While camping at nearby Pokagon, I decided to come here to go fishing. This is a very beautiful, quiet, peaceful spot that is very relaxing to just fish for a few hours and disconnect from the world.

Trine State Recreation Area is managed by Pokagon State Park and it seems to play Cinderella to its sister park, getting the leftover funding and staffing. We considered staying there but literally could not find any information on the cabins. Even the park brochure lists...More
