2011 Spring/Summer Silver Lake Sand Dunes Trip (June 16-19)

Ok figured I would get this rolling. I know we had a few discussion threads on the date and decided to change it to June 16-19 (Thursday-Sunday) I know some like to come on Wednesday too thats fine too.

Here's the info copied and edited from the previous years thread:


Quote:

SILVERLAKESTATE PARK OFF-ROAD VEHICLE AREA
9679 W State Park Road
Mears, Michigan 49436
Information: 231-873-3083

Hours
May 16 - Labor Day it is open 9:00 a.m. - 10:00 p.m.



Camping is at SILVER LAKE JELLYSTONE PARK

SILVER LAKE JELLYSTONE PARKô
8239 W. Hazel Rd.
Silver Lake, MI 49436
Call (231) 873-4502

Costs!

A few members are staying at Hotel due to bad backs, or GF that dont like camping or because they are women!


The hotel is located across the street and down about a 1/8th of a mile from the camp ground.

we are staying at:

Silver Sands Resort

Website: http://silversandsresort.net/

8446 W Hazel Rd
Mears, MI 49436
Phone: 231-873-3769





State Park Entry
An annual pass to all Michigan State Parks is $24; a daily pass is $6. Non resident are $29.00 per year and $8.00 per day. Senior annual passes for $6.00. An ORV pass for vehicles (also required for access) costs $16.25 and is good for a full year. Non-residents will also need a "Sportsmans Pass" which is $1 and is good for life. The ORV pass can be purchased with CASH only. The ORV pass and Flags are available at any gas station in town.

State park permits must be purchased at the park. I would suggest cash because if there is no one at the gate you must purchase one from a ranger that is roaming the park.


Orange Flags are $20 and MUST be mounted on the front of the truck. Mounts are available for under $20 from the same places that sell the flags.


Go-Cart ridding so bring some extra cash to waste! LOL

You are responsible for your own camp site.

Responsible for your own FOOD!!!!!

You need a flag, orv sticker, and state park pass to get into the dunes.... ORV sticker and State park can be bought at the Dunes.
Prices are probably a bit different.

this thread is for discussion head count will be later in the year. Please try to call within the next month and get your reservation! Sometimes it goes fast!!!!
