Beverly Shores

Central Avenue Beach along the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore has been closed due to hazardous conditions, as the beach has eroded to almost nothing, and the high winds of the last few weeks have exposed asphalt and other unsafe surfaces. The previous trail to the beach is now an 8 foot drop-off.  (Credit: Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore/Facebook)

Central Beach Closed Due To Erosion Along Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore

Chief Ranger Mike Bremer said the beach at Central Avenue, on the east side of Beverly Shores, has been closed indefinitely, because high waves last week washed away the sand, leaving an eight-foot drop-off, which has at its base some jagged pieces of an old road that used to run along the beach.
