Operating Hours & Seasons

Cape Henry is open year round. It is recommended that all visitation be conducted between the hours of dawn to dusk.

Because Cape Henry is located on Fort Story Military Reservation it may be closed during periods of heightened National Security.

The base no longer issues passes at the gate to visit the park and you cannot drive a personal vehicle onto the base unless you have official base access, i.e., military ID, retiree ID, dependent ID, etc. Visitors must now park in a designated parking spot near the gate and board a free shuttle that will take them to the park
