Chesterton is located in Porter County in northern Indiana near Indiana Dunes State Park. As of the 2000 census, the population was 10,488. It's part of what is known as the Duneland Area, which encompasses Chesterton, Dune Acres, Beverly Shores, Burns Harbor and Porter. The Indiana Dunes State Park consists of 2,182 acres of beautiful, historical and unique landscape. It includes more than three miles of Lake Michigans south shore, all of which provides a lovely beach area. Eighteen hundred acres are wooded and contain some of the most diversified flora and fauna of the Midwest. Other areas are made up of drifting sand dunes. A pavilion on the beach provides shelter, bathhouses and a complete snack bar during the summer season. A Nature Center is also located in the park and trails are available for hiking and cross-country skiing. Swimming is permitted in designated areas only when lifeguards are on duty. Indiana Dunes State Park also offers 140 campsites. The Chesterton Commercial Historic District, originally called Coffee Creek is located a little south of the current downtown. All of the lakeshore towns of the Duneland Area offer shopping, fine dining, performing arts, outdoor recreation and world renowned festivals.

Chesterton Weather & Climate

Northwest Indiana has a four-season climate typical of most of the Midwest, with a few exceptions due to its proximity to Lake Michigan. Cold air passing over the warmer lake water induces precipitation in the lee of Lake Michigan in autumn and winter. As a result of this phenomena, heavy winter precipitation, especially snowfall, can extend eastward from Gary inland to as far as Elkhart. Lake-related snowfall and cloudiness can extend to central Indiana in winter, driven by strong northwesterly winds. In the spring, daily maximum temperatures decrease northward in northern Indiana because of the cooling effect of the Lake. Average daily minimum temperatures in autumn are higher in northwestern Indiana near the warmer lake surface than farther south.
