Nordhouse Dunes was an amazing experience. This was our first time backpacking and the less than 2 mile hike was perfect for our maiden voyage. We took the Nurnberg Trail straight to the beach. Beautiful views all along the Lake Michigan coast. We were about 5 or 6 sites north of where the trail reaches the dunes and it was spectacular! There were two pre-defined campfire setups and we felt like we had our own private beach! Beautiful views of the lake from even the back of the site. It seems that this area is getting more popular, and especially on the weekends. We arrived late on a Friday morning and got lucky by finding a parking spot. The overflow was over a mile long down the main road. Saturday was much busier and even as we were leaving Sunday, the lot was still full. But, for just $5 a day to park, this spot is a must. Again, great for beginners to practice and get used to backpacking, and just as amazing for anyone look for a quick getaway!
