Finally. . .On Vacation in Empire, Michigan!

We arrived at Indigo Bluffs just about 3 miles from Empire, Michigan. We took many two lane roads to get here, but most of them were pretty good, even in a motorhome. We had won a week stay at Indigo Bluffs last year and decided to use the stay this year since were were going to be "up in this neck of the woods!" 

Indigo Bluffs has two RV parks back to back. One is their "Resort" area where the sites are very large and separated from each other with beautiful wildflowers. The campground consists of much tighter sites and looks more like a typical public campground. We loved the spot we were in and it had pavers for both the coach and for us to sit on. An above ground fire pit is provided and firewood can be purchased for $5/bundle. We got one bundle and figured we would enjoy a fire later this week.

The roads into the resort are paved and make a great bike riding path. We got our bikes out and road throughout the resort and enjoyed the flowers and cooler weather. 

The first night we headed over to Glen Arbor and after walking over sand dunes for about 1/2 mile to the shore of Lake Michigan to take some photos at sunset (photo above), we ate at Arts Tavern. We had burgers, onion rings and fried smelt. That hit the spot! When we returned to the motorhome, we left the windows open for a cool nights sleep.
