“camp in style less than a mile from the beach!”

Such a great place! It's like being on the ocean but without the salty water and sharks. We stopped just long enough to walk along the beach and eat lunch. I'd definitely recommend it!
Negative review only because Roadtrippers information here is incorrect. This site is NOT free, entry to the park is $12 and another $26 to camp on top of that. Just had to pay this when expecting a few campsite tonight, so trust me I know.
My family loved this trip to the Indiana Dunes! What a beautiful place! And as a mother of children ages ranging from 19 to 3 its hard to find something the whole family can enjoy. The campground was nice and the facilities were kept clean. My oldest son, who is our seasoned camper, said he had never been to a campground with such nice facilities. We loved it so much we have decided to make this an annual summer trip!
The sites are Electric only, but totally worth it! They have ample water filling stations and the sites have a good amount of space between them. The dumping station was easy to use and clean. We wish we had spent longer than one night, but we will definitely stay here again. The trails to the Indiana Dunes State Park were close by and easy to access. We also drove to Devils Slide to watch an amazing sunset over Lake Michigan!
This camp site was beautiful! Stayed here one evening on a cross country road trip. The sites are pet friendly, as well as the beaches. The sand dunes are a beautiful trail walk behind the camp site and a beautiful place on a summer day. The facilities at the camp are very new and the staff was extremely friendly. Mostly RV's and not very many tents, but we had a blast in our tents and making an evening fire.
I would definitely come again and spend more time on the trails. Took the 3 dune challenge and also enjoyed the trail to the beach. Easy walk or bike ride on that trail. For sure want to come back again.
Sites are electric only. Spacious. Nice employees and other campers. Made friends with a couple from down the street from us.
Really beautiful grounds with short walking or biking trails to Lake Michigan. Back-in spots are roomy. No water at sites but there is a fill station (and a dump station) on the grounds. Bathrooms are decent.
A big, beautiful beach. It closes too early, but you should stay to watch the sunset.
This place is beautiful. Drive up gate $12, and made a tent camp pet friendly reservation online. $37, so drive up check in was a breeze. Nicely spaced sites, "comfort station" in the middle of all sites is a giant building with HOT showers and clean flush toilets. Very nice trail leads you down to lake Michigan. $12 is worth this view. Truly unique campground. We passed through for the night, but we will be back for a longer stay. Bonus: playground for the kiddies!!
