    Memorial Day weekend

    My son and I are planning a trip this coming weekend. It is a toss-up of either the Deam wilderness area or the Nordhouse Dunes http://www.getoffthecouch.info/mason/nordunes.htm. Because the weather is looking to be warm I was thinking of going to the Nordhouse Dunes where we could spend a little time messing in the water. Water and kids always works out well. From what I've read we can camp anywhere we would like as long as we stay a distance from the water. Anyone have any problems hanging up there? How are the bugs?

    Thanks, The area itself doesn't seem to big enough to do a two day backpacking trip, but Ludington SP is just below it. I inquired about the campgrounds there, but with it being a holiday weekend if you snooze you lose. Either way a couple of days out with the boy is always quality time.
