Remark: Camp Good Fellow, located on Howe Road, was a summer camp constructed by the United States Steel Company for children of its employees. Comprising a total of 63 acres located along the Little Calumet River, the camp operated from 1941 to 1976. In 1976, the National Park Service purchased the property as part of its expansion of the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore. Today, the Indiana Dunes Environmental Learning Center occupies the former Good Fellow Camp property.
