Dunes 101

Along the coast of the fifth largest freshwater lake in the world, you’ll find Indiana’s most ecologically diverse area, the Indiana Dunes. Known by many for its beautiful Lake Michigan beaches, the Indiana Dunes area is also home to some of the world’s largest lakeshore dunes, including Mount Baldy, a 125-foot “living dune” shaped by glacial sands. Covered in native flora and wild lupines, the Indiana Dunes is the best place to spot hundreds of migratory birds, explore Hoosier history, and revel in a landscape full of natural splendor.
