After a 13 year hiatus, the venerable Cat Fight is returning to the Great Lakes. We’re also bringing it to you from a brand-new CRAM location in New Buffalo. CRAM is excited to announce that CRAW (Catamaran Racing Association of Wisconsin) will be joining us this year and hopefully for many years to come.  

New Buffalo Beach Park
300 Marquette Drive, New Buffalo, MI
New Buffalo is just north of the Indiana/Michigan border on Lake Michigan. It can easily be reached via I-94.  Just take Exit 1 off 94 and head west for 6 minutes on 239 (Harbor Country Drive).  It doesn't get any easier than that!

The below diagram should be fairly self-explanatory.  Please keep the trailers to the south side of the parking lot and your boats in the adjacent beach area inside the breakwater.

There is plenty of room for Tent and RV camping in the Lions Pavilion Park.  There are also many hotel options in the area (check link here).  This is the busy season, so hotel rates are not going to be cheap.
