My boys, brother and I will be up there. Looking to find an area in the woods or someone's property that we can set up a pop up and my travel trailer. If anyone knows of a good place besides the over rated campgrounds let me know. Thanks and C U up there.

Taking the JP there for the first time on Memorial Day.

Have wheeled all over the country but never in the sand.

Any advice on prepping and/or packing?

I will be out there Saturday and Sunday, a small group of us are staying at the Sierra Sands Hotel. I plan on doing a lot of idiot watching, and probably make a few passed down the strip on my Raptor...hoping there will be some fast machines out there being the long holiday weekend.

As soon as you get there get vouchers for the times you want.
you need a flag on the front bumper 10' tall. You need a orv sticker and state park sticker or michigan plates with the park sticker.you can buy them all there.
Air down your tires as far as you dare.
Use just enough speed to break over the peak of the dunes, but be carefull not to go too fast and endo.some one does almost every time im there, it's better to go slow and back down, or get high centered, and pulled out then to total your rig.
Watch out,it's really busy on holiday weekends.someone all ways leaves in a ambulance,make sure its not you.watch out for bikes/quads,follow signs in directional areas.

have a blast,there is always some really cool stuff to see on a busy weekend.
Get a burger at BUBBA Q, i've been waiting all winter.
