Hikes in Indiana
Set your sights on Indiana Dunes National Park, which preserves scenic waterfront on Lake Michigan at the north end of the state. Dunewood Campground is a good place to stay in the park, and there are several trails to explore, including the self-guided Dune Succession Trail, which depicts the ecological transition from sand dune to forest on the great lake’s shore.
Indiana Dunes National Park became the first and only national park in Indiana in February 2019. The area was previously protected as Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore.
