Indian Lake State Park

Camped at Indian Lake State Park just outside of Manistique, Michigan, and were treated with a beautiful sky. This park is near Kitch-iti-Kipi (The Big Spring).

Day 315: Bokeelia, FL Sunny and warm. By noon there was no breeze, so we packed a lunch and went for a boat ride. I suggested Cayo Costa State Park. We learned about this park when we first arrived in the area, I think from Ray the homeowner. The park is an island and there... Continue Reading →
