Outdoor Recreation

The South Shore offers a multitude of opportunities to enjoy outdoor recreation. Whether your preference is having fun in the sun or playing in the snow, there's an activity to please every outdoor enthusiast!

The Indiana Dunes offers year-round opportunities to enjoy the great outdoors, including fishing, swimming, cross-country skiing, hiking and birding. The dunes also offers camping as does Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park Camp Resort with many family-friendly outdoor activities.

Explore the variety of themed gardens at Taltree Arboretum & Gardens or walk along miles of trails. 

Choose from an abundance of fishing opportunities, both on beautiful Lake Michigan or at one of the region's inland lakes or streams. Book a fishing trip with Indiana's North Coast Charter Association and experience the best Lake Michigan salmon and trout fishing. Fish by boat or from the shoreline at Wolf Lake for perch, blue gill and walleye.

Have some fun in the sun at one of the South Shore's many water attractions. Float on the lazy river at Deep River Waterpark or frolic in the spraying water at Wolf Lake Aquatic Play Center.

No matter what type of outdoor recreation is your favorite, the South Shore has an activity you will enjoy!
