Silver Lake State Park, Michigan

This was a road trip of past. We drove from Chicago to Silver Lake State Park on a week end for camping. Before going, I searched what are the activities we can do in the state park and I found, Silver Lake State Park is famous for dune riding. I would say this park has as much as dune riding fun as Coral Pink Sand Dunes State Park in Utah. Just out side the state park you can rent dune buggy or off road vehicles. This parking has an excellent swimming beach on the Michigan Lake and a historical light house, Little Sable Point Light house.

We reached there on Friday evening, next morning we went on beach. First we climb on the light house. It was so beautiful all around from the top. We went on beach after spending sometime on light house. Later in the afternoon we rented the ORV and did a guided adventure tour of dune riding. it was so much fun. Our guide was so expert in dune riding and one hour was full of fun. In the evening we came back to our camp site and spend a relaxing time. Next morning we headed back to Chicago. This was a one of memorable trip and if I get chance I would love to go there again. Here are few photos to share with you.
