About

This true bog is a must-see adventure experience. Located several miles inland, away from the rest of the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore, Pinhook Bog has a floating boardwalk where you can view carnivorous plants, sphagnum moss and blueberry bushes. You'll walk above the sponge-like layer on the bog's surface in the most unexpected environment in the dunes. The bog is open during select times when rangers are present. the Upland Trail is also accessed through this parking let and can be enjoyed sunrise to 30 minutes past sunset daily.
