Trip Planner

Visitors to the Michigan City Campground will find a wide range of activities available to them for off-site excursions. Lake Michigan, with its majestic dunes and sandy beaches, is minutes away and just a few miles east is the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore. Within minutes of the campground are bicycle and hiking trails, horseback riding, fishing charters, kayak rentals, golf courses, wineries, restaurants, premium outlet shopping, antique shops, casinos and more. Kids will enjoy Michigan City's Washington Park Zoo, one of only four in the state, and after their visit to the zoo they can cool off at the beach or Oasis Splash Pad. The area also offers miniature golf, a nearby water park, a cinema multiplex, and other kid-friendly activities.

Southwest Michigan

Some guests may enjoy a visit to nearby Southwest Michigan and an area known as Harbor Country. It is less than half an hour from Michigan City and is made up of a series of charming resort communities (New Buffalo, Union Pier, Lakeside, Harbert, Bridgman, Sawyer, Three Oaks). You'll enjoy exploring Harbor Country and discovering its many restaurants, wineries, art galleries, boutiques, and more. Also nearby is South Bend, Indiana, home of the University of Notre Dame, the historic Studebaker Museum, great shopping, and many restaurants.


Those who would like to visit Chicago can hop aboard the South Shore commuter train in Michigan City and enjoy a safe, worry-free ride to the heart of the loop. Millennium Park and the Art Institute of Chicago are practically next to the train station and Navy Pier is nearby. A stroll up Michigan Avenue (known as the Magnificent Mile) will present them with incredible shopping, dining, and entertainment options.
