Hi Friends! How is it almost September? I can’t believe summer is coming to a close, but alas, we shall look forward to fall. This past weekend we visited Indigo Bluffs RV Park and Resort in Empire, MI. We camped with Ian’s Brother Garrin and his wife, Liz and their two pups!

I don’t know if it’s the extra blue water (why is it so blue here!? Seriously, does anyone know?), the cute little shops in every town, or the vast amounts of hiking, biking and exploring at the nearby Sleeping Bear Dunes National Park, but I have always loved this little corner of Michigan. I’m fairly certain it’s all of these things combined that make it one of my favorites . Indigo Bluffs is just outside of Empire, but fairly close to both Empire and Glen Arbor, and just a 30 minute drive to Traverse City. I have to say up front I think you need more than just a weekend to visit this area. There are just SO many fun things to do.


I really loved this campground. It is split into two sections, a RV Park, and an RV resort. The resort area has gated access and only allows certain types of RVs. They also don’t allow kids to ride bikes without a parent. This is probably a good area for those who want a little more peace and quiet. We obviously stayed in the RV park.
