While I agree that Ogden Dunes Beach is fabulous - it is not a public beach. It is a residential community and parking is restricted by permit for residents. Violators are ticketed and may be towed. There are also no bathroom facilities and no life guards. If you want to spend a carefree day on the beach, do yourself a favor and head to the nearby West Beach Unit of the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore. Or go a bit further east to the Indiana Dunes State Park. At both of these locations there is public parking, a pavilion with bathrooms and refreshments, and lifeguards (in the summer season of course). The Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore has several other beaches with varying degrees of amenities that are open to the public east of the state park as well. Here you will enjoy the SAME beautiful "singing sand", dunes, water and view, without first having to drive around the town of Ogden Dunes only to discover there is nowhere to park anywhere near the beach.... By the way, both Indiana Dunes State Park and the National Lakeshore also have camping sites if you are up for more than a day trip!
