Due to the lapse in federal appropriations, the National Park Service (NPS) is unable to fully staff the properties under its management, including Virgin Islands National Park.
The Cruz Bay Visitor Center and Trunk Bay as well as the restrooms will remain open.
Park visitors are advised to use caution if choosing to enter NPS property, as NPS personnel will not be available to provide guidance, assistance, maintenance, or emergency response. Any entry onto NPS property during this period of federal government shutdown is at the visitor’s sole risk. Visitors should dial 911 in the event of an emergency.
