Indiana Dunes Camping

Please note: Indiana's Governor Eric Holcomb has issued an executive order (20-18) to close all campgrounds to visitors throughout the state of Indiana until further notice. People at campgrounds who reside in recreational vehicles (RVs) and cabins and have no other place of residence may remain at the campground.

Should you need a place to stay in the South Shore, please visit our hotels page and use the CDCs recommendations on social distancing and staying healthy.

Camping in the Indiana Dunes is a fantastic way to get away from it all. Visitors can enjoy Lake Michigan's magnificent beaches and the natural beauty of the Indiana Dunes National Park and Indiana Dunes State Park.

  • Open year round
  • 140 sites
  • Full electric hookup

The park has many special events, including Glamping Weekend.
