Silver-Lake is located in Oceana County near Lake Michigan and the towns of Hart and Shelby. Silver Lake State Park is a 3000-acre park eight miles west of Hart and approximately 36 miles north of Muskegon. This area includes both sand dunes and mature forestland, and the park contains four miles of Lake Michigan shoreline plus a large sandy beach. What draws people to Silver Lake Park are the 1200 acres of sand dunes for exploration and hiking, and the 450-acres of land available for off-road vehicles. Other activities include swimming, biking, sailing, canoeing, fishing, and horseback riding. Enjoy golf at an 18-hole championship course set amid rolling hills along the Lake Michigan shoreline. You can shop for antiques or visit the Silver Lake Mall, and eat take-out, or dine at casual restaurants or fine dining. Oceana County is the asparagus capital of the world, and the towns of Hart and Shelby host an annual National Asparagus Festival, usually held in June. Other points of interest in the Silver Lake area include the Little Sable Point Lighthouse, Lineal State Park and the lakeside villages of French Town, Little Point Sable and Stony Lake. The Silver Lake Sand Dunes are open to the public from April 1st through October 31st.

Silver Lake Weather & Climate

West-Southwest Michigan on the Lower Peninsula has four seasons where summers are warm with cool nights and winters are cold with snow. Lake Michigan helps modify temperatures, keeping them cooler in late spring and early summer and warmer during late fall and winter than in other parts of the Midwest. Showers and thunderstorms are common in spring and summer, and precipitation is generally evenly distributed during the crop season of April through September. The lake also acts as a giant humidifier, increasing moisture content in the air throughout the year. However, extremely hot and humid summer days are not that common and don't last long in this part of the state. Snowfall varies greatly from winter to winter.
