Such a great place! It's like being on the ocean but without the salty water and sharks. We stopped just long enough to walk along the beach and eat lunch. I'd definitely recommend it!

My family loved this trip to the Indiana Dunes! What a beautiful place! And as a mother of children ages ranging from 19 to 3 its hard to find something the whole family can enjoy. The campground was nice and the facilities were kept clean. My oldest son, who is our seasoned camper, said he had never been to a campground with such nice facilities. We loved it so much we have decided to make this an annual summer trip!

This place is beautiful. Drive up gate $12, and made a tent camp pet friendly reservation online. $37, so drive up check in was a breeze. Nicely spaced sites, "comfort station" in the middle of all sites is a giant building with HOT showers and clean flush toilets. Very nice trail leads you down to lake Michigan. $12 is worth this view. Truly unique campground. We passed through for the night, but we will be back for a longer stay. Bonus: playground for the kiddies!!

Pretty cool place - beautiful beach & dunes in an unexpected spot. Not much privacy in the campground, but reasonable sized sites and decent restrooms. Also convenient to I-80 if you're passing through but you have to pay the park fee in addition to the campground fee to enter.

Camped here for one night with my husband. The campgrounds were clean and the park staff was friendly. I really enjoyed the on-site camp supply store. They had a plethora of camping goodies (i.e. bug spray, camp fire foods, pots, pans, firewood) and everything was a great price.

The sand dunes themselves were underwhelming. Its really just a beach. Nothing special. Regardless, I enjoyed walking up and down the shores and hiking the park trails. I would come again if I was passing through the area.

Beautiful beaches, but very dirty rest rooms. Kind and helpful people and very handy for the trains.

Took a short walk along the beach when passing through Indiana this summer. We didn't stay long, but it was a nice way to relax and get out of the car for a while. I especially enjoyed the view - we could just see Chicago on the horizon! What an amazing surprise!
