About Indiana Dunes Tourism

Indiana Dunes Tourism is the official destination marketing organization for the Indiana Dunes area (Porter County, IN). Since 1986, we have been promoting the Indiana Dunes and the great communities throughout Porter County to potential visitors, as well as encouraging local residents to take advantage of all this area has to offer.

We operate the Indiana Dunes Visitor Center in partnership with the Indiana Dunes National Park. At the Visitor Center, located at 1215 N. State Road 49 in Porter, IN, you’ll find guides and personal assistance to help you enjoy Northwest Indiana and beyond. The Visitor Center, which opened in 2006, also houses restrooms, exhibits, a theatre, and a gift shop, along with our offices.
