15 Reviews of Silver Lake State Park
Great for the ORV trails

Campsites were pretty standard - fire-ring, picnic table, electrical hookups, but I don't think there was a parking pad. Restrooms & showers were clean. There's a boat ramp in the campground, and a little general store a short walk away. The off-roading was a blast, and there are places to rent jeeps if you don't own a vehicle that can handle it.

The engine revving on the main road and the partying at the campground consistently went pretty late into the night. Even with it being a little noisier than we were expecting, we had a good time. We probably won't be making it back to this campground though.

Silver Lake State Park

Silver Lake offers sandy dunes for off roading, a beach for swimming and trails. There are many camping sites in which the terrain varies. Restrooms are cleaned daily and there are showers. Silver Lake is a pretty popular park so it can get noisey if you go on a holiday weekend so plan ahead if you want a quieter visit.

lots of off road vehicles

sites: some sites on water. not very private/some trees. many shaded sites. sandy sites. can get noisy. amenities: quite busy. other attractions: metal detecting popular. lighthouse. beach. off road vehicle trails. dunes. swimming. tourist town near. I would go back again.

Great park and close to dunes

A great location on the west side of michigan with dune or brewpubs to enterain. Great beach at the the campground and boat launch. Great care on the bathrooms with cleanings daily and seperate showers. Great huge trees with shade which makes it cooler at the park than it really is. Great truck with firewood in evenings and so much to do in the dunes with my Jeep I love it here

First to Review
My favorite place on earth.

I have been coming to this campground since birth, so for 30 years now. My family has come here since the 70s. The park is in a great location, within walking/biking distance of town. They have a beach for swimming and a boat ramp as well. The bathrooms are cleaned each day and there are plenty of individual showers. The sites are big. The only downside is they are almost all dirt and the trees are large and many so not much sun gets into the campground. It can feel much cooler in the park than outside of it. But that's not a big deal because you will probably not be there much during the day. There is so much to do around silver lake. Renting boats or ORVs, go karting, biking, shipping, Mac Woods dune rides, walking on the dunes, swimming, going to Little Sable Point lighthouse, getting ice cream at Whippy Dip, the list goes on and on. There are a few other campgrounds in town but this is by far the best value and location. They have a firewood truck that drives around and sells wood. Also there is a party store just down the street for any other needs.
