Every summer the family and I do a lot of camping. Michiana is one of our favorite camping destinations due to the proximity to Indy and to Lake Michigan. We found the beach at IN Dunes State Park/National Park to be rocky and dirty. We decided to give the beach at Washington Park a try (over 5 summers ago) and... More

Once you are inside it's really nice. The beach area is really nice with the lighthouse. Fun to watch the boats come and go. Downside is you have a huge power plant towering over it all. And avoid the zoo, it's the worst zoo I've ever been to.

It's Indiana! Never would have thought I could have gotten beaches such as this here. We fished on the pier and swam for hours. The water is really clear and clean.
