Outdoor Recreation

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 Taltree Arboretum & Gardens or walk along miles of trails. 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!
