Indiana Dunes located in the far northern part of Indiana is one of the best places to create memories in the state. WIth more than 2100 acres of amazing Indiana Open Country, including more than 70 miles of hiking and biking trails.
Situated in Porter County Indiana, camping in Indiana Dunes gives you direct access to drifting sand hills and nearly three miles of Lake Michigan shoreline.
The park has a lovely sandy beach where you can sunbathe and watch the waves crashing on the shore.
There are tons of great stuff you can do when you are camping in Indiana Dunes, that I am only going to be able to share a piece of the fun with you in this post. Whether you are into local attractions, recreational fun, shopping or culture there is definately a lot of something for everyone.
Camping In Indiana Dunes:
Fishing- With three miles of the south shore of Lake Michigan, there is plent of room for plenty of fishing. Lake Michigan is loaded with incredible fish such as coho salmon, chinook salmon, steelheads, lake trout, perch, smallmouth and many many more. Before you go, you might want to a little research on what you want to real in. Bring your rod and real and have a little bit of fun. You will need a valid Indiana fishing license and a trout salmon stamp if you intent on fishing for those species.
Swimming- The majority of the lake does NOT have lifeguards so it is up to your own discretion when it comes to swimming. The West Beach does offer lifeguards from 10:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. only. Lake Michigan is an extremely large body of water and caution should be high. Treat it as though you are swimming in an ocean. The beach area is fully equiped with a full service snack bar and bathhouse in the prime summer season.
Hiking/Biking- For all you hiking and biking enthousiest like I said in the into there are more than 70 miles of trails. From beginner to moderate. No matter what level you are hiking, make sure you bring the right type of gear and be prepaired for the unexpected. You never know when a small stroll through the wilderness may turn into an overnight situation. (not trying to scare you, but I want to make sure you are safe)
Boating- Camping In Indiana Dunes does not offer direct access to boat ramps or boats, but in the communities surrounding the national park there are many facilities where you can launch and/or rent a boat.
Horseback Riding- Horseback riding is available throughout most of the year with exception to January and February. Lycokiwe Trail is the main riding trail at the park.
Birdwatching- There are a flethora of birds and waterfowl at the park. From Hawks to wetland birds, there is definately something for every single bird enthousiest to enjoy.
