CHESTERTON | If “roughing it” isn’t for you, Indiana Dunes State Park is offering a themed weekend for camping glamorously, May 31 through June 2

Glamorous camping, or glamping, is a way to experience the outdoors without giving up creature comforts. The weekend coincides with International Glamping Weekend, which celebrates luxury camping and experiencing the great outdoors with advanced amenities.

“The nice thing about glamping is it allows folks that don’t want to rough it the opportunity to enjoy the semi-wild and appreciate places like the dunes,” said Jessica Rosier, park interpretive naturalist.

Weekend programs will focus on important women in dunes history, beach glass jewelry making, a camping recipe tasting and exchange, example glamping sites and other activities.

The weekend begins  at 8 p.m. May 31 with a glamorous campfire gathering at the park’s Campground Shelter, and continues June 1 and 2 with hikes and talks at 10 a.m. and 3 p.m.

Visitors should check the park’s interpretive schedule for specific program titles and times. A special sunset toast will be at 7:30 p.m. June 1 from the historic pavilion rooftop.

Special program funding is courtesy the Friends of Indiana Dunes group.

Visitors are not required to stay overnight to enjoy any of the activities.

For more information about this or other park programs, call (219) 926-1390.

Indiana Dunes State Park is at 1600 North 25 E. Chesterton.
