Coast Guard Station Michigan City
Located at the mouth of Trail Creek and in operation since 1888, Coast Guard Station Michigan City is the sole Lake Michigan unit in Indiana. Station Michigan City's missions include Search and Rescue, Law Enforcement, Homeland Security, and Marine Environmental Protection. In the winter months, we are designated as an ice capable unit and train for rescue operations on the ice. The station's area of responsibility is encompassed by a line from the eastern Lake Michigan shoreline at 41-53'N, thence northwesterly to 42-04'N 087-00'W, thence southwesterly to shore at 87-14'W, thence easterly along the shoreline to the point of origin.
