Getting to Indiana Dunes National Park
Indiana Dunes National Park is locator along the shores of Lake Michigan, and was just recently elevated from National Lakeshore to National Park. It’s very close to several urban areas, including Gary, Indiana, and the massive metropolitan area of Chicago. Interstate 94 runs right past the park, and provides the easiest access from distant origins.
