Welcome to the Hammond Port Authority

Located on the picturesque Southern Shores of Lake Michigan, the Hammond Port Authority is just 20 minutes by land or 12 nautical miles from Chicago.

A recreation haven, there’s something for everyone clustered around three lakes — all within two square miles and linked with a pedestrian trail.

Please join us for one of our upcoming events… or just for a day of relaxing fun.
