The National Park Service (NPS) is working service-wide with federal, state, and local public health authorities to closely monitor the COVID-19 pandemic. Based on guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and state and local public health authorities, access to Cabrillo National Monument is as follows:
Open: Trails, Old Point Loma Lighthouse, Cabrillo Exhibit, Assistant Lighthouse Keeper's Quarters Exhibit, Military History Exhibit, and restrooms. Park Store open Friday-Sunday 10am-5pm; Monday-Thursday 10am-4pm.
Closed: Auditorium, parking lot #3 in the tidepool area (parking lots #1 and #2 in tidepool area open).
While the listed areas are accessible for visitors to enjoy, a return to full operations will continue to be phased, and services may be limited. When recreating, please follow local area health orders and recreate responsibly. Masks are required in federal buildings and on NPS-managed lands when physical distancing cannot be maintained, such as narrow or busy trails, overlooks, and parking lots.
The CDC has offered guidance to help people recreating in parks and open spaces prevent the spread of infectious diseases. We will continue to monitor all park functions to ensure that visitors adhere to CDC guidance for mitigating risks associated with the transmission of COVID-19 and take any additional steps necessary to protect public health.
