Indiana Dunes National Park
On February 15, 2019, Indiana was given its first national park! After 53 years as the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore, the area was renamed the Indiana Dunes National Park. Chosen as one of the “Top 10 Urban Escapes” by National Geographic, the 61st National Park is a series of sites along the southern shore of Lake Michigan, which includes 15 miles of beaches, more than 50 miles of trails, dunes, bogs, historic sites, camping, and more. Just watch for the brown signs along Highway 12. The park’s biodiversity ranks seventh out of all 400-plus National Park Service protected lands. With over a thousand native plant species and 370 bird species, it is one of the most biodiverse areas in the U.S. Check our events page for information about guided tours and ranger-led hikes.
