what redonkulous fees? toll is like $4.50ish each way. it only gets expensive if you get on the 407. plus you get to see beautiful ontario. what more could you want? cross at niagara falls and see the horseshoe falls. our side is better btw....

how are we gona meet up? is there a banner or something? i've never been there and if some one says, "we're meeting in the back parking lot then going in together" i'm not gonna know where the back parking lot is.

i know alot of you guys are staying at the campground and i'm a half hour out so i was just curious.

also i went to the silver lake site and it mentions something about vouchers. do i nee to buy one of these also or just the ORV sticker and park pass?

You wait to get the vouchers till Saturday. That's the only day you need one or Sunday, Weekdays are open. We can meet at the dune parking lot,campground, or gas station. Its a real easy place to figure out,its nice and small

Morris, I can get you a voucher Friday night so you have it the next morning. You have my cell number and we can meet up with you ahead of time before entering the dunes. Its a very small town and easy to navigate.
