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.

Without fire, there could be no prairie at Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore. Non-prairie plant species would crowd out native prairie grasses. These rare grasslands are maintained through periodic controlled burns.
