Silver Lake Sand Dunes, Mears, MI -- Weekend of June 20th

A bunch of us Midwesters are going to Silver Lake Sand Dunes in Mears, MI
Here are links to the local area:
City of Silver Lake - Pure Michigan Travel
Silver Lake Sand Dunes Area, Silver Lake Michigan Hart, Mears, Pentwater Michigan
Welcome to Silver Lake Sand Dunes

In order to get into the dunes youíll need lower tire pressure, a flag, a state park permit and a Michigan ORV permit.
State Park link:
DNR - Silver Lake State Park Information
NOTE the voucher system info at the bottom of the DNR page. You must get a voucher for dune entry during weekends.

Some of us will be staying at Yogi Bearís which is a good family campground. They also have a house they split up and rent out as cabins.
Here is a link to Yogiís:
SILVER LAKE JELLYSTONE PARK

Hope to see some of you there!!

Ti, 5AT

Couple of questions? Where can you find the flags at? Can you buy the ORV at places that sell hunting licenses?

Re: Silver Lake Sand Dunes, Mears, MI -- Weekend of June 20th

I got mine off the internet . Go here first ,
www.mdnr-elicense.com - Welcome to E-License
then click on " List of licenses " and scroll down to Type 105 - ORV preprinted . Fill out form , etc. License will arrive in the mail about 7 day's later .
Flags used to be available at the store near the dunes entrance , don't know if they still carry them .

Flags are available all over the Silver Lake area!

The ORV sticker can be purchased at Bass Pro shops, Dicks sporting goods, and probably Gander Mountain stores, call first to check. Also the flag MUST be mounted to the FRONT of the vehicle!!!

I will be camping starting Wednesday the 17th and will be there through the weekend. I'm meeting up with about 50 people who have these,



We will be there all weekend by the dune exit on the border of the pedestrian dunes. At least two of us have FJ's.
I hope a bunch of forum members can make it, the dunes are a BLAST!!!

Rick

Cool. I saw some RC cars while I was there last July but did not see you. Where are you camping?
