OT Question...

If this kind of question is not allowed here, feel free to delete this post and I apologize.

I was just asked to take engagement pictures at the Dunes because the couple wants "beach" pictures. This is a bit of a stretch. If I'm correct that is a 5 hour drive. The couple has offered to drive, but that is 10 hours of driving for an hour or two of shooting.

I just do not think that is plausible for me. I am trying to think of other beaches in Indiana closer that we could go to. Does anyone have any suggestions? Does Eagle Creek have a beach?

This is a great question! I don't know of any other beaches, but there certainly are plenty of "nature" locations if that's what they're looking for...
A good substitute more local may be some parks that have rivers or streams. I know Mooresville's Pioneer Park has a stream with a decently wide sandy bank that I've used before.

(I wouldn't drive 10 hours for a shoot like that :) )

I know some of the resevoirs around Indiana have some beaches. Specifically, White Water State Park and Brookeville Reservoir. I am not sure if Geist does or not. Keep in mind, they are not "true" beaches and they do not compare, by any means, to Indiana Dunes. I also would not drive 10 hours for that shoot.

If river would work, try Holliday Park, go down the trails to the banks of the White River, pretty amazing there early in the morning.

Morse Reservoir in Noblesville has some sand, and you can see amazing sunsets there. Like Moostang78 said, this won't be beachy, but maybe your clients would compromise.
