PARK ADVISORY

The campground store will be closed on Monday 03/04/24 and Tuesday 03/05/24 for inventory. The lighthouse gift shop will be closed until further notice. We apologize for the inconvenience. 


We now have a track chair available for visitors with mobility impairments, thanks to the Ford Bronco Wild Fund. Visitors are encouraged to call the park to reserve the track chair at least 48 hours in advance to ensure availability. There is no additional charge to use the track chair, but a Park Passport or park admission is required for entry for all visitors. Read more about this new track chair, here.


Due to safety concerns, the Hunting Island lighthouse is currently closed to tours, until repairs can be made.  The lighthouse can still be viewed from the grounds and docents will be on hand to interpret and give more information about the lighthouse.  We apologize for the inconvenience.


Join us on a tour of St. Phillips Island! Click here for details!
