Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore
Beach at Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore
After 67 years of struggle, legislation was passed in 1966 to create the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore as a national park in order to protect the rugged sand dunes. The dunes run along 15 miles of beautiful lakeshore on Lake Michigan and in places rise to stand up to 200 feet tall.
The park acts as a preservation system to protect the swamps, marshes and lands encompassed within its borders that had previously been in danger by commercialization of the resources.
The creation of the park allows for visitors to enjoy the beauty of the dunes and the breathtaking views of Lake Michigan while hiking along the 45 miles of trails, searching out one of the many species of plant and wildlife or having a picnic on the beach, the opportunities are endless.
Located outside of Chesterton, Indiana in the northern region of the state, the park is easily accessible from nearby towns and cities along Lake Michigan. A perfect destination for those who love the outdoors.
