Why we love Silver Lake:

As if over 2,000 acres of glistening sand dunes weren’t enough, there’s plenty left to love about life on Silver Lake.  This gorgeous, glimmering 690-acre inland lake is located along Lake Michigan’s majestic, sweeping shoreline, between Muskegon and Ludington in Mears, Michigan.   Best of all, it’s joined by none other than a nearly 3,000-acre state park, Silver Lake State Park, with mature forests and sand dunes stretching across the horizon as far as the eye can see.

Nothing but 2,000-acres of shimmering sand mountains separate Lake Michigan from this beautiful inland lake — and it’s all here, soaked in sun and ready to be enjoyed from your nearby lake home or cottage.

Silver Lake residents enjoy a life where screaming “I’m the king of the world!” from atop of a towering sand dune, riding a sand-spraying dune buggy, and building castles on the Lake Michigan shoreline are part of the everyday.  Combine this with the delights of nearby restaurants and shopping (and maybe even day-trips into the quaint nearby village of Pentwater) and you’ll have no trouble seeing why Travel & Leisure Magazine called Silver Lake Sand Dunes Area “One of America’s Best Little Beachtowns.”

If the adventurous life is calling you, you’ll love Silver Lake State Park’s nearly 450-acre off-road vehicle area.  Nearby miniature golf, boat and bike rentals, canoeing, golfing, shopping, and sightseeing all add to the picture of a perfect Pure Michigan escape, while miles of sandy beach and glittering shoreline paint the perfect backdrop for more than a little relaxation.
