About

During the spring and summer, Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore's shoreline near Central Avenue is a great place to watch bank swallows flying to and from their nest burrows in the dunes. Spring and fall offer great shorebird and waterfowl viewing. Just past the gate on the entrance road, you'll see a buried forest, created when wind-blown sands inundated the trees. Nearby, you can access the northeast end of the Calumet Bike Trail. This 9.1-mile gravel trail passes flower-filled fields, marshes, and woodlands. Lifeguards are not provided at Central Avenue Beach.

Horsebacking Riding

Date: Saturday, April 27
10am-noon (CT)

Join fellow equestrians for an extremely rare chance to ride on the beaches of Lake Michigan BYOH (bring your own horse). No horse rentals will be available. Due to the limited size of the parking lot and narrowness of the roads, large horse trailers cannot be accommodat4ed. Trailers must be a 2-3 horse stall size.
