Drove up here to have dinner and got here too early so did a few of the parks. This one was the last one and we actually got sunset photos similar to the one shown on TA......nice.

What a place, Nice park and the best sunset views anywhere on the east side of Lake Michigan. Car ferry is right there so you can catch a glimpse of the ship too..
