McCormick’s Creek Falls, Indiana . Our elementary school took every sixth grade class here for a weeklong camping trip every spring. We'd go wading in the river, spelunking & all sorts of fun things! Do schools do things like that any more.
Pack a variety of gear to enjoy Lake Michigan activities: a swimsuit for the beach at Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore, hiking shoes for the trails of Indiana Dunes State Park and an appetite for comfort food.
