Indiana Dunes State Park

The Indiana Dunes State Park is located at 1600 N CR-25 East, Chesterton, IN 46304.

The park consists of 3 miles of beachfront on Lake Michigan and 2,182 acres of unique landscape.

The park includes sand dunes, some of which rise more than 200 feet above the level of the lake.  These dunes have taken thousands of years to form.

The beach closes for swimming on Labor Day weekend, and some weekdays prior.

Trails in the park range from 3/4 of a mile to 5-1/2 miles in length.
