Amazing Experience

What an amazing experience. We had so much fun riding the sand dunes. Staff was very friendly and knowledgeable taking the time to explain the instructions in detail. Safety was a priority for them which gave us confidence to go for it on the dunes. Highly recommend Silver Lakes Buggy for a fantastic time!

Great Time

Wonderful time, professional atmosphere and friendly staff. Give you directions, watch a very well done safety video and how to operate a orv, and off you go. The dunes are safe if you follow simple directional rules and respect. Really enjoyed ourselves a great way to see the dunes. Recommend to pack a snack and spend some time by the beautiful shore as well.

Awesome Experience

We had the best time on the dunes thanks to Terry! He took us on a tour and explained everything so we had the confidence and knowledge to have a great time. The rental process was easy and everyone we dealt with was super. Definitely recommend Silver Lake Buggy Rental!

We had so much fun on our 2 hour buggy rental. 2 adults and 2 kids all enjoyed the 4 seat Teryx. We had no previous experience but all the staff was helpful and pleasant. “Big Mark” gave us a great instructional tour on the dunes and checked in on us during the 2 hours. We felt safe and well informed. It was a great time and we highly recommend for others.

Great rental experience

The day we had booked we woke up to pouring rain and the radar showing rain all day. SLBR staff was great and rescheduled our booking to the next day without any hassle! When we arrived all staff from registration to shuttle drivers were wonderful! Prices were reasonable. Thank you for helping us have a great first experience at the Dunes!
