  • Silver Lake State Park in Michigan

    Introduction: What a great place! Have been going for years. Room for 40' motorhomes, a few pull thru sites, great location close to sand dunes, Silver Lake and Lake Michigan. Notes: We have found that many of their sites are listed with maximum sizes much smaller than you can actually fit on the site.
    Here is the official Silver Lake State Park Website for more info and reservations.


    A few pictures of the area (I have thousands if you're interested):

    Hookups: 30 amp electric at all sites that seems to be fairly reliable. Don't have full hookups but if you get a site close enough to a water spigot you can fill your fresh water tank, they have good water.

    Dump Station: Yes, 2 lanes but it's basically one at a time.

    Wi-Fi: No

    Cellular Service: AT&T works fairly well

    Pool:No

    Waterfront: One side of campground is on Silver lake

    Boat Launch & Docking: Small boat launch on Silver Lake

    Bathrooms/Showers: Yes, they can be very busy at times and staff can't keep up with cleaning them very well. Hot water for showers is hit or miss but seems to have been improved over the years.

    Activities: Playground and beach by the water.

    Attractions Nearby: Silver Lake Sand Dunes! Walk or bike to the small town with ice cream, general store, bakery, go carts, arcade, zip line, restaurants and lots of souvenirs.

    Summary: One of our favorite places due to the quaint little town and easy access to the sand dunes.

    Awesome post. All of these images and detail are useful for me and other visitors. The Silver Lake State Park is a nice attraction in Michigan. I never got a chance to visit it. After getting the detail, I will go there after finishing my island tours honolulu. After coming back, I will share my experience with you. Waiting for my reply.

      Was there this past Memorial Day weekend and lots of neat toys were out. The place was packed but with the new voucher-less system fully functional entry was fairly quick and easy for those that were "dune ready" with all three required stickers and flag.
