Dogs: Pets are permitted on both trails that I am considering as long as they are on a 6 ft or less leash. Keep in mind that some areas of the park do not allow dogs and if you plan on camping- consider your dogs needs as well. Dunewood Campground has the same leash rule.

Dunewood Campground is at Golf Wood Road & Dunewwod Parkway, Beverly Shores, IN 46301

Hey ladies!! As I posted before my fiance and I are camping in June at Dunewood Campground in Indiana Dunes National Park (our newest NP). We will have an official hike on the 22nd in the afternoon (trail TBD- either Cowles Bog-https://www.nps.gov/indu/planyourvisit/cb16.htm or Paul H. Douglas- https://www.nps.gov/indu/planyourvisit/mw16.htm). 

You are more than welcome to make it a day trip or an overnighter and camp (or book a room- whatever floats your boat). I will be more than willing to help you all figure out your camping plans but the ONLY OFFICIAL GWH EVENT is the afternoon hike. As far as camping or any other hike you or we may participate in- you are 'on your own.'
