INDIANA DUNES NATIONAL LAKESHORE: The fee for camping at Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore's Dunewood Campground will increase to $18 on May 9. The new fee, an increase of $3 per night, was approved by the National Park Service to cover the cost of adding municipal water to the campground. A new municipal waterline was installed in 2012 and went into service earlier this spring. The new water system will improve the quality and reliability of the water supply compared to the previous well system and increases the capacity of hydrants to provide fire protection.

Before approving the increase, the National Park Service solicited public comment and received no negative comments. Surveys of comparable campgrounds in Indiana, Illinois, and Michigan were also conducted and found that prices ranged from $19.00 - $29.50.
