im goin up there this weekend with the tj and a few quads. I think the ORV sticker is $16.95, get it ahead of time, the ones they sell at the dunes fall apart quickly. You also need a State Park sticker, which i think you have to buy there. For the Jeep, the flag has to be on the front, and be over 10 ft. tall

i plan on going there again this summer too. it'll be my first time with the Jeep there, where do you guys mount them in front? I remember they used to sell mounting brackets there, but they were on the expensive side.

yes u can if you choose to buy your ORV sticker there or u can buy them at miejers or any walmart too

i think its 16.50 for orv and 6.00 for daily pass
and a packed lunch unless you want to eat at the resturant there just before the dunes which has really good food for a cheap price

oh yeah you have cool looking jeep is that a 4inch lift ?

I have never been to Silver Lake and would like to run there for a Saturday. I know it gets busy and would never consider doing it on a holiday weekend but does anyone have any other tips?
