I loved this day getaway. Kayaking was awesome. Hiking was fun and just the right distance. I think they need to rework their maps which felt inaccurate. Great beach area. I am coming again. Lunch was very tasty and nice environment in the hotel.

Beautiful landscaping and private beach! Early in the morning, you can rent a boat and look at all of the unique homes around the lake. You will see tiny homes and celebrity mansions.

Pokagon is one of the nicest state parks. It has 9 walking trails varying in the difficulty. It also has the nicest staff in the Nature Center and through out the park. If you are not able to stay at the park, it least spend the day. No matter what time of the year you will find all kinds of things to do.

My extended family reunion was held here and we all had a great time. The lake is beautiful for kayaking and swimming. The ice cream in the snack bar was excellent. The food in the restaurants was also good. The hikes around the park and the nature center were very nice. The fire pit was a nice spot to enjoy conversation and s'mores after dark. The room was large and comfortable with all the usual amenities. The staff was friendly and helpful. All in all and perfect place to relax and be with family and friends.
