Silver Lake Sand Dunes Beaches
A multitude of beautiful beaches await you in the Silver Lake Sand Dunes area. Whether you’re looking for wild excitement, or quiet serenity, there’s a spot reserved just for you! 

Silver Lake Sand Dunes Parks
Silver Lake State Park is a 3,000-acre park along four miles of Lake Michigan shoreline. Unique to this park is the 450-acre parcel designated for off-road vehicles, and the access to both Silver Lake and Lake Michigan are an added benefit. The 107′ Little Sable Point Lighthouse is located in the Silver Lake State Park, and it is open for tours from late May to late September. Rolling sand dunes, camping, hiking, fishing, and acres of forest make this park a vacation paradise.

Silver Lake Sand Dunes State Park is one of the few areas in the country that users can still enjoy riding freely on sand dunes. These shifting dunes promise a different terrain every time you visit them.

Parrot’s Landing
Travis Parrot and his family invite you to Parrot’s Landing, located in the beautiful Silver Lake Sand Dunes Area. Nestled between the shores of Lake Michigan and Silver Lake in Oceana County, this is the place for fun in the sun.

Hart-Montague Bike Trail/Rail Trail State Park
This paved rail-trail stretches for 22.5 miles over 225 acres between Hart and Montague. Opening in 1991, a local citizen had bought the old railroad corridor for trail use and donated most of it to the State.

Historic Downtown Hart
Remove yourself from today’s hectic world as you tour the Hart Historic District. Visit a 19th century church, where the basement houses the extensive “Seymour Rider Indian Artifacts Collection.” 

Snowmobile Trails
When the snow flies in the Silver Lake area, winter enthusiasts have plenty of activities to keep them busy during the cold months. Skaters and bicyclists abandon the Hart-Montague Bike Trail, in favor of snowmobiles and cross country skiers.
