Silver Lake Sand Dunes

Getaway to the Silver Lake Sand Dunes of Michigan near Hart, Mears and Pentwater.

A beach paradise! Nestled along the shore of Lake Michigan and Silver Lake you'll find massive sand dunes, beach buggies—with the only sand dunes in Michigan where you can drive your own ORV—and miles of pristine shoreline beaches designed for pure family fun.

Encompassing the towns of Hart, Mears, and Pentwater, Silver Lake Sand Dunes Area is the perfect spot for a family vacation with miles of tree-lined bike trails, historic towns, a lighthouse and more. 

Spend the morning on the dunes, the afternoon in the water and finish your day in one of our charming villages for a relaxing dinner at a locally owned restaurant.

Time to come out and play at Silver Lake Sand Dunes!

Ride The Dunes
