Sledding in the Dunes Area


The Dunes area has five parks that are perfect for kids or adults itching to grab a sled or tube and speed down a snowy hill.

Try the moderate hill at Coffee Creek or the 192 foot Devil’s Slide at the Indiana Dunes State Park. Once you make your way up to the top, you’ll be rewarded with a stunning view of Lake Michigan.

One of the newest sledding hills in the area is at Indiana Dunes National Park’s West Beach. When you’re done sledding, take a winter stroll along the beach.
