You will need a bike to get anywhere, such as the nearby beach, which is really pleasant and not overcrowded due to lack of public access by car! The best soft serve ice cream 🍦 is at the gas station near the entrance to the park!

The beach is the best part about this campground area!!!A great place to relax and watch the sunset!

Great place. We used only the walk-in camping site, which I highly recommend unless you have a camper or trailer. Walking distance to beautiful beaches along Lake Michigan. Great biking area, too. 1.5 hours from Chicago but a lovely place with nice people all around

We stayed here on 7/26/17
Nicely laid out campground with plenty of trees and nice flat picnic areas in between small forested hills. You can walk to the little convenience store located at the entrance of the park. There is a train station as well that I believe gets you into Chicago.

If you feel like going for a hike it's about 30 minutes to the beach down the neighborhood street, and it is much less crowded than the state park where people can drive much closer.

Plenty of hikes to drive to along the shoreline.

Picnic and camp areas are separated from vehicle camping in each site, but there is plenty of parking.Shore is a 30 minute hike from the camp.
