Once upon a time there was a girl named Bonnie. She went camping at Hoffmaster State Park. Bonnie and her family set up a tent, had a campfire, slept on an air mattress, and went to the beach. The beach was close by. She loved to swim at the beach. The waves were really big. Bonnie and her brother jumped in the waves, dived in the waves, and practically ran away from the waves. Bonnie invited her cousins to come to Hoffmaster State Park. They played in the sand, made sand holes, swam in the water, and went to the sandbar. They had so much fun camping by the beach. The End.
Thanks, Bonnie. In a nutshell, that’s what the Great Lakes are all about: family fun and memories. If you’re interested in learning more about how you can help protect this great resource, click here.
