Silver Creek RV Resort

We rented a camper at this resort
It had a lot of amenities such as a large pool, playground, trails, camp store, paved roads with grassy lots, and more.
They also offer cottage rentals and campsites as well.

Golden Township Beach

This is a small but unique beach
Small Parking Lot right outside of the entrance right before the Little Sable Point Light House
Short walk
Silver Creek flows into Lake Michigan right here making it a great area for kids to play
No cost

Dune Climb

Starts with a flight of stairs
At the top you could walk miles of dunes.
There is a view of Silver Lake.
There is a view of Lake Michigan if you walk further that way.
It was difficult with our kids ages (3 and 1) but the view was worth it.
Baby Carrier Recommended.
