Ogden Dunes, IN

Indiana's Dune Country has been rediscovered. With its beautiful beaches, extensive parks, charming towns, relaxing privacy and fascinating history, we are surprised it took so long.

Nonetheless, Chicagoans and many others are once again calling Dune Country home. Ogden Dunes is located in Portage Township, Indiana. They also are calling it a number of other things: some refer to it as the “Casual Coast”; and the Chicago Tribune even called it the "Hamptons of the Midwest."
Ogden Dunes was once the home of a famous ski jump. In 1927, the Grand Beach Ski Club, later the Ogden Dunes Ski Club, bought a piece of land on one of the high dunes in the town. They constructed a 192 feet tall ski jump. The first meet was held on January 22, 1928. For the next four years, meets were held in Ogden Dunes. The longest jump ever reported on this structure was 195 feet. In 1932, the Norwegian Olympic Team of Birger Rund, Hans Beck, and Kaare Wahlberg (gold, silver, and bronze medalists) came to Ogden Dunes to try the tower. During the Great Depression the Ski Club had financial setbacks; combined with little snow, the club looked to sell the tower. In 1935, a ski club in Rockford, Illinois, purchased the tower and moved it that summer.

Today's new residents are also discovering the joys of the country side of Dune Country - Chesterton with its small town, country-club living; Valparaiso with its expansive country estates; and LaPorte County with its small farms, sprawling estates, private lakes and quaint country towns such as Hesston, Rolling Prairie, Mill Creek, Hudson Lake and Fish Lake.

So, whether one enjoys the beach or the country, Indiana's Dune Country continues to give its residents the freedom to get away from it all, whether full-time, on weekends or just for the summer. Perhaps it is time to discover Dune Country for yourself!
