Caboose Lake: Remington, IN


On several trips over the years to Indiana Beach we'd pass Caboose Lake Campground in Remington, IN and it looked like a fun place for the kids. So, as we planned our most recent visit to Monticello to visit the amusement park, we decided to make it into a little getaway. We spent a full day at Indiana Beach and then a full day at the campground where there's a lot to do.

I had been wanting to do camping with the kids for a while. We'd stayed at a lot of campgrounds, but always in RVs or cabins, not actually "roughin' it." And we had a sizable tent that hadn't been used other than for backyard campouts and a once a year cub scout camp.

So, we set-up our tent and slept under the stars that night. I'm glad we experienced it, but I learned that I am no longer into roughin' it. I hadn't done that since I was a teenager. It was muggy. My inflatable mattress deflated in the middle of the night. Bugs were buzzing. My kids snored and kicked. The neighbors in the camper beside us were up late and then up early and really loud. Luckily, they have both rental RVs and cabins, so on our next visit, we will have to take advantage of that.

The boys enjoyed fishing with their dad, playing on the playground, making s'mores, swimming and playing on the beach and just strolling around the campground and eating ice cream. For a one-price wristband you have unlimited use of the Summer Beach Family Fun Zone during the times they are open. It includes a big inflatable water slide, bumper boats and a Water Wars water balloon game. Different fun activities are scheduled on weekends, such as horse shoe tournaments, train rides and corn hole tournaments. The kids took advantage of all of the above.

Caboose Lake provided a nice time for all of us and a chance to enjoy time as a family without electronics and screens. I'd recommend it as a place for a weekend family getaway if you're in Northern IL, Northern IN or Southwest, MI as is not too far and t'd it's a great stop to pair up with a visit to Indiana Beach.

  1. After being in relationship with Wilson for seven years,he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that don’t believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I meant a spell caster called Dr Zuma zuk and I email him, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened, that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem and who is different from all the fake ones out there. Anybody could need the help of the spell caster, his email: spiritualherbalisthealing@gmail.com or WhatsApp him +15068001647 blog: spiritualherbal.blogspot.com you can email him if you need his assistance in your relationship or anything. CONTACT HIM NOW FOR SOLUTION TO ALL YOUR PROBLEMS
