Had a blast at the dunes! Loved that it wasn’t busy. And it was fun seeing what people had to drive in the sand. Hope to come back next fall!

A gift of nature! Ever changing and amazingly clean. Fun just to watch the dune buggies do crazy crazy maneuvers. To walk to the ridge closest to Lake Michigan and watch the sun set...makes the entire world seem beautiful!

You can walk, dune buggy, or just go to the beach. We had grand kids and rented a 5 seat buggy and made a ton of memories.

Always a good time. Need to make sure and air down your tires. Very good time to be had with friends. Take a camera or gopro. Fun in the sand and a lot of places to explore.
