The fee for camping at Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore's Dunewood Campground goes up to $18 this Thursday (May 9). The increase of three-dollars a night was approved by the National Park Service to cover the cost of adding municipal water to the campground. A new waterline was installed last year and went into service earlier this spring.
National Park officials say 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.
