Indiana Dunes Tourism

Indiana’s No. 1 tourist destination is absolutely stunning in the springtime. Indiana Dunes consists of a 2,000-acre state park surrounded by 15,000 acres of newly designated national park; taken as a whole, Indiana Dunes is a natural wonderland of prairies, beaches, savannas, forests and wetlands. Visitors flock here for the abundance of outdoor adventures — camping, biking, hiking, fishing, swimming, birding and more. While you’re there try the “Three-Dune Challenge” and climb the three highest sand dunes; visit Chesterton’s European Market, and explore the Gabis Arboretum at Purdue Northwest. Popular places to stay nearby include Riley Railhouse Bed and Breakfast, Songbird Prairie Bed and Breakfast and Valparaiso Inn Bed & Breakfast.
