Visitors can enjoy the lakefront and beach, trails through the dunes, fishing pier and the restored 900 ft. breakwater. There is also a large pavilion with seasonal snack bar, restrooms and meeting space. The hours are daily from sunrise to dusk. This is a great place to watch migrating birds in the spring and summer as well as see the shelf ice that forms on the waters of Lake Michigan. This 57-acre site is jointly managed by the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore and the City of Portage.
