Let's Get on the Road and Drive!

In an effort to get out of the house and onto the road, LCC Detroit has organized a drive down to the northeastern-most corner of Indiana on Saturday, August 8. There, we’ll get out and stretch, then enjoy some of the amenities of Indiana’s Pokagon State Park:


“Pokagon State Park is located near Angola, just off I-69 and is so-named to honor the rich Native American heritage of the state and region. Leopold and Simon Pokagon were father and son and the last two most notable leaders of the Potawatomi. The park’s Potawatomi Inn takes its name from these Native Americans, who made their home in the area. 


“Being one of the state’s original parks, Pokagon features the unique work of the Civilian Conservation Corps, whose members lived and worked at Pokagon from 1934 to 1942. The “boys of the CCC” built the beautiful stone and log structures that dot the park landscape and provide accent to the rolling wooded hills, wetlands and open meadows. The park is framed by Lake James and Snow Lake, which offer abundant opportunities for boating, swimming, fishing and scenic sunsets.”  There is a $9 park entrance fee per vehicle.


We’ll leave from Frog Island Park in Ypsilanti at 10 a.m. SHARP on August 8 to begin our drive. The park is adjacent to Depot Town, which offers restaurants and coffee shops for early risers who want a bite before the drive. Or, bring doughnuts to the park early to enjoy some camaraderie.


We’ll take a (mostly rural) drive — beginning on U.S. 12 and perhaps branching off from there — and setting our sights on the Potawatomi Inn (see 
www.in.gov). The drive is around 2-1/2 hours. Those who want to stay at the Inn overnight can call the reservation line at 877-563-4371 — there were 17 rooms available as of 7/8/20 so call soon. There is a Holiday Inn Express nearby as well (Holiday Inn Express Fremont — Angola Area, 6245 N. Old 27, Fremont, Indiana 46737.  NOTE: you can plan to drive back the same day as well . . . the trip is short.


There are swimming and hiking opportunities at the park and several dining options for lunch, though bringing a picnic with you is another, less public option. For dinner, we’ll have an old-fashioned outdoor 
weiner roast at one of the park grills; dogs, buns, chips, condiments and sides will be offered for a nominal kitty amount.

The focus for the trip will be on the drive and park activities with distant socializing in a safe, outdoor environment.

Please bring your masks, Purell, anti-bacterial wipes and anything else that will help you feel safe. It is our hope that we can work out the socializing/overnight aspects on this trip as a model for the Fall Color Tour in October.
