Getting Outdoors

There's no shortage of outdoor activities to enjoy at Indiana Dunes State Park.

Choose a route from more than 16 miles of trails ranging from easy to moderate in difficulty. The Three Dune Challenge, the park's most rugged trail suitable for advanced hikers, travels over three of the tallest Indiana Dunes. This one-and-a-half-mile path gains more than 550 feet in elevation. Hikers who complete the trail will even receive a prize.

Lake Michigan offers endless water sports, including swimming and boating. The swimming beach on Lake Michigan is only open from May to September during designated hours, which are subject to change based on weather conditions and staff availability.

The park's nature center is also a haven for birdwatchers and wildlife enthusiasts. The wildlife observation room is an excellent place to view the park's diverse bird population and migratory species. History buffs will find an array of informative displays and presentations on the park's natural and local history.

The fun doesn't stop when the cold weather comes. Select trails in the park are designated for cross-country skiers in the winter. Don't forget to pack your winter gear in your rental RV, as the park doesn't offer rental services.
