America the Beautiful Passes

Please Note

There are no entrance fees for Cape Lookout National Seashore. The ferry companies are privately owned and operated; therefore, ferry fees are not part of this program.

Tickets to climb the Cape Lookout Lighthouse are expanded amenity fees, which are not covered by the America the Beautiful passes. We do offer discounted ticket prices for those who qualify for Senior and Access passes as well as children 12 and younger. Learn more on the Lighthouse Climbing page.

Cape Lookout National Seashore does not currently issue America the Beautiful passes. Other National Park Service and National Forestry Service sites in eastern North Carolina do issue some or all forms of the pass.
