My family has been camping in Muskegon for about 50 years and this was the first trip that we tried renting dune buggies. It was amazing, probably one of the funnest days of my life.

We showed up t...o the Silver Lake Buggy Rental shop with a group of about 20, all ages and sizes. A group like this is going to take some time to coordinate but they knocked it out as quickly as imaginable. Everyone at the shop was very friendly and they really made an effort to make the instructional part fun and laid back.

Not having done this before, I figured this would be pretty much on par with go karting. Driving up the main entrance hill as the track widened out I thought, "okay, this is a little more involved than I thought", and then arrived at the top where the dunes open up. It's a truly spectacular sight, massive dunes and a landscape that resembles pictures I've seen of Dubai, or Tatooine. And once we got up there, it was on.

The course, 4000 acres as I understand it, is laid out very well and once you get familiar with the layout and flow of traffic it's just an absolute blast. You can fly down hills, drift on the flats, it's just a huge playground. There were a number of trucks, dirt bikes, and ATVs out there as well but everyone really seems to make an effort to stay out of each other’s way. Getting confident in the buggy took about twenty minutes, my nephew and I got stuck a few times, but we had fun figuring it out.

My brothers, cousins, their children, and I raced around for an hour and a half like kids, with their kids, and everyone had a great time. The staff at Silver Lake Buggy Rental have a great place with some top notch people. We will definitely return next year, and plan on this becoming a routine stop. Thanks so much for a truly remarkable family outing!

We've rented from SLBR for the last two years. They are very informative & take you on a guided tour of the dunes so you know what you're doing, where to go, where not to go, & how to get "unstuck", ...which happened to me in the first five minutes! M2 was a great guide. He was very friendly & helpful. I did feel bad (& uncomfortable) during the time he was showing us around because some other male employee was talking to him on the CB radio & was quite rude. M2 handled him very professionally, even after the guy continued to speak to him in a condescending manner. See More

Friendly and fun staff, good instructions and fun fun fun on the dunes. Buggies have enough power if you drive them correctly. We never got stuck and those who did were helped out by the staff very qu...ickly.
I would recommend them to anybody who wants to experience the dunes first hand.

We had a great time in the buggy we rented, and they even gave us a hand with our family scavenger hunt. Thanks again, and we'll be seeing you next summer.

Amazing place to rent buggys! My friends and I had an awesome time. We had never been to the sand dunes before, and our instructor, Jackie, was awesome and gave us a full tour of the area and explaine...d everything to us clearly and concisely. Will definitely be back and will rent from them again. See More

Don't rent the dune buggies, they don't climb the dunes. Very unhappy with not being told that. Wasted money.
Won't go back there. Previously rented a Polaris Razor from another company. I'm going ...back there next time. See More

Nice experience. Friendly crew.

The early bird is especially great, because the dunes are empty.
