Operating Hours & Seasons
Cape Henry is open year round. It is recommended that all visitation be conducted between the hours of dawn to dusk.
Because Cape Henry is located on Fort Story Military Reservation it may be closed during periods of heightened National Security. Be prepared to stop at the entrance gate and have your drivers license ready. All vehicles are subject to inspection.
