Parking lot at ORV Ramp 38 closed this summer during Avon beach nourishment project

June 02, 2022 Posted by: Michael Barber

Through this summer, Cape Hatteras National Seashore's parking lot at off-road vehicle (ORV) Ramp 38 will be closed while it serves as a staging area for beach nourishment equipment. Visitors who planned to park in the parking lot at ORV Ramp 38 should instead consider using nearby parking lots at Haulover Sound Access and Kite Point Sound Access.

ORV Ramp 38 remains open, but visitors with beach driving permits can expect some intermittent, short-term delays entering and exiting the ramp as beach nourishment equipment is moved safely to and from the beach.
