“Great area”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2013

Coffee Creek Watershed Conservancy Preserve is a great place to visit and walk. There are plenty of trails for people and/or people and their dogs to walk. It is a beautiful setting near the heart of downtown Chesterton.

“Nice hiking”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2013

It's a good place to hike, but if it's rained recently the trail will be muddy in areas. Wear appropriate shoes! There are picnic areas. There's a large pond with a fountain.

“Wooded paradise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2013

This combined untouched, and residential area features some of the country's greatest variety of birds. The Watershed Conservancy works hard to preserve 3 miles of lovely hiking paths, a beautiful natural amphitheater on a lovely fountained pond. There is a meadow large enough for kite flying, and even hot air balloons. Several time a year, the management holds free concerts in the amphitheater, and there is a large pavilion and meadow for activities on the East side of Coffee Creek. It is a wooden haven in the midst of all the comfort amenities and just 50 miles from Chicago.
