Me and the family love visiting the Indiana Dunes Beach. To us it is one of the cleanest beaches around. We visit once a year on vacation and would absolutely love to move near this location. There are certain times of the year to visit the beach which are the warmest and that is going to be anywhere from the beginning of July to about the third week in August. If you go any time outside of that range and you're planning on swimming the water is going to be cold at least too cold for us. The sand dunes are incredible to look at to walk on or to roll down. The sand is very fine in most areas around the beach. There are a few pet friendly beaches in the area but not actually at the Indiana Dunes State Park Beach. We drive 6 hours to visit the Indiana Dunes for our vacation and it is worth every second of the trip.

The closest you can get to an ocean in this part of the country. Beautiful location with nice beaches, hiking trails, camping and picnic areas, and very clean bathrooms. There's also a very nice nature center. One of the best places I've visited in Indiana so far!

It was 7 dollars to get in (12 for out of state residents) and the parking was a little tight but we found one. The beach is a good size beach and there were a lot of people there but it wasn't super crowded. We couldn't swim because the water was too choppy but that it fine. They had a small amount of concessions there but, they were good. I highly recommend the tacos and burgers there.

This was my first time seeing the Indiana dunes and I'm sure glad we made the trip. The beach is beautiful and has plenty of room for people to spend a day. It was still too cold to swim, but this will definitely be a day trip my wife and I will make in the near future. If you aren't into beaches there are plenty of trails to walk or bike.
