Last year the Silver Lake State Park Voucher Center became the new ORV Welcome Center. The Welcome Center is the place for customers to purchase their Recreation Passports and/or an ORV permit. Changing the location of where to purchase the passports and permits was made to help the traffic coming through the dune entrance move at a steady pace. Another big change was eliminating vouchers and making sure that vehicles were “Dune Ready” and able to drive right up to the dunes. They still had the parking lot vouchers available, but they were limited. Local consensus seems to be these were positive changes that made the process for getting on the Dunes a better experience.
