Indiana Dunes Country Outdoor Recreation & Activity

Rediscover the simple pleasure of the outdoors

Getting outdoors just feels great. That’s a good thing because there’s no shortage of outdoors in Indiana Dunes Country. Splish, splash and sun on one of our ten swimmable beaches. Try your hand at kite flying, sand castle building, frisbee or volleyball. Explore the 15,000 acres of beach woods, marshes and prairie of the National Lakeshore. Hike into the Dunes Nature Preserve and surrender to pristine, natural landscapes. Catch up on your birding in our unique haven that welcomes an unusually high diversity of birds as they travel south for the winter. Take to the lake and cast your cares away as you spend a relaxing day reeling in that evening’s fish dinner.
