NATIONAL PARK FEE PROGRAM MAKES IMPROVEMENTS TO LAKE VIEW COMFORT STATION POSSIBLE
Porter, In: The National Park Service has completed an upgrade of the restrooms at the Lake View overlook in Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore. Recreation fees collected at West Beach and the campground were used pay for converting the restroom from pit toilets to flush toilets and to make the restrooms wheelchair accessible.
Lake View is open every day of the year from sunrise to 11:00 p.m. year round and no fee is charged.
Did You Know?
Cowles Bog is not a true bog but rather a fen because it has an underground water source. This water source has contact with limestone bedrock, making the fen’s water slightly alkaline. Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore is restoring a portion of this fen.
