Contact: Bruce Rowe, 219-395-1609
INDIANA DUNES NATIONAL LAKESHORE: The National Park Service has installed a new fee system at Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore's Dunewood Campground in time for the busy summer season. The campground now features an Automated Fee Machine that will allow quick and convenient check-in at the campground 24 hours a day. This machine, that replaces the envelope and drop safe system used since the campground opened, will take credit and debit cards only. Cash will no longer be accepted. Sites are still available on a first-come, first-served basis, but with this new fee machine campers can now pay at one time for their entire stay of up to 14 days.
Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore is part of the National Park Service. More than 20,000 National Park Service employees care for America's 397 national parks and work with communities across the nation to help preserve local history and create close-to-home recreational opportunities.

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.
