautiful!
  • It was wonderful! The history, the views, and the activities are great! Too busy though around Labor Day
