Indiana, located in the Midwest region of the U.S., is comprised of three main geographic regions: the Great Lakes Plains in the north, the Till Plains in central Indiana, and the Southern Plains and Lowlands in the south.
The Great Lakes Plains is a lowland that traces the Great Lakes, and is covered by sand dunes along Lake Michigan in Indiana. The Till Plains, characterized by low hills and valleys, run through the center of Indiana, south of the Great Lakes Plains. Further south, the Southern Plains and Lowlands is the hilliest part of the state.
