I just went to check this campground out and it had one site that I would like to stay on. Site 71 was right on a dune with stairs to see the lake!
the beach is cool! you can drive right up! but to park in the daytime is $10, on top of the campground fee. i was prepared to pay it, though, because my hip was sore and walking from the campground was out of the question.
campground sites can be on top of one another. shrill yip dogs of the campground host in the first loop. asked to move and they gave me something in the higher loop, a bit closer to the beach. i was pretty happy there.
drinking/party feel with bars and breweries everwhere.
if i were to visit the area again, i’d reserve ahead at indiana dunes national park cg instead. nature is why i camp.
This was a prime location. Super close to the beach, which was nice during the 90° heat. It was also a quick drive to the nearby wineries. The beach was very sandy and large. Ok bathrooms. Smaller spots for the tent, but we made do.
You can’t get closer to the beach than at these beach access campsites. Nightly sunsets here will knock your sandals off. A majority of the RV sites here are occupied by locals who buy out the spot for the season and come in to enjoy it on the weekends.
The beach: Weko is a lovely local beach. Sand is soft and the water is shallow far out into the surf. A food and sundries shop is on premise. SUP and kayak rentals are also on the beach.
Bridgman: the town of Bridgman is super cute. Three local breweries are in town, along with a wine tasting room and local food restaurants.
The bathrooms: Weko Beach campground bathrooms leave much to be desired. They are co-Ed and each shower stall has a locking door. Bathrooms are old, but cleaned daily. Lack of airflow has lead to mold and mildew growth.
Sandy campsite: this campground is not paved since it is in and amongst the dunes. Therefor, the soil is sandy and often soft. We got our airstream stuck using our 2 wheel drive truck and needed the help of a 4x4 to get us out. Some sites are flat while others are on a hill.
There are 2 RV loops, and one primitive loop. Primitive sites have porta -Johns.
During the summer there are live music concerts out on the beach.
You can grab the campground WiFi only if you’re standing outside the office.
Had a wonderful trip here. Close to the lake with a beach that was not very crowded and enjoyed watching the sunset. I stayed in a cabin here that was cozy and comfortable. Loved that the small store and bathrooms were close and that it was a smaller campground
This is my yearly spot. Cannot say enough good things about WB. It’s right on the shores of Lake Michigan. The beach, sand dunes, local wineries are all right there. Some sites have water. All have electric. The downside is there is no sewer hookups.
Can get busy, but beautiful park, often festivals (wine festival) and other activities, excellent beach on Lake Michigan. Close to casino and wineries
