Indiana Dunes crowds described as “overwhelming” during holiday weekend


(Network Indiana) Indiana Dunes beaches were packed with people this holiday weekend.

On Sunday, thousands lined the Indiana Dunes beaches by noon. In the parking lots, most of the license plates were from Illinois.

John Aierre Anderson, a supervisory ranger of the Indiana Dunes National Park, said his team expected the rush but that managing those large crowds during the coronavirus pandemic was overwhelming.

Anderson and his team did their best to remind people of the social distancing guidelines while on the beach that stretches 15 miles across the Dunes state and national parks.
