Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore just became the 61st national park in the U.S.

The new park, officially called Indiana Dunes National Park, is located along Lake Michigan and offers scenic opportunities for hiking, biking, swimming, fishing, boating, horseback riding, and camping. Within the park, you can visit historical sites, and just outside of the park, you’ll find Deep River Water Park and Old Michigan City Light.

West Beach in Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore was named among the 10 Best Beaches for Families in 2018.
