Dig the Dunes Trail Stop

Dig the Dunes Trail Stop is the only location along the shores of the Indiana Dunes National Park where you can enjoy beer, wine, a light bite, or a full meal, all while watching the waves and a beautiful sunset. 

At Trail Stop, we source many of our menu items locally, including our freshly baked pretzels, hand made ice cream and craft brews. Head to Trail Stop for live music, a wine tasting, or to just sit and watch the sunset.

~ Souvenirs & dunes apparel available for purchase! ~
