On The Move

Indiana Dunes State Park

Indiana Dunes State Park

After leaving White Cloud on our way to Bloomington, Indiana we needed a stopover spot to break up the 8 1/2 hour drive. One of our favorite state parks was on the route so we left White Cloud a day early in order to have 2 days at Indiana Dunes to rejuvenate our spirits.

Indiana Dunes lies within the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore. The park has 3 miles of sandy beach on Lake Michigan.

The national lakeshore encompasses several diverse habitats other than the sand dunes & beach. There are wooded wetlands, black oak forest, a Heron rookery, & a buttonbush marsh. A variety of flora & fauna can be found, including Prickly Pear cactus.

The park has paved sites with connecting parking slots. Each campsite is lightly wooded & quite spacious. Some of the best we’ve seen in a state park. All sites have 20/30/50 amps. The only thing we can think of that would make this facility even better would be water & possibly sewer hookups at each site.

The park has everything that most state parks offer. Clean, newer bath houses, sanitation station, potable water, playgrounds, picnic areas, a nature center & great hiking & biking trails. There’s also a really nice souvenir/concession stand/changing room on the beach.

I would’ve liked to include more photos but our stay was so short & the temps so hot I just didn’t get ‘er done.

Here’s lookin’ at you kid…………………….
