West Beach Field Trip:
When scheduling a West Beach field trip through the Indiana Dunes National Park, you can select either a Self-Guided or Ranger-Guided visit.
In both cases you MUST...
- Coordinate the transportation, supervision, educational, and recreational opportunities.
- Fee Waiver: During the summer months (Friday of Memorial Weekend through the Monday of Labor Day Weekend), the West Beach area of the park is a Federal Fee Area. Groups visiting the area for genuine educational or scientific purposes during this time may obtain a West Beach Fee Waiver if your group meets established criteria. PLEASE NOTE: If your planned educational visit includes recreation at the lakefront, such as swimming, an educational fee waiver CANNOT be granted.
