AAA Editor Notes
Silver Lake State Park is off US 31 Hart or Shelby exit, then 7 mi. w., following signs. Of the park’s 2,936 acres, approximately 1,800 are covered in sweeping sand dunes. The dunes can be explored in off-road vehicles in the northern portion of the park or on foot in the center section. Silver Lake is a good place for swimming, fishing and boating. The 107-foot red brick Little Sable Point Light Station, built in 1873, overlooks a scenic portion of Lake Michigan. Lighthouse tours allow visitors to go up to the top of the structure.
Phone ahead for off-road vehicle area hours and specific rules.
Guided tours are available. Recreational activities are permitted.
