    Just clicked on the map and it is useless. Puts the Meetup in Chesterton. Where in the park is the pavilion? Is it the old Wilson's Shelter?

    I also found out that the park has an entrance fee: $5.00 Indiana resident.
    $10.00 Out-of-State.

    Hey all- I just called the park office. The woman there stated that they do have pavillions in the park. The main one is by the lakeshore and they are having a plant sale there on Sat. I mentioned the "Wilson Shelter" and she said that it is one of the ones that are rented. Have arrangements been made for our group there?
    Just trying to understand this clearly and get the location right....
    Thanks!

    Sorry, a family priority has come up, and since I have lost my hand held radios I was going to test, and all my camping gear & preps are gone, I am going to be with family out of town that day. Sorry.

    I don't know anything about radio comms so this would be a good place to start.

      Dee, most of us are from North West Indiana, some over in Illinois and even a few from Michigan. I have not heard of anyone from Indy but it is a large group so it is possible.

    I was just looking at the Dunes State Park's website and they list camping as late April through early November. I have no idea when the camp actually opens but we may want to chek on it for those hoping to camp.

    Many years ago I held a license for cb radio and FCC telecommunicators license. Been away from it for quite sometime and would like to update info and requirements. I'm interested in purchasing handheld units, but would like some info on them first.
    The date sounds great. Really looking forward to it. Thanks for the info!
