Warren Dunes SP dog beach!

While we are very unimpressed with the campground (and the unfriendly employees) at this park, we were happily surprised to see that they have a dog swimming area on the far end of the beach. It doesn't seem to be well publicized (or I just missed it in researching the trip) so I wanted to put the info out on TA.

The hot sunny weather we're having is perfect for hanging out at the beach with the dog boy!

Hey, I am so glad Dog Boy is having/had a great romp thru the water and on the beach. Bet everyone had a blast!

We are not fond of Warren Dunes SP either, though I cannot remember much about the people working there. I do remember the "alcohol police aka park rangers" searching out illegal alcohol possession. And the site across the street was a sight (pun intended) to behold. They made them empty their trunks (all 3 cars), they checked their tents, coolers...and of course, found some! And all of it was taken. The campers didn't say a word, until they left, of course. LOL. A long time ago it was. However, I was glad they were doing their job and following thru carrying out the rules of the campground, but they were a bit ruthless. One visit (we used to camp there quite a bit when I was a kid) for us was enough. We have used their day use area a couple of times when we were not camping in the campground, but it was crazy there. Lots of people from Chicago getting relief from the big city and heat.

OH-hello to ST and Mrsj---I didn't mean anything negative there about Chicago citizens.... :) :) :)!!
