There's just something about balmy summer days at the beach, camping in the great outdoors and plenty of sunshine that makes ice cream an absolute necessity of life. In 1969, Charles (Buck) Redding, an engineer by trade, recognized a business opportunity and began construction of an ice cream shop on the northern edge of the Muskegon State Park Campground. The new venture opened in 1970 and was named “Jeanie’s” after his wife Jean. The new ice cream shop was an instant success and the Redding family continued to operate Jeanie’s until 1981. It was sold to John and Beverly Reishus in 1982 and they operated the business for one season.
