The historic Indiana Dunes State Park Pavilion was constructed in 1929-30. It is an iconic representation of the park’s early history and use. It once contained a fine-dining restaurant. Over the years, its functionality has changed, and the DNR has been unable to adequately fund interior restoration and maintenance. A small concession operates during summer, as does a lifeguard office. The remaining space is storage area. One could only imagine what this place was like in its heyday back in the 30’s.
