Pontiac Lake State Park - IT'S NOT IN PONTIAC!
We finally got out into a state park for a couple of night this past weekend - we've camped here before so we knew the layout. It truly is one really nice park - and thankfully not at all overcrowded. From speaking to one of the DNR people, she explained that it's likely that a lot of people associate this park with Pontiac - hence the slogan above! Although maybe we shouldn't publicize it.
Our camping area was great - grassy, spacious, a couple of trees for partial shelter. And, unlike last year at Hudson Lake, there were not too many bugs.
Activities were as follows - Friday evening - tent setup, food (chili), fire, relaxation, and a couple of beers. Saturday breakfast (Chili - for me anyway), then fishing - the DNR had put on some fishing demonstrations for the kids - it was really good. Then lunch, then beach - swimming and splashing - then a big long hike in the woods, then dinner then relaxation. Sunday was breakfast, then a DNR mammal education thing for the kids, then tent packing and home. Nice!
So, here are some random poorly taken photos.
All in all, it was a great weekend - quiet park, nice weather, fun for big people and kids, and the great outdoors.
