The Brown Kintzele Ditch Unit of the Great Marsh is located in the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore and is at the furthest east extant of the original Great Marsh, which historically stretched from Burns Harbor to nearly Michigan City through Porter and LaPorte counties, Indiana. The "West Subunit" of Brown Kintzele is just east of Lake Shore County Road and south of Beverly Drive. Restoration work has not yet begun on this portion of the Great Marsh, and as of 2011 this was a cattail marsh.
