Community & Chamber
Silver Lake and the Sand Dunes are at the heart of a network of communities who all share a love for West Michigan and the lakeshore. While our general area encompasses Hart, Mears, and Silver Lake, no matter where you go in the area, you’ll be greeted with our signature small town hospitality, warmth, and friendliness.
One of the largest industries in the area is agriculture. Anywhere you look, orchards will be either blooming or brimming with apples and cherries, trucks will be toting produce down the road, and supporting industries will be in full swing promoting the area’s farms.
But agriculture isn’t the only thing that makes this area thrive. From manufacturing and contracting, to marketing and communications, and from tourism to real estate, our self-sustaining community meets and exceeds the needs of our residents and visitors.
Come Visit Us!
The Silver Lake Sand Dunes area is halfway up the western coast of Michigan’s Lower Peninsula. You’ll find us nestled between the landmark cities of Muskegon (45 minutes to the south) and Ludington (40 minutes to the north). To visit us, take US-31 North and get off at Exit 149. Head east for Hart and west for Mears and Silver Lake.
