Great Access to Dunes

We have only camped here in the winter as it’s a fun place to bring our dog for runs. The campground is always clean and there is fantastic access to the dunes as they are literally on the backside of the campground.

The campground is definitely set up to favor RVs as all of the sites are pads (with grass surrounding) with power however we found that there is still space to set up a tent when needed.

Very clean and easy access to the lake front.

The dunes is a great place to camp if you’re looking to be close to the water. In just a short hike, you can take in a breath-taking view of Lake Michigan. Definitely a must visit camping spot.


One of my favorite campgrounds in Indiana. Very popular

Beautiful Beaches

I love the sunshine!

Love being close to Lake Michigan

Go early and wait for a chance to camp, first come first serve! Close to the beach!

On Lake Michigan

Nice campground on Lake Michigan. Lots of hiking. Large swimming beach on the lake. There were quite a few mosquitos, but we managed. The shower house was large and well maintained.

Great Place to Learn to Ride a Bike

Just need a peaceful place to get away? Perhaps you need some space for your youngest child to learn to ride a bike? We did on both accounts and the IN Dunes fit the bill! We traveled during the week in October so only about 1/2 the sites were filled. This was great for peace and riding space. The roadways are well maintained and easy for a new rider. There are also great spots to ride to from the campground. The Nature Center is very close. Up for a little more distance? Take the paved paths to the beach and reward the new rider with some splash time. It was actually still. 80+ degrees in October before falling into the 50s. Overall, there is much to do with biking or hiking and make sure you walk along the sandy beach!

Nice clean fun

theres trails and sand dunes to climb clean beach really clean camp ground with newer clean bathrooms

An amazing strip of nature so close to urbanity

We loved this park. It's a wonderful stop between major metro areas. The dunes are fun to hike through. The beaches are lovely. Many of the sites in the campground are generously spaced with wide vegetation buffers.

A Safe Place To Camp!

We brought a large group of friends to tent camp in this camp ground and it was great! We loved the safety of the park, the community around us, and the facilities offered were exactly what we needed. The bath and shower house was a little dirty most of the weekend but given that the campground was full the whole weekend, I am sure the bathrooms got a lot of traffic. There isn’t many trees on the sites so if you are hammock camping, I would suggest not camping here for risk that there aren’t two trees a good distance together. The staff was very friendly and the camp store had just enough supplies. Not too many things, just the necessary stuff.
