Since they turned Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore into Indiana Dunes National Park, it moved up our must-do list.
Funny that living in Michigan for so many years, and driving past it multiple times, it never warranted a stop before.
It’s not just dunes and the beautiful beaches of Lake Michigan – there’s also some history with multiple homesteads and of course you can’t miss The Chicken!
We did a pretty thorough job of exploring the park, and overnighted at a place called the Weko Beach Campground a little bit north of the Park.
Boy, was this an eye-opener to the summer beach vacation crowd!
We booked last minute, and got 1 of 2 available spots. Luckily the Pod is pretty small, because we were sandwiched in between a pop-up trailer and 2 girls in a tent. So close that our slideout was hanging over the neighbor’s fire pit. Good thing they didn’t have fire plans that night!
Weko Beach is all about location, location, location. A few steps from the sandy shores of Lake Michigan, with its beautiful sunsets – it’s easy to see why this place is packed out in the summer.
Another National Park under the belt!
If Donald Trump was reincarnated as a chicken, this Golden Silkie would be him.
Not a great photo, but had to show the Sugar Boss Brother-In-Law-Bob how the old timers did their sugar shacks.
Colette spends a little time reflecting and listening to the waves crash on the shore of Lake Michigan.
A storm moves south of us, providing nice wave action on Lake Michigan.
You’d never guess that this was Lake Michigan and not the Gulf of Mexico!
I Love Weko
Good marketing on the part of the Weko Beach folks.
