Indiana Dunes State Park 6/8/21-6/12/21

Great visit to Indiana Dunes. Our first time there. The campground was smaller than expected for such a popular place, and the campsites were a decent size. Very quiet campground and I suspect it being a “dry” campground may have something to do with that. The swimming beach was always busy, but we…

  • Sunset with Chicago easily seen across Lake Michigan from the beach.
  • My kids playing in water.
  • Trail 7 lead us to a wide open beach with very few people .

Competitive pricing and great views

This place was amazing. Right on the beach and close to town for bars and restaurants. My only complaint is that I wish the full hookup sites had pavement or a concrete pad....or at least a machine to come by and flatten out the sand. There were huge divets in our site, and it was on an incline.…

Great place to camp and see Chicago

We stayed here code a week while my husband had to fly out for work. It was safe, and everyone was so friendly and kind. The neighbors welcomed us and by the time we had to leave we felt like we were part of the community. There is easy access to public transportation. It was HOT and there are no…

Beautiful Indians Dunes National Park

We spent one night at Indians Dunes National Park and we love this campground. Lots of room for our 15’ Ford F-150 and 19’4” travel trailer. Our campsite was Dunewood Campground, Mather loop, site #1.

Great Campground!

We had a great weekend camping at this State Park. From the front gate person to the camp host, everyone was very friendly and helpful. We were on campsite 13 in the electric campground. The site was clean and well maintained. There was a picnic table, fire pit, and a very level pad. The…

Good place to stop after getting past (or before) Chicago and Gary

A fine campground, but you can hear the highway and commuter trains pass by regularly. Private property abuts the campground. Good in a pinch, but the nearby state park campground might be a better option. Also, reservations are required (we pulled in at 10:45, not knowing and managed to grab a…

Site 67 Douglas Loop

Site 67 is one of the walk in sites, but it was very private. Only one other site was visible, so we set up our tents between us and felt like the only people there. It was great. The walk in distance wasn't bad at all. The bathroom facilities were very clean. The sky was beautiful, and the…

Camping with the doggos

Bathroom facilities were good. Reasonably clean and well maintained. The hike to the beach was fun and not far at all. The dogs loved it. Camp sites are decent sized.

Great location

Nice spot, basic but clean. The Pin Oak trees were abundant for hammocks but a little worrisome with the wind advisory. Train tracks are quite close so light sleepers may be woken by the sound, Beverly Shores train depot very convenient if coming or going to Chicago. A quick bike ride to the the…

Good for families!

Nice layout and easy access to camp amenities made this weekend trip away from home a relaxing one. Though early in the season, the campground was busy. Beautiful state park scenery.
