Outdoor Recreation

Please note: While many outdoor areas are open they will close if they become overcrowded and the state's social distancing guidelines are not adhered to. Please do your part to keep these amazing opportunities for outdoor recreation open for everyone. 

OPEN: Most parks remain open for visitors to use the trails, parking lots and many of the beaches. This includes Indiana Dunes State Park and National Park. For more information on beaches that are open, click here.

Families can go outside and take a walk, run, ride a bike, geocache, go fishing or boating, but they should continue to practice social distancing by remaining six feet away from other people. Hunting is also permitted.

Golf courses and campgrounds may be open. In most Indiana counties community pools, tennis and basketball courts may also be open. Lake County may reopen these June 1st.

CLOSED: Playgrounds are still closed and most events at the parks have been cancelled through the duration of the current executive order.


The Great Outdoors

The South Shore of Lake Michigan offers plenty of ways to enjoy the great outdoors in every season. 

The Indiana Dunes offers year-round opportunities to enjoy the great outdoors, including fishing, swimming, cross-country skiing, hiking, birding and camping

Book a fishing charter or take your boat out for fishing on Lake Michigan or at one of the region's inland lakes or streams.  Explore the variety of themed gardens at Gabis Arboretum or Friendship Botanic Gardens. 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!
