PARK NEWS

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.


The Nature Center is now open 9 a.m. - 4 p.m. Tuesday - Saturday! Come check out our newly renovated facility and join us for a program!


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.

The original structure was built in 1859 and rebuilt in 1875 after it was destroyed during the Civil War. A unique feature of the lighthouse is that it was constructed of interchangeable cast-iron sections so it could be dismantled should it ever need to be moved. Severe beach erosion made it necessary to relocate the lighthouse 1.3 miles inland in 1889.
