As soon as you walk in they have an amazing desert display. I pick out two before we even sit down. Food is great as well as staff. The tomato soup with the crusty bread top is sooo good.

Sightseeing

It is the most beautiful place. If you do the dune climb, it is worth the long walk/hike to Lake MI. Take some water with you... it gets hot.

This is my favorite beach. It is like being at the ocean but without the salt water and fear of sharks and jelly fish. If you are feeling ambitious take some firewood. You can have a fire on the beach in the sand in the evening. When you take the trail to the water, if you turn left there is a small creek for the little ones to play in if Lake MI is too much wave for them.
