PARK ADVISORY

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.


Road paving operations are in process at Hunting Island.  This project is expected to take 2-3 months for completion and will involve several road closures, traffic diversions and reroutes on a daily basis.  Please contact the park directly for the most up-to-date closures/reroutes and other information.  We apologize for the inconvenience.
