Cabrillo National Monument Closed during Government Shutdown

San Diego, CA – Due to the lapse of appropriations and the subsequent shutdown of the federal government, Cabrillo National Monument is currently closed for the safety of visitors and park resources. We are reviewing the updated contingency plan and are determining the appropriate next steps for Cabrillo National Monument.

All events (including education programs) are cancelled while the lapse of appropriations continues.

Many other national park sites across the country will remain as accessible as possible while still following all applicable laws and procedures. 

Please visit and select “Find a Park” for additional information about access to other parks and sites in this area. However, note that because of the federal government shutdown, NPS social media and websites are not being monitored or updated and may not reflect current conditions.

About the National Park Service. More than 20,000 National Park Service employees who care for America’s 418 national parks and work with communities across the nation to help preserve local history and create close-to-home recreational opportunities.
