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 learned quickly to hike trail 7 to get to the quiet part of the beach. While the beach off of trail 7 is a no swimming beach, the kids enjoyed playing in the water. Enjoyed trail 2 and the walk on the boardwalk through the marsh. My only issue is the bathrooms and showers were crazy nasty, and you had to deal with the urine odor while showering. Met a lot of friendly people from all over the country. We camped with a small group of three families. All sites were well shaded for most of the day, with site 124 being full shade for the whole day. All sites were level and clean.

  • 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 .
