We offer a 40 minute tour of the Silver Lake Sand Dunes. We have a vehicle that holds about 20 people that goes on a seven mile trail in the dunes. We stop at Lake Michigan or Silver Lake for a few minutes for pictures and to enjoy the view.

Family of four. We debated about renting Vehicles vs taking the mac wood's tour. This was a reasonable option - especially comparing the price of renting vehicles - and the ride was a lot more exciting then we anticipated. Wish it was longer.

There is a state park close by on the lake and there is a cute little park with a picnic pavilion in town. It would be a very good idea to make a reservation for a large group,especially on a weekend

It can be compared to a roller coaster at times. The ride is smoother sitting in the front seat of the vehicle, compared to the back seat. It is a family ride, which we take all ages on. Hope this helps.

I'm not aware of any. We had a group of 14 and I think we paid full price. It's not cheap, but definitely worth the price, especially when compared to other attractions in the area (go-karts, zip-lines, etc.)
