Indiana Dunes State Park

This week we’ve been camping at Indiana State Dunes Park, not to be confused with the Dunewood Campground at Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore.

I tend to crop out other rigs from my photos, but even when I get a wider shot of this campsite, you’ll see there’s some decent space between our site and others.

There are some pretty intense hikes here, but since I’ve got bad joints, we stuck to the easy trails.

They’ve also built out some nice boardwalks. This one leads down to the beach.

Brian said I should have just asked the nuns for their photo, instead, I got a shot of their back.

Dinner Last Night:
Pasta Primavera with Cauliflower Alfredo Sauce. The alfredo recipe makes way more than you need, but we won’t mind having it a couple nights in a row.

2016 Cost of Camping:
26 nights free camping
130 nights paid camping (thru 6/5)
156 days this year
Total spent on camping this year: $3806.94
Daily average cost of camping: $24.40

    I grew up in NW Indiana and had many a field trips to Indiana National Dunes Lakeshore! Running down the sand dunes full bore, then loosing control of your legs and ending up in a front flip and having ears and scalp full of sand. LOL I didn’t know about the State Park though.

    I like the shot of the nuns backs; it’s artistic!

    Leigh – do you carry some sort of food processor in your Airstream? I don’t mind chopping by hand but some things (like getting cauliflower to become Alfredo sauce) might require more horsepower. If you do carry one, do you pack it up in any special way to keep it from breaking?

      Hi Carla, the only thing we have is an immersion blender which I use ALL the time. I use an asparagus steamer as my blender pitcher if I’m not using it in a sauce pan. Nothing breakable. Though pyrex would be fine.
