What started off as a three day trip to Pokagon State Park in Northeast Indiana (5 miles south of the Indiana-Michigan state line and 14 miles west of the Indiana-Ohio state line) turned into a seven day trip so we could watch our grandson play in a soccer tournament in Fort Wayne, IN. We booked three nights at Ouabache State Park 45 minutes south of Fort Wayne, near Bluffton, IN We got to watch Mack play 2 games on Saturday, but heavy rains moved their last game inside and we decided not to go. They had 3"-4" of rain overnight and most of the day Sunday.

Lunch at Mad Anthony Tap Room (Brewery)
After lunch we headed to the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Museum. We are members of Harvest Host and reserved an overnight stay. They even had 30amp electric and water. We purchased tickets to visit the auto museum and the truck museum. We spent close to 2-1/2 hours on Monday and another 1-1/2 hours on Tuesday morning. The history of the Auburn, Cord, and Duesenberg automobiles in Northeast Indiana was very interesting. Across the street is a large parking lot they use for auto shows and around the parking lot are bronze statues of all of the people that were instrumental in the manufacturing and design of these cars, and historical signs. We thoroughly enjoyed our time in the museum..

Pokagon State Park sits on the shores of Lake James ansd Lake Snow. Steuben County has the most lakes of any county in Indiana. The lakes were formed by glaciers 10,000-15,000 years ago. The glacier was the last of four that covered Indiana and was name the "Wisconsin".The Saginaw lobe of this massive, one mile thick, ice flow was the last to leave a lasting impression on the face of the lands of Pokagon State Park.
