Set on the shores of Lake Michigan, these 15 miles of state park coast are known as some of the best lakefront beaches in the country. If sun and sand aren’t for you, the park has more than 70 miles of hiking and biking trails which wind through dunes, forests, prairies, and marshes. The large sand dunes, located beyond the entire shoreline, have taken thousands of years to form, and tower nearly 200 feet above the lake. The park consists of 2,182 acres of primitive and unique Hoosier landscape. Vacationers’ favorite activities include fishing, picnicking, hiking, cross country skiing in the winter, bird watching, and camping.
