your street tires will be fine, i had my MT's down to about 8 psi and they still dug in, the guys running street tires were doing better than me


you can get the ORV and the other sticker right at the entrance and on weekends you need a voutcher that place is right up the street


I caught the jeep thing..........
now my wife wont give my wallet back

you will be fine with the tires you have.. the mac woods dune rides use airplane tires (bald like slicks) and actually the less tread the better because you dont dig in. i have been there every year many times since i was 16, all you need is state park sticker ($6 bucks for a daily) an orv sticker ($16.25 for a yearly) a rectangle orange flag at least 10 feet off the ground on the front of your jeep, and gas. You will not have to sign any waivers or anything. keep your tires closer to 10psi and you will go anywhere. Also like everyone else said stay out of the water holes, they will swallow your jeep whole, I have seen it many times.

BE SAFE AND HAVE FUN!!!!
ITS A BLAST UP THERE I JUST WAS THERE FRIDAY NIGHT WITH MINE.

Your stock cherokee will do just fine. although it is more fun in a lifted cherokee (I have about 5 to 5.5 inches of lift and 31s) but you can still go anywhere with the stock cherokee, its all about tire pressure
