Great time at Silver Lake, MI

Loving our first time at Silver Springs RV Park in Silver Lake, MI


DW working hard on crochet, and more importantly the Heavy Chevy all aired down and flagged up = DUNE READY!


In the Dunes looking at a pretty daunting Test Hill on a busy Saturday
Plenty of trucks not doing so well on Test Hill today.


Made it to the TOP.


I think you 'can see Russia' from up here


...and it carried my family of 5 up too. Love that 6L Vortec power!


Looking forward to a week of camping and fun in the sand with family in beautiful western Michigan.

Thanks for sharing your wonderful trip with the rest of us, it looks like it was a lot of fun. I wish more forum members would post about their RVing trips.

Looks like a nice place. We were camping not far from you in Ludington State Park. What an awesome weekend.

Just my opinion but West Michigan is hard to beat in the summer. Silver Lake is one of our favorite spots. Enjoy and be safe. You do need to tow that rig home with that truck.

That's exactly what I told myself - don't break it because you depend on it. It's Chevy, and it hasn't failed me yet, so my confidence level is high. I'm not about beating on my equipment, so I did take it easy.
My brother has the silver 2007 Duramax in one of the pictures, and he is with us in his 39' Sandpiper 5er.

Six or seven years ago we camped at Holiday Park Campground, which is right on Silver Lake at the south end. It was an Airstream park where sites could be purchased. Many Airstreams were there permanently, but everything was very nice and well landscaped. I guess we were renting a space from one of the transient site owners. The clubhouse was not open to us non-members, which we didn't mind at all. It was a beautiful place.

I just looked at their website again, and there was no mention of Airstreams or private ownership of the sites. Not sure what they are doing now. Maybe some of you Michiganders know.

Silver Lake

You will never get all the Sand out of all the wrong places by taking you TV on those Dunes. I have going to the dunes, with a Sand Rail for years and know what I have to take apart every time we are there. Been a VW Master Tech many yrs. It is a fun place to go but You should rent a Buggy and keep your TV off those Dunes if you want it to last many happy towing miles. Just my input for others thinking about this.
