The BEST State Park in Indiana! The Indiana Dunes are beautiful. Some don't care for the mills nearby or the NIPSCO cooling tower to the East. If it weren't for conservation back in the day, the shoreline would be ALL steel mills & industry.
The campground was redone & new bathhouses built within the last 10 years. It's really nice now. Get a peripheral site, away from the pit toilets & dumpsters. The sites on the West loop 14-22 & The East Loop 100-113. They're pretty tight, but are right up against the wooded dunes. The interior sites are not as nice. Stacked right on top of each other.
There's great hiking. A nice visitor center. Of course the main attraction is Lake Michigan.

This is a great getaway for Chicagoans. I've been going here since I was a kid, and I've always loved it. They have nice shower facilities and a helpful little general store at the campground. The sites are just minutes away from Lake Michigan, so it's easy to go back and forth between the beach and the rest of the park's attractions (hello, beautiful trees!). I would definitely recommend this place as a weekend retreat for anyone in the Ill-iana area.

The campground is ALWAYS full. The lots are all blacktop, it has been de-naturalised as far as Im concerned. There are some nice hiking trails but no way to ride a bike to the nearby town except a busy highway.
