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 park has free admission from Labor Day until Memorial Day. The entrance fee to most Indiana state parks is $5.00 for in-state and $7.00 for out of state vehicles from Memorial Day to Labor Day.
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.
