About

Want to find out about which beach will best meet your needs? Just stop by the Indiana Dunes Visitor Center. Our front desk destination concierges are very knowledgeable and can explain beach options, provide directions to each, and help you find the perfect location for you. If you happen to drop by after hours, the brochure-stocked vestibule is open around the clock and you can find maps there. You can also walk through our ever-changing exhibit room, learn about the history and ecology of the Dunes at our in-house movie theatre and pick out educational mementos in our bookstore. Don't miss... taking a walk around our building and learning about its eco-friendly architecture. Go to each station to learn about rain gardens and native landscaping, and get ideas of environmentally friendly things you can do at home.
