Beautiful sites, lots of trees, great hiking paths and trails and it's near Lake Michigan; also right next to the Indiana Dunes National Waterfront
Amazing bathrooms and showers. Great tree cover. Minutes from beach and dunes. Affordable.
This is a great area for those who (like us) have made I-80 a semi-annual migration pattern ;-) All kidding aside, this is a perfect spot either to or from the Chicago area. From Indiana Dunes State Park all the way up the coast to New Buffalo, the area is dotted with great little restaurants, wineries, and breweries. Tourist-y without being tacky.
There are plenty or rentals for those looking for a house-type stay.
Quick Tip: Prepare for cold water! Lake Michigan is usually pretty cold until later in the summer.
A beautiful, relaxing spot that’s just a stones throw away from a gorgeous beach!!
The campground is amazing! Our campsite had so much room. It was easy to back our trailer into and had room for an extra guest. The beach walk is beautiful! We played on the beach with the dog and took a 7 mile hike through the woods and onto the beach. The hike was very difficult once we hit the beach but my 8 year old pushed through. Lesson learned. I highly recommend this campground!
Love the campground however a separate entrance for re-entry to the campground would be a great idea for this place
My calves still hurt from hiking up these massive sand dunes. The view is stunning which makes it feel worth it. The place has a lot of geological history that’s neat to look into. Good place to teach a person how to skip rocks.
This camp ground was a federal site that was wonderful. It just had so much to do in the campground and near by as well. We went to look at the light house, sand dunes, lake, beach, and even rode the train into Chicago for the day.
This was a great State Park and loved the sand dune challenge as it got us out hiking. The sand dunes were beautiful. The views were stunning on top of the sand dunes. The trail is well marked and should only be done by those in good shape. It is tricky to walk on the sand.
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.
