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!
