The National Park Service has closed part of Indiana Dunes National Park until further notice.
The national park beach and its parking lot area at Porter Beach have been closed due to unsafe health conditions.
Dig The Dunes says the closure is related to overcrowding, unsafe sanitation practices, and a lack of social distancing. The park is reminding visitors that they should comply with the safe distance recommendations from the CDC and Governor Holcomb.
All of the park trails and most of the national park’s beaches remain open, and Park Rangers will patrol the area and charge those violating the order.
