I remember visiting the Indiana Dunes when I was little, soon after my family had moved to Indiana. We were shocked to learn that there was a beach (like, a REAL beach) in the heart of the Midwest. So I was really looking forward to our camping trip to Warren Dunes State Park in Sawyer, Michigan, right along Lake Michigan. And our destination did not disappoint.
We started our trip on Thursday morning. We drove to Fair Oaks Farms, off Exit 220 on I-65 to give the arrow a little break from the ride. At Fair Oaks, we toured one of the nation's largest dairy farms. The arrow especially enjoyed the playground and the grilled cheese. Then we were back on the road for our final destination--Warren Dunes.
New Buffalo, another lakeside town, to get groceries and eat a quick dinner. We headed back to Warren Dunes and spent a beautiful evening at the beach. It was gorgeous and the arrow could have played in the small waves all night long.
Blue Plate Cafe. While our trip started with 90 degree temps, by this point, it was in the 40s. We drove to the Indiana Dunes State Park, and took a quick hike, but the blistery winds got the best of us, so we headed to Chesterton and enjoyed their European Farmer's Market. We ate lunch back at the campsite, and let the arrow take a nice long nap. That night we ate dinner out at a local sports bar so that my husband could catch some of the Notre Dame football game.
