Silver Lake Buggy Rentals is your headquarters for family-friendly off-road rentals at the Silver Lake Sand Dunes. Opened in 2001 by Mark and Judi Rippee, the rental shop provides guests the ability to explore the Silver Lake Sand Dunes and enjoy breathtaking views of Lake Michigan in a safe and exciting way. In recent years we have greatly expanded our facility and offer a greatly improved parking area for your comfort and convenience.

Free Safety Video

In an effort to help educate the public in regards to dune safety, we are offering free of charge to you an opportunity to view our safety video and speak with our experienced staff with any questions you may have. We also have available “Are you dune ready” literature provided by the DNR.

Corporate Functions

We have hosted several corporate functions and have received very positive feedback. With advanced reservations we can reserve our entire fleet for your outing. We suggest to do this in early Spring or after Labor day when the traffic is lighter in the ORV area. We are happy to work with you in many capacities to make your experience a pleasurable one. Please call (231) 873-8833 to speak to one of our experienced staff
