“Quiet state park with a great beach”

Reviewed May 15, 2019

Overall Rating

We really enjoyed our stay here. Would probably pick a different site as 104 had a slight grade. Loved the cement pads at every site. There is a great beach in the park that you can walk to. Since it was early spring it was pretty empty, but I assume it gets really busy in the summer.

“Great campground and park”

Reviewed Jun 02, 2017

Overall Rating

Nice, popular campground. Paved level sites with good spacing. Bathrooms were well maintained but had a bunch of birds nesting above the entrance so watch your step. Easy access to the beach and other trails from the campground.

Dumpstation available on the way out.

“Destination for hikers and beach-goers”

Reviewed Jun 10, 2016

Overall Rating

I loved that our site felt out a little more tucked away than the others, though the downside was that we had a walking path right behind us and quite often people didn't stick to the path and would walk through our site. We didn't do any of the dune hikes, but did enjoy a walk through the swamp and took twice daily strolls through ... more

Not a lot to do in the area, campground itself is good, nice bathrooms, spacious sites.The views on the beach are yucky, if you look west you see a refinery, if you look east its a nuclear power plant. Nearest town has a casino and a outlet mall, but the town is run down and sort of sad.

“Very nice campground with easy dune and beach access on Lake Michigan ”

Reviewed Sep 10, 2015

Overall Rating

Very nice campground although the actual price is higher than it should be in our opinion. $25 weekdays $30 on the weekends which includes Thursday, plus you have to pay an entrance fee which is $12 if non-resident or $7 if an Indiana resident (only once on arrival). The bathhouses are cleaned regularly and there are numerous vault toi... more

“Second Stay - Great Park!”

Reviewed May 21, 2015

Overall Rating

The dunes are simply amazing, and how fun to walk the shores of Lake Michigan with a view of Chicago on a clear day. The sites in the campground themselves are mostly well spaced, but there is little visual privacy between them. We enjoy the sites that back up to the dunes the best. Some much more level than others. Great hikin... more

Some of the sites are farther apart than others. Overall, its kept pretty clean, but can get quite busy during the weekend. When I was there in May, it got pretty busy during the weekend but I am usually out doing things so it doesn't bother me as much. There is some great hiking from the campground or my favorite with Q is Cowles Bo... more

“Fascinating refuge and park along the shores of Lake Michigan. ”

Reviewed Apr 08, 2015

Overall Rating

If you're traveling through the Chicago area this park is a nice option to spend a night or two. This was an interesting park because of it's location. It is situated in the middle of industrial northern Indiana; there appears to be a steel mill to the west and a power plant to the east. Both facilities are visible from the beach. Neve... more

Beautiful view of Lake Michigan from atop the dune We used to tent camp a lot and enjoyed staying in state parks as often as possible.  They’re in beautiful locations and offer lots of opportunities...
