Great location on Lake Michigan. Great beach and campground facilities. No alcohol policy seems to help make this one of the quietest state parks anywhere. Sites are relatively spacious, and there are lots of trees. Also lots of mosquitoes. Great park ranger programs. We camped at Indiana Dunes State Park in a Tent Trailer.

This was our first visit to the Indiana Dunes State Park CG. It was easy to locate and the check in process went smoothly. Nice small general store with just a few essential things someone may forget to bring. Although we didn't use them, the bathroom facilities were recently renovated, so they are very nice. Nice beach access. That is the main reason to come to this park. The CG is a typical state park, with no frills. The grounds could have used a bit of sprucing up. We will return to this state park.

The campground was nice with some fairly spacious sites. Bathrooms seemed clean and well maintained. The problem we encountered were the rude campers. We camped from a Friday to Wednesday. During that time there was constant dog barking; screaming babies; campers next to us with the most bright, obnoxious lights on at night; and campers playing loud music. We have little kids, as well, and we're not fuddy duddies but it just got a little old. The worst was the camper next to us who brought along a mosquito fogger and sprayed that stuff several times a night even while they (and we) were eating. We complained to the park staff, but they refused to do anything about it. Again, it's a nice campground but not necessarily the most peaceful. We camped at Indiana Dunes State Park in a Tent Trailer.

We only stayed one night, but wish our visit could have been longer! This campground was easy to navigate. Our site (like most) was spacious and very level. The beach was absolutely gorgeous, although quite crowded during our visit. The only downside was the bathrooms - the stainless steel used for the sinks and counter tops accumulated persistent puddles and didn't seem very clean, although there wasn't any noticeable trash or filth. We definitely want to come back for a multi-night visit. We camped at Indiana Dunes State Park in a Tent Trailer.

This is a great state park. All the campsites have level, concrete pads and lots of space. There are trees around most of the sites that make them fairly private. The biggest draw of this campground, though is the lake and the dunes. There are miles of hiking trails along the dunes, most have a brochure. Be sure to check out the nature center you can get a birding list there and see many different species from their observation room. We camped at Indiana Dunes State Park in a Tent Trailer.

We always enjoy camping at the Indiana Dunes. The campsites are spaced apart decently, there is plenty of shade, and the campsites are well maintained. My daughter loves to take her father on the trails up and down the sand dunes and out to the beach and nature center. There are often nature based activities going on each day at the nature center or the beach. Yes, you can hear the announcements on the life guard loud speakers. However, unless there was an emergency, I have not heard them go off every 15 minutes as stated in another review and at night time, they stop. Due to Emerald Ash Borer and other pests, the county is quarantined, so do not expect to bring your own wood in. You pay for your wood at the store and then it is delivered at your campsite. We camped at Indiana Dunes State Park in a Tent Trailer.
