Remark: Administration Lodge, Good Fellow Club Youth Camp. Located on Howe Road, near Porter, Indiana. The youth camp is operated by the Good Fellow Club of Gary Steel Works through contributions of members whose interest in youth activities has made the operation of the camp possible.

The summer camp was 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.
