Silver Lake requirements

I'm looking at heading up for the first weekend in May this year, any help sorting out requirements would be helpful. Will be trailering a street legal yj from PA. I would hope to unload at the hotel and just drive over.

I've read through the Michigan dnr pages but it's still clear as mud. What vouchers, permits, and stickers do I need? I understand I need a flag, I'll be getting that mounted before I leave home.

Make sure the flag is not mesh. It must be solid fabric. And I'm sure you read the height requirement.

You will require an ORV License, a Trail Permit, and a Michigan State Park Pass. You can buy the first 2 any sporting goods store or a store with sporting goods section (Meijer, Walmart, etc.) for a total of $36. State park passes cost $10 for residents.

Yeah, it's a total ripoff.

And maybe someone else can clarify this. I could have sworn that when the DNR introduced the price increase that there was a scenario for Jeeps where you did not need both an ORV License and a Trail Permit. Now there is no scenario where you don't need both (except for driving on ice, and nobody is going to do just that.)

You can also pick up the needed stickers at what they call the DNR welcome center, or BNL motorsports who also has flags. Both are near the dune entrance. Just make sure to Air your tires down and put your stickers on before you enter the dunes. Other Duners and the DNR can be vicious if you don't.

There is a good chance I will be up that weekend also.

Designated ORV routes do not require a trail permit nor an ORV license if the vehicle is registered by the Michigan SOS, as I understand it. Scramble areas, such as Silver Lake, require both.

I have not purchased either permit since the price increase because I've not gone to an area that required it.

Yes, I agree. ORV routes still do not require stickers for "vehicles licensed by the SOS". But I thought there was some scenario where licensed vehicles had to only buy one of the 2 stickers. Guess not.
