As of February 15, 2019, the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore has a new name - Indiana Dunes National Park. The National Park System consists of 419 of our nation’s most special places with more than two dozen different titles like National Lakeshores, Seashores, Parks, Historic Sites and Memorials. Only 61 of the 419 are called “National Park.” Now Indiana Dunes is on that list. We are working with park partners to seize this opportunity to rebrand Indiana Dunes National Park.
This interactive exhibit gives you just a glimpse of what we have to offer - beautiful forests, meadows and lake beaches with towering dunes nestled among towns and cities in Northwest Indiana that are friendly and welcoming.
We invite you to discover why the Indiana Dunes is the most visited attraction in Indiana. If you live here, you know how great it is. If you are visiting, I suspect you will be impressed with the wonderful natural landscapes that you never imagined were this close to the third largest city in the United States.
The exhibit is open every day, 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM, with extended hours until 6:00 PM from Memorial Day until Labor Day.
