The area including the Indiana Dunes State Park and Dunes National Lakeshore is unique in its diversity of geologic features and terrain. The forces of glaciers, wind, and water have combined over the eons to create picturesque morainal topography, a vast freshwater lake, great expanses of sand in the form of beaches and dunes, and bogs containing exotic plant species. Soon to be completely surrounded by an ever-expanding urban-industrial complex, the dunes area will remain as a lasting monument to the complexity and beauty of nature.
