Welcome To The DUNES

Your Silver Lake Bucket List

There is so much to do when you stay at the Chunky Monkey. The Silver Lake area provides fun and entertainment for the Adrenalin Freak as well as the Art Connoisseur. Please enjoy our bucket list that was created just for you. 



Silver Lake is the Dune capital of the east and no where this side of the Mississippi will you see more exciting Dune Buggys, Quads and Offroad vehicles! You can ride hard all morning  then pull over for a quick dip into  crystal clear Lake Michigan and go back and challenge the Dunes or chill along more than a mile of Lake Michigan Beach.

Mac Woods Dune Rides

Motorsports not your thing? Then take the whole family just up the road to Mac Dunes for a “Topless” tour of the Dunes. Mac Dunes has been revealing the ever changing Dune landscape to generations of travelers. Don’t Miss This One!
