Want to spend a weekend taking in the beauty of Lake Michigan? Well, you can… and you don’t even have to leave Indiana to do it!

When you arrive, be sure to check out the Dorothy Buell Memorial Visitor Center, which provides an overview of activities and programs available to visitors. View a short orientation film, shop in the bookstore or let your kids take advantage of the National Park Service Ranger program.
Then head off to West Beach, a popular venue for swimming and picnicking. Lifeguards are on duty during the peak summer season, and roving rangers offer interpretive services. Vistors are charged and amenity fee for access to West Beach.
