is a nice hiking trail to the beach, or you can take the paved path, which meanders through the day use picnic area before dropping you out at the beach. Once at the beach, you will find a pavilion with restrooms, lifeguard tower, and food trucks to satisfy your hunger and quench your thirst. We stayed two nights here, and lucky for us, our stay over the weekend just before the Fourth of July included a spectacular fireworks show over Lake Michigan. While at the beach, you will have views of the Chicago skyline, which as sunset are stunning. If you want to head into the city, just outside of the park (a quick drive or couple mile bike ride) you will find the train that takes you into Chicago. We found our two night stay was not long enough to explore both the National Park's grounds, accessible by a bike path, and the city, and we wished we had another night to give us the time to do so. If geocaching is a hobby of yours you will also find several caches within the campground, and probably some friendly folks at the store to help you if you're stumped. We loved this stop on our cross country journey and plan on visiting again to explore even more of the park's attributes.
