  • North Beach is open, South Beach will open at 8 am 4/5/2014

    The oil-covered materials on the beach have been removed, and clean-up is nearly complete. The North Beach portion of the park is open to driving as of 11:50 am on 4/4/2014. The South Beach portion will open to driving at 8 am on 4/5/2014.

Gas Station

The park has no gas station. The nearest gas station is approximately ten miles north of the park.

If you are traveling down island, be aware that driving in four-wheel-drive mode and through deep sand will probably expend significantly more gas than on a highway. Please plan accordingly. You may need to take extra gas if going down island.
