Hello, all! Later this summer, I will be traveling from Chicago, IL to Saugatuck, MI by vehicle and would love to spend a day at the dunes to break up the drive.

Do you recommend a visit to Indiana Dunes or Warren Dunes? In your opinion, what makes one park superior to the other?

For the record, I love to hike, sightsee/photograph, sunbathe and swim, so whichever park offers more abundant recreational activities in those departments would be my preference.

I am aware that Indiana Dunes is a national park whereas Warren Dunes is a state park, but I do not know if that difference in governmental designation translates to a difference in majesty at the ground level.

I thank you in advance for your advice, comments and opinions.

The admission fee will vary.

It has been a very long time since I have been to either. But best as I recall, it depends on where in each park you go. Both parks have parts that are better than parts of the other park.
