Notice to Visitors: Watch Hill Marina Closure

A project to replace electrical and lighting systems, and adjacent bulkhead and boardwalk at the Watch Hill Marina will begin September 19, 2016. The visitor center, bathrooms, and family tent campground will also close. The Watch Hill Marina will be closed to ferry service and private boats through late summer 2017.

We appreciate your patience while the marina is under construction. Together with the Federal Highways Administration, the National Park Service is replacing marina components damaged by Hurricane Sandy. This project will make the marina more resilient to future storms.

Please find project updates on the Watch Hill web page.
